NFL Free Agency 2021: Predictions on Where Top 25 Players Will Go

Lavonte David (31)

The speedy linebacker was integral in helping Tampa Bay winning a Super Bowl. The question now persists: Will the Bucs pony up an expensive multi-year contract for the proverbial heartbeat of their defense? David will certainly garner attention from a number of teams. He’s got the pedigree as a winner, along with the production of a very solid pro. Tampa would love to bring back both David and Shaquil Barrett, though the former might not take precedence over the younger pass rushing threat. Detroit — who had a molasses-esque defense a year ago — would do well to overpay for this athletic leader.

Prediction: David signs with the Detroit Lions
