At this time the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are not planning on hosting or holding a private workout for Oklahoma safety Quinton Carter. Carter is one of the top safeties in the 2011 NFL Draft and is projected to be selected in the second round. 

The 6-foot-1, 208-pound Carter has a private workout scheduled with the Denver Broncos. He also is discussing workouts and visits with the New Orleans Saints, Houston Texans, and Atlanta Falcons. 

While preparing for his rookie season, Carter has been working out in San Diego with Buccaneers defensive tackle Gerald McCoy, a close friend from playing together at Oklahoma. Carter totaled 222 tackles with eight interceptions, 5.5 passes for a loss, and 13 passes broken up in his collegiate career. In his senior year Carter had 96 tackles with four interceptions and 2.5 tackles for a loss.

In other draft visit news Penn State defensive tackle Ollie Ogbu and Cincinnait wide receiver Vidal Hazelton do not have plans to work out for or visit the Buccaneers. Ogbu has private workouts scheduled with the New York Giants and New York Jets. Hazelton has private workouts scheduled with the Jets and Cincinnati Bengals.

    I don't think we really need any new safeties. I like the ones we have in Grimm, Jones, TJack, Lynch and even Asante. They all performed well enough when given the chance.

    I have felt then and now, we need offensive line for hole openings and pass rush. And we need to get our defense back in the top 3 ratings.

    No surprise here. We learned that we can find quality safeties in the later rounds, and we have more pressing needs in the second round.
