Tennessee offensive lineman Arron Sears is scheduled to meet with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Tuesday at One Buccaneer Place.
The 6-foot-3, 320-pound Sears is versatile enough to play guard or tackle. He received First-Team All-SEC and AP All-American Second-Team honors in 2006.
Sears could be a late first-round or early second-round selection in the 2007 NFL Draft. The Bucs already got an up-close look at Sears at the Senior Bowl in January. However, Sears played for the South team, not Jon Gruden's north squad.
Each offseason, NFL teams are allowed to bring in up to 30 collegiate players that are entering the draft. Sears is one of several players the Bucs will meet with between now and when the NFL Draft is held on April 28-29.
The following draft prospects have already met with the Buccaneers this offseason:
New Mexico LB Quincy Black Michigan DT Alan Branch Texas DE Tim Crowder Hampton LB Justin Durant Kansas State WR Yamon Figurs Portland State LB Adam Hayward Notre Dame QB Brady Quinn LSU QB JaMarcus Russell Kent State CB Usama Young
