WR Spencer Schnell

The already mentioned Spencer Schnell may be forcing his way onto the Buccaneers’ roster as he continues to perform well in practice after his dominant showing against the Steelers last week. He was seen breaking off of a beautiful route against the Dolphins in their joint practice yesterday, and he may have sixth round pick Scotty Miller’s roster spot in question.

Last week, Schnell caught seven passes for 119 yards against Pittsburgh as the early arc of his career is beginning to resemble that of Adam Humphries’. Will Schnell be able to get open underneath again tomorrow night and rack up the catches or was his performance a one hit wonder?

The 5-9 agile receiver can certainly find a niche on this Buccaneers’ roster after the departure of Humphries in free agency, and if he keeps performing at a high level this summer, the Buccaneers may not have a choice but to roster him. If the Buccaneers attempt to stache him on the practice squad, then another team could easily claim him as their own.

Schnell has put together some good tape this summer thus far and looks to continue to add to that as he hopes to land on a final roster somewhere. Will that be in Tampa as he continues to make a name for himself in the pewter and red?
