Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ Daily Snaps: July 27, 2015


Welcome back to another week of Bucs’ Daily Snaps, Bucs fans. Training Camp starts Saturday, so this week will be full of Bucs info as the team gets ready to prepare for another season. Here we go!

To start off, we have two posts from Bleacher Report. The first one is from one of their featured columnists, Ian Wharton, as he discusses the biggest spot on each team that’s up for grabs in training camp. Can you guess which position he chose for the Bucs? Here’s a hint: While the team has one more than capable starter last season, the team added some reinforcements to bolster the depth chart.

The second piece is from Luke Easterling, who writes about why Mike Evans is primed for even bigger things in 2015. He cites three reasons which involve the addition of new offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter, his training sessions over the offseason and the effect some quarterback named Jameis Winston on the offense. All three of those reasons point to Evans having an even better year than his breakout rookie campaign. We must admit that we feel the same way.

Next up, we have the another entry in Pewter Report’s Bucs Critical Camp Question series, which asks if the offensive line has improved. “Overall, I believe the Bucs had the right mindset of adding rookies to learn and grow with Jameis Winston. Relying on four offensive line draftees from the past two years proves their confident in a long-term plan,” he ponders. “They’ve also maximized Dotson’s ability by allowing him to stay at his best side (right), while showing trust in other veterans like Mankins, Smith and Gilkey.” Although it would have been nice to see the team sign a free agent or two, it is imperative for Smith and Marpet to grow with Winston and the rest of the young offensive pieces. We will see how this pans out come Week One.

Last up, we have another edition of SR’s Fab 5. Reynolds discusses a variety of topics about next season, including unheralded Bucs defensive end T.J Fatinikun being the team’s Tasmanian Devil, fellow underdog defensive ends George Johnson and Jacquies Smith trying to prove the critics wrong, as well as his patented Bucs Shots. He also breaks down which defensive ends the team could take in next year’s draft. As usual, it’s a must read for Bucs fans.

Well, that’s it for today’s Daily Snaps. Come back tomorrow for a fresh set as we continue to get ready for training camp. Have a great Monday, Bucs fans.
