5 Standouts from Training Camp, July 28

A few players who impressed during the Buccaneers' training camp practice on Friday.

1. QB Jameis Winston
Winston looked sharp during his first training camp practice, finishing the day without throwing an interception. Players were not in pads, so most of practice consisted of seven-on-seven types of work. Winston had a strong connection with Mike Evans, Chris Godwin and Adam Humphries, with Humphries and Evans working with the first team alongside DeSean Jackson.

Evans caught nearly everything thrown his way on Friday. And he was targeted often. During seven-on-sevens, he dove to catch a ball in between several defenders near the middle of the field. Evans was targeted on back-to-back plays at the start of seven-on-sevens and hauled in both passes.


  1. WR Chris Godwin**
    Godwin was one of the most impressive Buccaneers during OTAs and mini-camp and has carried that momentum into training camp. He had one of the top plays of the day, keeping his focus to catch a tipped pass with one hand. He had another diving reception earlier in practice.

4. CB Robert McClain
Turnovers were scarce on Friday, but McClain was able to force one. During team drills, McClain  intercepted Ryan Fitzpatrick and returned it for a touchdown. McClain didn't get many reps with the starters, though. Vernon Hargreaves and Brent Grimes worked with the first team on the outside while Javien Elliott saw a significant number of snaps in the slot.

The Buccaneers' first training camp practice was a hot one, but that didn't stop the fans from coming out in full force. The stands at One Buccaneer Place were packed when the team began practice at 8:45 and the fans were loud throughout the entire workout. If Friday was any indication, Saturday should be an exciting day.
