Buccaneers vs. Browns: 4 players to watch closely
By Cory Kinnan
WR Scotty Miller
After missing two weeks of training camp with a hamstring injury, rookie wide receiver Scotty Miller is set to make his Buccaneers’ debut tonight. The sixth round pick from Bowling Green University in Ohio is known for his speed and agility, and he hopes to show it off tonight in Tampa Bay.
With blazing 4.4 second 40 speed and sub-seven second three-cone drill times, Miller can not only fly, but make sharp cuts on breaks as well. Miller has the ability to make plays in space, so it will be interesting to see how Arians and Leftwich choose to deploy the tiny speedster tonight.
Miller totaled over 2,800 yards and 23 total touchdowns for the BGSU Falcons over his four years, and tonight he could score his first in the pewter and red. While the Buccaneers used a draft pick on Miller this past April, he is no lock to make the roster after missing two weeks.
Undrafted rookies Spencer Schnell and Emanuel Hall have a chance to prove they deserve a roster spot as one of the final wide receivers on the depth chart. With Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, and Breshad Perriman as the only solidified receivers on the roster, Miller and the others are going to have to scratch and claw to make the team.
