More Catapult Talk Surrounding DotsonJune 4th, 2013
Those holding out hope the Bucs might jump on a veteran right tackle to replace and/or compete with Demar Dotson should probably give it up.
Two weeks ago, offensive line coach Bob Bostad said Dotson had “catapulted” his game after early work this offseason and starting all 16 games last season.
But today at One Buc Palace Greg Schiano took it a step further, saying he expects big improvements from Dotson, who is taking advantage of his late-bloomer opportunity.
“Here’s where he can make a huge jump this year, having that experience in his back pocket,” Schiano said.
Schiano went on to explain that Dotson, a hoops-first guy before taking up football in his senior year in college, didn’t have the benefit of endless live reps in high school and college and is now a blossoming from his 2012 action.
This is very high praise — almost as high as not acquiring competition for Dotson in the offseason. Damn, if Dotson pans out and the rest of the Bucs’ offensive line stays healthy, the Bucs should have the best O-line in the NFL.
