Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Sammie Stroughter

TAMPA, Fla. -- With Thursday’s release of quarterback Josh Freeman, it’s time to look back at the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' draft class from 2009.

Guess what's left of it? Nothing.

Freeman was the last player still on the roster and outside of him, the Bucs didn't get much out of this class. Defensive tackle Roy Miller (third round) and cornerback E.J. Biggers (seventh round) were role players for a bit.

But defensive end Kyle Moore (fourth round), offensive lineman Xavier Fulton (fifth round) and wide receiver Sammie Stroughter (seventh round) had very little impact for the Buccaneers.

You have to wait a few years to grade any draft. But, four years after the Bucs chose these players (in general manager Mark Dominik's first draft), I think it's fair to declare this class a failure.
