5 Standouts from Training Camp, July 29

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


  1. TE O.J. Howard**
    The Buccaneers weren't in pads on Saturday, but Howard was dominant in the receiving game. At the start of practice, Howard hauled in an impressive, one-handed catch in the middle of the field. He had another impressive grab near the end of practice and was targeted often throughout the day.

While Hargreaves didn't record an interception during Saturday's workout, he did get his hands on a few passes. Right before the start of seven-on-seven drills, Hargreaves jumped a route and batted away a ball intended for Donteea Dye. He got another pass breakup during team drills, knocking away a deep ball from Jameis Winston intended for DeSean Jackson.  


  1. S Chris Conte**
    Conte flashed on back-to-back plays during team drills. On one play, he recovered a fumble. The very next play he tipped a pass which would ultimately be intercepted by J.J. Wilcox. Conte and Keith Tandy have been working as the Bucs' starting safeties through the first two days of camp.

4. S J.J. Wilcox
As mentioned above, Wilcox picked up an interception off of Ryan Griffin during team drills. He also disrupted a pass intended for O.J. Howard during the same drill. Wilcox has been working with the Buccaneers' second-team defense thus far but is expected to compete for a starting job.

The Buccaneers signed Jackson hoping he could stretch the field vertically, and he did just that on Saturday. During team drills at the end of practice, Jackson was targeted on three deep passes. One was broken up by Hargreaves, the other went for a touchdown and the third was tipped, but Jackson still managed to hang on to it. It doesn't seem like Winston has any hesitation airing the ball out for Jackson to run and get.
