Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Standouts from Training Camp, August 18

Four players who caught our eye during the Bucs' training camp practice on Tuesday.


1. QB Jameis Winston
Winston looked strong on Tuesday, working the ball to several different receivers all over the field. During team drills, he placed a ball perfectly along the right sideline to Donteea Dye, dropped over the head of Alterraun Verner. Earlier in the drill, Winston had an impressive play under pressure, rolling out to his left and throwing a strike to Louis Murphy on the left hash about 25 yards downfield.

2. DE George Johnson
During the first play of one-on-one pass-rushing drills, Johnson bull-rushed Reid Fragel back four steps, and then onto his back to reach the quarterback. It was the only play during the individual portion where one player brought another to the ground. Despite missing two days due to an injury, Johnson has been one of the most impressive defensive linemen in camp.

3. CB Jude Adjei-Barimah
Interceptions were hard to come by on Tuesday, but Adjei-Barimah was able to snag one, intercepting Mike Glennon during seven-on-seven drills. Adjei-Barimah, who finds himself closer to the bottom of the depth chart, is battling for a roster spot.

4. OT Donovan Smith
Smith looked sharp during one-on-ones, but really stood out when the offensive and defensive linemen broke off into two-on-twos. Smith moved his feet well and was able to seamlessly pick up the defensive linemen's stunts. He lined up against Clinton McDonald on a handful of plays and handled the responsibility well.
