Cornerback Depth On DisplayAugust 16th, 2013
With Darrelle Revis and Danny Gorrer not playing tonight, the Bucs’ remaining cornerback depth with be in the spotlight in New England. Rashaan Melvin, Johnthan Banks and Leonard Johnson likely will have plenty of opportunities to shine — or crumble — against Tom Brady.
Or will the Bucs roll out Michael Adams as the No. 1 slot cornerback? He’s a guy Schiano praised for his tackling against the Ravens last week.
Joe will be zeroing in on how, when and where those guys play.
Raheem-era holdover Anthony Gaitor also had good moments in practice this week, per various Twitter reports. Can he stick his name back in the mix?
Rookie CB Branden Smith, undrafted out of Georgia, is another guy to keep an eye on. He looked decent against the Ravens scrubs and was solid returning kicks for the Bucs.
Oh, the drama.
