Huggins impressing the coaching staff

Coudl Huggins win a spot on the final roster?

Previously undrafted last season, Kareem Huggins was able to find a spot on the roster last season before bouncing around from the practice squad to the active roster. But his chances of making the final roster this season seemed a bit distant, but with news coming from camp that Huggins is not only outplaying his competition for the 3rd running back spot, Clifton Smith, but rather the entire running back corps.

Kareem Huggins, a 5-9 RB from Hofstra, has a real chance to make Tampa Bay’s final roster. He looks like the quickest back in camp.

In my opinion, Huggins would be able to provide excitement to a rather young Bucs offense, and his smaller frame should give him similar skills to San Diego’s Darren Sproles.

His 4.3 forty-yard dash is eye-popping, but we must see him use that speed in full padding on Sundays. The battle for the 3rd string running back between Huggins and Smith will last throughout training camp and into the preseason, and my early prediction is that Huggins will explode in the preseason, and ultimately earn his spot on the roster.

    I ran across your site and was wondering if you would be interested in doing an advertising deal with me? I am looking to place an ad on your site http://www.thepewterplank.com – I am selling Tampa Bay Bucs Tickets.

    I would be interested in placing a short text ad sponsoring your next post about Pitt. I would provide you with the HTML content for the ad. I would then ask that you leave the ad up for 12 months. We pay sites via paypal up front for the full 12 months. I would be willing to pay $100 for the year once the ad is up. It’s easy money, I promise :)

    Let me know your thoughts.
