Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Standouts from Training Camp, August 12

Five players who caught our eye during the Bucs' training camp practice on Wednesday.

1. LB Danny Lansanah
The Bucs usually run 11-on-11 drills twice during practice, once in the middle of the workout and again at the end, with individual drills in between. During the first 11-on-11 drill, Lansanah intercepted Jameis Winston and brought the ball back for a touchdown. Lansanah got his hands on a few balls during practice, deflecting two more passes during seven-on-seven drills.

2. WR Mike Evans
During the first drive in the second 11-on-11 drill, Evans caught an impressive, 24-yard pass down the left sideline to set the Bucs up on the 11-yard line. On the following play, he caught a jump ball from Winston over Johnthan Banks in the left corner of the end zone for a score. Evans also tip-toed the sideline to haul in a 30-yard pass on the right sideline earlier in practice.

3. OT Donovan Smith
Smith lined up against Larry English a handful of times during individual drills, and performed very well. English, who stood out earlier in the week while working with the first team, was often stonewalled at the line of scrimmage. Smith worked with the starters during team drills and is listed as a co-starter on the depth chart.

4. DT Tony McDaniel
McDaniel took a few reps with the first-team defense and was two, three or four yards in the backfield on more than a few plays. He recorded a tackle for a loss right at the start of team drills and got a great, uphill push during individual work.

5. WR Vincent Jackson
Jackson had a productive day, catching a touchdown right at the end of practice from Winston and performing well in seven-on-seven drills. Like Evans, Jackson had a nice sideline grab where he just managed to keep his feet in bounds.
