Solid bounce-back season in '19

January 12, 2020
Gholston recorded 38 tackles (26 solo), one sack and two passes defensed across 16 games in 2019.
ANALYSIS
Gholston has now toiled for four different coaching administrations in Tampa, but he continues to retain a spot on the roster due to his typically steady play in the defensive-line rotation. In 2019, the 28-year-old bounced back from the most unproductive season of his career a year earlier, upping his tackle total from 10 to 38. Gholston is on the books for a reasonable $4.75 million in 2020, so he's likely to continue in his current role next season.

2014
2013
Gholston had a sack-less season for the first time in his career in 2017, particularly noteworthy considering he played in 14 games and played a solid amount of snaps. The 2013 fourth-round pick reportedly slimmed down this offseason in an effort to gain some quickness, which he'll try to put to good use while backing up Jason Pierre-Paul at left defensive end.
Gholston is big for an end and sees some snaps at tackle as a result, so his pass-rushing prospects are probably modest at best with a career high of just three sacks. He's still on the radar in most formats, though, because he piles up tackles at an advanced pace. He finished 2015 with 67 stops, and even more impressively, he did that on just 674 defensive snaps. Given that Tampa Bay re-signed him to a five-year contract this offseason, he's believed to be healthy after a dislocated elbow ended his season after Week 14 of last year.
The 25-year-old starting left end enters his contract year looking to build on a 2015 season that saw him total a career-high 67 tackles while playing 16 games for the first time his career. However, Gholston has yet to tally more than three sacks in any of his three campaigns, somewhat limiting his IDP value. He also faces stiff competition from fellow end Jacquies Smith, who's supplied 13.5 sacks over the last two seasons and looms behind him on the depth chart.
Gholston is one of six players competing to become a rotational end for the Bucs.
Gholston showed some flashes towards the end of his otherwise non-descript rookie season in 2013. He will figure into the mix at defensive end for the Bucs in 2014.
Gholston was selected by the Buccaneers with 126th overall pick in this year's draft. It will be interesting to see how the team will use him, as he doesn't seem to be a natural fit as a DE in a 4-3 system.
