Tampa Bay’s 2016 draft is officially an abject failure

The Bucs officially set fire to the pool of gas that surrounded the status of the 2016 draft class by releasing Vernon Hargreaves III on Tuesday.

Hargreaves was the last hope for a draft class that was simply abysmal when it comes to the Bucs’ ROI.

Just look at the list of players from that class:

  • CB Vernon Hargreaves III: Cut after injuries and inefficiency defined his three-and-a-half year career in Tampa Bay. Two career picks and 19 passes defensed over 33 starts.
  • DE Noah Spence: He looked good during his rookie year, but injuries and an inability to crack the starting rotation dismissed Spence from Tampa Bay.
