We continue our list of the top 15 Buccaneers with No. 10:

Anthony Collins, left tackle

What he did in 2013: A career backup in Cincinnati, injuries forced Collins into the starting role at left tackle last season and he responded quite nicely. He started seven games and played well enough to earn a nice contract and a starting role with Tampa Bay.

Why he’s No. 10 in 2014: The Bucs are taking a bit of a leap of faith by going with Collins at the most important position on the offensive line. But Collins showed last season that he can hold his own against some strong pass-rushers. The Bucs believe Collins can protect quarterback Josh McCown's blind side and also think he can be a strong run blocker.
