    Smith and Elliot stepping up is nice. Good for depth and competition. Bucs are six deep at CB which many NFL teams can not say.


    Smith is the only Buc CB without much experience. Very promising top six at CB currently. Top to bottom the strongest unit on the team IMVHO.

    Actually, just a few more. Alldaway named the most likely keepers, but don’t forget CB Robert McClain that they just signed to a 1 year contract. He played for Smith/Koetter at the Falcons.

      This list of CBs reminded me of a pretty good article by Bleacher Report back in 2013, titled The Anatomy of a 53-Man Roster in the NFL, http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1640782-the-anatomy-of-a-53-man-roster-in-the-nfl

      It just shows the uphill battle all these players have to make the team.

    If anybody was wondering who is the Bucs player in the picture (#46), it is Eric Nzoecha – Bucs participant in the NFL International Player Pathway Program. Don’t ask me to explain, I just read this stuff. lol.

      mac: You are truly a Cesspool of Knowledge. You know stuff that is beyond the mental capacity of mortal men, women or those undecided. A hundred years ago you would have been called “The macaBees Knees” . ( I never did quite get that 1920’s phrase but I know it was a good thing)

    2. 3.2


      Only 4 players this year? I thought this was a bigger program about 10 years ago.
