Buccaneers look to past for draft-day inspiration

TAMPA, Fla. — The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have dug into their past for inspiration on this draft day.

New Buccaneers general manager Mark Dominik had the jerseys of former Tampa Bay draftees who went to multiple Pro Bowls hung in the war room at Buccaneers headquarters.

That illustrious group includes Hall of Famer Lee Roy Selmon, Warren Sapp, John Lynch, Mike Alstott, Derrick Brooks and Ronde Barber.

Dominik did it because he wants the team’s scouts and coaches to realize the potential of what can be achieved during draft weekend.

It’s a visual reminder of what the franchise has accomplished on previous draft days.
