Tampa Bay Buccaneers

5 Standouts from Camp, August 13

A few players who impressed during the Bucs' training camp practice on Saturday.

1. WR Vincent Jackson
After limited action in the Bucs' preseason opener against the Eagles, Jackson put together and impressive performance during Saturday's practice. Jackson had one of the top plays of the day, hauling in tipped pass during team drills. The ball had been deflected by Brent Grimes, but Jackson dove to bring it in. Jackson had another highlight reel play, catching a touchdown in the back of the end zone during red zone drills and narrowly keeping his feet in bounds.

2. CB Jude Adjei-Barimah
Adjei-Barimah has done well working in the slot during training camp, seeing significant time with the first team through these past three weeks. The second-year corner battled Adam Humphries all practice and had an eye-opening play during red zone drills, jaring a pass out of Humphries' hands before he could gain control. Adjei-Barimah also looked strong during one-on-one drills.

  1. OL Kevin Pamphile**
    Donovan Smith wasn't on the practice field on Saturday, so Pamphile moved from his usual position at left guard to fill in at left tackle. Stepping in at guard was Evan Smith, who has been battling Joe Hawley for the starting center job. Pamphile's versatility will be key for the Buccaneers this season, whether or not he beats out J.R. Sweezy for the starting job at left guard. Pamphile handled his responsibilities at tackle well, winning a handful of reps against Robert Ayers during one-on-one drills.

Since being named the Bucs' starting tight end, Brate has continued to impress. During a press conference last week, Brate said he took pride in having good hands. Throughout camp, he's proven to be a reliable target. He caught everything thrown his way on Saturday, including a leaping catch from Jameis Winston in the middle of the field.

5. OT Demar Dotson
Some of the Bucs' offensive linemen have had their ups and downs throughout the first few weeks of camp. For Dotson, it's been almost all ups. The Bucs' right tackle has been the team's most consistent lineman, winning essentially every rep he took during one-on-one drills on Saturday.
