Buccaneers: Which undrafted rookies make the 53 man roster?
By Zach Sauers
The final undrafted rookie that has a better chance of making the 53 man roster is Boise State alum Jonathan Moxey. This 5’10” 190 pound corner fits the mold of exactly what Defensive Coordinator Mike Smith looks for to fit his defensive schemes.
Tampa made it clear throughout the draft process that they want competition at the corner back position. After signing three undrafted rookies this off-season (one has already been cut, Greg Mabin), Smith has made it clear that there will be a great training camp battle brewing.
Over the rookie mini-camp, Scott Reynolds of Pewter Report mentioned that Moxey may have had the best secondary play of the weekend out of any of the rookies.
The Bucs have most of the cornerback room returning from the 2016 season besides veteran cut Alterraun Verner. By including failed safety project Ryan Smith back into the corner back position, who would Moxey edge out? Time will tell, but judging by the clip above, Moxey has ability. He may be able to turn some heads of the coaching staff this summer.
