On Thursday, a group of very lucky Buccaneers Season Pass Members were treated to a private chat with rookie offensive tackle Donovan Smith. The Bucs utilized Twitter's private Group DM feature to conduct the chat, which allowed fans to send questions and comments directly to Smith via Twitter, whether at home from their desktop or anywhere from their mobile device.

It's the second group chat the Buccaneers have hosted since the draft. In May, second-round pick Ali Marpet held a Q&A with a select group of Season Pass Members.

Smith answered several questions, ranging from his personal life to on-field play and his relationship with his new teammates in Tampa.

One season pass member wanted to know, "What's it like playing with Jameis?"

"Jameis is Jameis lol," Smith said. "He's fun to be around great leader and we click just fine."


Another Season Pass Member asked Smith if he had a nickname.

"Well my family calls me Dono," Smith said. "My teammates from college call me Donnie and I've been Big Don here so far."

And of course, an important question for any offensive lineman – his favorite snack. A turkey club, he said, was his go-to. 


Smith finished the chat by thanking the Season Pass Members for taking the time to join him. "I am just as excited as you all are," he said. "I appreciate you all. We need Raymond James Stadium rocking this year."
