Tristan Wirfs will garner a lot of attention this season. Attention from Bucs fans eager to see whether the first-round pick will have the makings of a franchise fixture. Attention from opposing defenses looking to see if they can expose him because he is a 21-year-old rookie.

As it turns out Wirfs, the team’s new starting right tackle and 13th pick in April’s draft out of Iowa, is at his best when he is not being noticed.

“The best thing I can say about Tristan (is) you don’t really say his name too much,” Bucs offensive coordinator Byron Leftwich said. “As a rookie offensive lineman, that’s a beautiful thing, right? Any time you have to say his name a lot, that’s probably an issue. But with Tristan, I haven’t really had to say his name but once or twice so far. … He’s playing well for us right now.”
