    Luke Easterling thought overall, there looks to be a lot more talent at this year’s #Bucs rookie mini-camp than last year’s. Will be some intense competition.

    Will PR sum up what you guys saw and who you like from the tryouts? Pretty sure Winston and the draft picks are solid. Maybe 2 or 3 tryouts stood out. Are there any UDFAs already signed that didn’t cut it? PR’s opinion, please!

        Why funkdoc19, you wouldn’t be trying to get rid of me, would you? Just kidding! And thanks for the thought, but while it sounds interesting, it also sounds like work and I’m done with that.

        Actually, I understand stats and analytics, but I’ve come to really enjoy the simpler game of football. I learned something while watching games with my wife last season. Having read the CBA, the NFL rules book and everything else football, on every play I was quick to explain the rules to her.
        After a while, she said “I really like football a lot more when I don’t understand the rules”. So I’m going to keep it simple – just watch the games and of course talk to you guys every once in a while.

        Thanks anyway, but I’ll just see ya around! lol.

      I think this year we will really get to assess Warhop coaching ability with having a real OC on staff.

      I’m sure last year he was more involved in other aspects than assignments and fine tuning his troops execution.

    “When he misses it is never to the inside where pick-sixes often happen when defenders jump routes.”
    6.6 yards per return on FSU’s 20 ints last year.
    Which isn’t bad.
