The Buccaneers begin a three-day mini-camp on Friday that will last through Sunday, and while part of the mini-camp is to get the rookies drafted last week acclimated to the new system, the team is also trying to find some diamonds in the rough. The Buccaneers announced on Thursday afternoon the 50 players that would be participating in this weekend’s mini-camp.https://www.pewterreport.com/index.php?option=com_k2&view=item&id=9813:&Itemid=15
Ask them what they’re favorite foods, movies, and pets are?! Say, “deep draft, ha?” Seriously, I can find some interesting guys here . . .Lb Bar'ee Boyd, Dt Galen Clemons, Cliff Crews(looks to me to be stricktly a weakside; but, I did see some middle linebacker play; but, that would be on that level of play), De Julius Forte(can he be a strong side linebacker?), Mlb Chase Garnham, De Ryne Giddins, De Cory Henry has the record of sacks for his school and and good physical stats(16 sacks, not that many; but, maybe I just don't know the situations of the games he played), Jamel Johnson might be another Wr/Te conversion; of course, he'll have a hard time making this team. Mark Joyce can play special teams; but, with the teams depth at safety and corner . . . ; cb Chris Parks has good youtube highlights; stats I could find didn't seem to be much; maybe Qb's generally passed the ball the other way? Te Taylor Sloat might be a good Te to Fb conversion player; also seems to be good at receiving and blocking. I don't know what to ask them, but those are the interesting players I could find(other than the undrafteds who were actually signed).
Considering we’ve got a bunch of Texas A&M players among the 50, I would recommend watching A&M v. Alabama. I’ve caught Hurd and Jenkins playing a few downs, Hurd made a nice tackle early. They talked about a violation of team rules suspension against several guys including Jenkins. I’m too lazy at the moment to look into it more.
I think both Askew and Jenkins make this team… superior athletes that know how to play ball.They were both A&M - and came to the same place in the NFL. Must be a question or two for those guys about that...
