Buccaneers: Senior Bowl standouts the Bucs should have their eye on
The annual Senior Bowl has been a hot bed for scouting with all NFL teams including the Buccaneers sending representatives to Mobile, Alabama each year for the practices and game.
No post-season All-Star game gets the coverage and attention the Senior Bowl does each season as teams like the Buccaneers even occasionally send coaches down to get a real close look at the upperclassmen coming into the year’s NFL Draft.
2018’s was no different. In fact, I can’t remember a year when my Twitter timeline was more filled with Senior Bowl comments, highlights and analysis than this one.
NFL.com’s own Daniel Jeremiah and Bucky Brooks were also paying attention, and why wouldn’t they be? The two men may not be as well known to the general football population, but us ‘draft geeks’ out there know DJ and Bucky very well. They put out their names from this year who really helped themselves, so I decided to sift through them.
What follows are the guys Jeremiah and Brooks thinks did well, who the Buccaneers are surely watching as well.
They aren’t all top picks. But guys who some of you know well, and some you don’t. These are guys to look out for at the NFL Combine, at Pro Days, and to just have in the back of your mind when the selection meeting is held later this year.
You don’t get to 4-12 without having some holes to fill. And the Bucs are certainly in need of some additional talent.
If these names weren’t already, they certainly deserve and have earned a spot on Jason Licht’s 2018 NFL Draft Board.
