Summary

Lavonte David appeared to be galvanised by the Bucs' selection of Devin White in last year's NFL Draft. The veteran showed the rookie a thing or two about the position, dominating on a week to week basis and reminding the league just how indispensable a player he is. David excels in coverage, with running backs and tight ends struggling to win the match-ups they would normally overcome with ease. David has not managed to reach the heights of his early career production over the past couple of seasons, but the Bucs defense has improved, meaning fewer opportunities. He remains a low-end LB1/high-end LB2 in all formats. (May 5)
