    That helped Rice get ready for the grind of an NFL career.

    I also expect to see some of Jeff Demps on 3rd down plays...
I hope so but I'm not convinced Demps will play this year.



Smith has looked good in mini camp.  Even better than the much hyped James.

AJ, was James really "much hyped"?  I saw a bunch about his good character, but was he hyped for his playing ability?



Oddly enough, it was Schiano who was hyping him big time. Not the media.  Usually its the other way around.  Seems like a good kid, and he has a great story, but that doesn't get you anywhere on Sundays in the NFL.

\\\\\\\"Java, do you understand this a perfect example of why people beg me to suspend or ban you on a daily basis? Are you actually trying to make a point? Seriously what is the reason for even commenting. In fact why do you even bother coming to the boards? What happened to the intelligent poster from years ago?  A real shame. Like the Bucs yesterday, a wasted effort.\\\\\\\"

agree its definitely about what you do on the field. I must have missed the Schiano hype. Id love to see the kid succeed, but ultimately as long as someone steps up a bit, great.

I was wrong, it was Dom.....



Bucs GM Mark Dominik "repeatedly mentioned" No. 189 overall pick RB Mike James as having the "inside track" to the No. 2 job behind Doug Martin.

May 3 - 10:21 AM


Bucs GM Mark Dominik is comparing sixth-round pick Mike James to former longtime Buccaneer FB/RB Earnest Graham.

Mike James is like Earnest Graham, but only in the sense that it will take a few years untill he contributes much.  He will be on the practice squad this year
