Source tells me the Bucs had a private meeting with running back Miles Sanders at his Penn State pro day today. Running backs coach Todd McNair put him through a workout, along with running backs coaches for the Titans, Panthers and Bengals. https://t.co/7rNioRywUp

Sanders – a former teammate of Bucs’ wide receiver Chris Godwin – played in 36 games over his three years with the Nittany Lions, totaling 276 carries for 1,247 yards (6.0 yards per carry) and 12 rushing touchdowns, nine of which came during his junior season in 2018.
Sanders also added 32 receptions for 193 yards.
JC Cornell from The Draft Network added to Laine’s report.

Should Sanders land in Tampa following the NFL draft – while they weren’t his former teammates like Godwin – he will join defensive end Carl Nassib and offensive tackle Donovan Smith as former Penn State Nittany Lions on the Bucs’ roster.
