NFL sack leader Shaquil Barrett wreaking havoc for Bucs in 2019

You've heard the phrase "trust the process" before and, quite honestly, probably ad nauseam if you're fan of any major sport.

More often than not, however, things don't usually pan out at the professional level, and that's mostly because processes, personnel and personalities vary wildly across sports and teams. It takes a lot for all of the parts of a recipe to come together for a delicious outcome, as Tampa Bay Buccaneers linebacker Shaquil Barrett can most certainly attest.

Before Barrett even started his career in the league back in 2014, he ran into a massive stumbling block when playing Division II football for University of Nebraska-Omaha. The team ended it's football program and left Barrett searching for a new collegiate home, which he found at Colorado State in 2011. He wasn't an instant success there, though, and battled for two years to truly make a name for himself before finally breaking out in Year 3 -- racking up 12 sacks and an interception en route to be named the 2013 Mountain West Conference Defensive Player of the Year.

9 sacks in 4 games is pretty ridiculous.

Good story on this guy.

27 and undrafted in 2014 with never more than 5 sacks in any season in his NFL career up until now. Another late-bloomer so dunno what he ends up with this season ?

He never had a shot in Denver because of Chubb and VonMiller. I give a lot of credit to Todd Bowles. He’s getting the most out of everyone. Trading McCoy for Suh was huge also. McCoy’s softness was affecting the entire defense for years.
