Bucs Training Camp Takeaways: Day 13

Here are just a few observations from Monday’s limited practice in the Bucs indoor facility.


-Ahead of joint practices with the Miami Dolphins this week, the Bucs elected to limit practice on Monday, shortening each period and ending practice early.

-In a red zone period, quarterback Jameis Winston hit wide receiver Mike Evans in the red zone as Evans was skimming the goal line. Evans made the catch and then stretched out his arms to break the plane and get the score for the offense.

-During the same period, safety Kentrell Brice nabbed himself a pick in the end zone. The pass was intended for tight end O.J. Howard, who looked to break the wrong way on his route. Brice made the read and positioned himself in the spot where the throw was supposed to go and made the catch.

-Outside linebacker Farrington Huegenin got through and reached up to bat down a pass at the line right at the goal line.

-Defensive lineman Jeremiah Ledbetter broke through the line and applied enough pressure on quarterback Blaine Gabbert to force him to hurry his throw, resulting in an incompletion. Had it been in a game, Ledbetter may have had the sack.

-Cornerback Vernon Hargreaves had a good stop of running back Ronald Jones as Jones tried to get to the outside and Hargreaves immediately met him there as the offense was backed up on their own five-yard line in situational drills.

-Tight end Antony Auclair sniped a ball from Gabbert over the middle through tons of traffic and elicited oohs from the crowd in the process.

-In goal line work, Evans made a one-handed over-the-shoulder grab in the right corner of the end zone from Winston.

-Wide receiver Justin Watson made a good catch right in front of the goal line from Gabbert but cornerback Carlton Davis was with him the whole way, forcing Watson out of bounds before he could turn around and cross the plane.

-Rookie wide receiver Demarkus Lodge had a great touchdown catch in the back corner of the end zone.

THE BEST THING I SAW: A tiny Bucs fan went rogue about halfway through practice in the indoor facility. The maybe-five-year-old boy ran out on to the field almost made it to the 50-yard-line before he was scooped up by security. With that kind of speed, the kid may have a future in the league himself.
