3 Players to Watch at Practice, August 24

A few players to keep an eye on when the Buccaneers take the field for their final open training camp practice on Thursday.

1. WR Bobo Wilson
Today is the Buccaneers' final open training camp practice, and Wilson finds himself in the thick of the race for a spot on the 53-man roster. Throughout training camp Wilson has been consistent and proven to be a strong route-runner. He is also capable of returning kicks, if need be. But the Buccaneers' are very deep at wide receiver, so it won't be easy for him to earn a jersey for Week 1. Keep an eye on Wilson as a potential practice squad player if he doesn't make the opening day roster.

  1. LS Andrew DePaola**
    DePaola suffered an unfortunate knee injury at the end of last season, right before he was slated to become a free agent. He remained unsigned through the spring but was brought back to Tampa this past week to compete with Garrison Sanborn for the starting long-snapping job. DePaola had been the Bucs' long-snapper for the three previous seasons and always preformed at a high level.

3. LB Adarius Glanton
Glanton has been asked to fill several roles, but he's handled his evolving responsibilities well. A year ago, Glanton was a fixture on special teams. He was on the field for the majority of Tampa Bay's special teams plays and flashed often on coverage teams. This year, he's been working on with the team's first-team defense occasionally. The Buccaneers were thin at linebacker on Wednesday with Devante Bond and Kwon Alexander sidelined with injuries. If both players are out again today, expect to see a lot of Glanton.
