NFL training camps are getting going, and it's just about the most exciting time of the offseason for fans. Real football is so close, we can smell it. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are amidst a big change under center, and all eyes will be on the quarterback position.

But, there are other positions worth watching, most notably for depth purposes. The Bucs could use some guys to step up, or look at signing other veterans to come in and take some of those reserve roles.

If the Bucs made any in-camp moves or decided to shift their roster a bit, a few key names would be on their way out of training camp before it was all said and done. Let's look at four of those, in particular.

Luke Haggard, OT

At tackle, the Bucs will be starting stud left tackle Tristan Wirfs on the left side with Luke Goedeke likely to take on the starting role on the right, replacing Donovan Smith. The Bucs' depth at tackle is questionable, at best, which could make this position tough to predict in terms of who makes the roster.

But, as of right now, behind Wirfs and Goedeke is a myriad of guys. Virginia Tech undrafted free agent Silas Dzansi is behind Wirfs, while veteran Justin Skule is behind Goedeke on the right side. From there, the Bucs have veterans Michael Niese and Grant Hermanns on the left and right, respectively.

All the way at the back end of the depth chart are undrafted free agent signings Luke Haggard and Raiqwon O'Neal. It's highly unlikely that Haggard makes it past training camp or maybe the first preseason game. Again, tackle is a position that the Bucs need to address by possibly adding one more veteran for depth, and Haggard could be the first tackle cut.
