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.
