Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Standouts from Training Camp, August 9

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



1. WR Vincent Jackson
Jackson was targeted often during practice, especially in the red zone, and put together one of his best days of training camp so far. Early in the red zone drill, the Bucs lined up from the two yard-line and Jameis Winston threw a dart to Jackson in the back of the end zone for a touchdown. Winston went back to Jackson on the next play, and Jackson pulled in another touchdown over Sterling Moore.

2. TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins
Like Jackson, Seferian-Jenkins was dominant in the red zone. During seven-on-seven drills Winston dropped a pass right at the goal line and Seferian-Jenkins dove to catch it in the end zone. Later on in 11-on-11 drills, he made another impressive touchdown catch over Bradley McDougald.

3. RB Dominique Brown
For the past few days, it's become apparent – Brown is not an easy guy to take to the ground. He's listed at 6-foot-2 and 241 pounds and he ran like it on Sunday. Most running drills aren't live in training camp, but the goal line drills are. More times than not, when handed the ball, Brown finished the play in the end zone instead of on the grass.

4. WR Kaelin Clay
Clay has been the front-runner to earn the punt returning job since the start of camp, but he took another step toward securing the spot, and a place on the Bucs' 53-man roster, on Sunday. For a portion of the special teams drills, Clay was the only player returning punts, instead of rotating with a few other players like he has been.

5. WR Mike Evans
The Bucs usually run an 11-on-11 drill, break into seven-on-sevens and then return back to team drills to finish up practice. In the first 11-on-11 segment, Evans caught a deep pass from Winston down the right sideline. After the team returned to 11-on-11 drills, he had another impressive catch, this one for a touchdown over Johnthan Banks in the back left corner of the end zone.
