Couple of players that jumped out at Joe: First is Monroe, who is listed as a wide receiver but played running back at Texas. The Bucs likely signed him more for his return ability than anything else.
As a sophomore, Monroe was a member of the Longhorns All American 4 x 100 meter relay track squad that finished sixth in the nation. In high school, Monroe won the Texas Class 4A 100-meter dash in a time of 10.45.
Smith, the Bulldogs cornerback, was featured by Joe during the East-West Shrine Game practices held in St. Petersburg this winter.
