5 Standouts from Camp, August 6

A few players who impressed during Saturday's training camp practice.


  1. S Chris Conte**
    Conte, who has been working as one of the Bucs' starting safeties, had his best practice since camp kicked off, intercepting two passes and nearly picking off a third. Conte picked up his first interception off at the start of practice to end the first-team offense's two-minute drill and added another takeaway when he intercepted a tipped pass. After practice, Head Coach Dirk Koetter praised Conte's cover skills, comparing him to a cornerback.

2. TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins
Earlier this week, Koetter said that Seferian-Jenkins would be working with the second-team offense and Cameron Brate would get the majority of the reps with the ones. Koetter's explanation was simple – Brate has been the better player during camp. On Saturday, Seferian-Jenkins put together an impressive performance, catching a touchdown during the two-minute drill after the ones failed to score in addition to catching a handful of passes throughout the day.

  1. DE Robert Ayers**
    The Buccaneers have lined Ayers up all over the field during training camp, whether it's on the edge or inside, and he's had success wherever he's been asked to play. On Saturday, Ayers impressed in the run game, picking up at least two tackles for a loss. He also did a nice job sniffing out a screen intended for Doug Martin to shut the play down in the backfield.

4. LB Adarius Glanton
Two of the Buccaneers' reserve linebackers, Glanton and Jeremiah George, had excellent practices on Saturday, so either player could be listed here. While Glanton and George both had impressive plays against the run, Glanton also picked up an interception, picking off a Mike Glennon pass intended for Peyton Barber.

Those who didn't see Jones' hit on Russell Hansbrough probably heard it. Jones, who had an impressive campaign as a reserve defensive end for the Bucs in 2015, laid a big hit on Barber in the beginning of practice and took down Mike James for a loss near the end of practice. Overall, it was an excellent day for the Buccaneers' defense.
