Day 1 For Devin White & Friends

May 10th, 2019

Big No. 45, Devin White, the savior of the Buccaneers defense, had his first practice at One Buc Palace today.

Bucco Bruce Arians had his eyes on the draft prize from his personal golf cart, from where Arians watches nearly all of practice.

White dropped what Arians called a sure a pick-6, but in all it was a successful Day 1 for the No. 5 overall pick, said the head coach.

“He jumped right out there and took control of the huddle,” Arians said. “And I think he’d like to have that pick-6 back, you know. But other than that, he had a very good command of what he was doing.”

“Overall, typical, probably better than normal rookie minicamp because we weren’t fumbling snaps all over the place. These cats, a lot of them it’s the first time they’ve ever been in [an offensive] huddle. … It’s a big learning curve, but I was pleased with what I saw.

White was all smiles for Joe and media before practice, saying the morning walk-through almost felt like a real practice because “we just got a lot of juice,” referring to the rookie class.

Joe asked White what he thought of the final six rounds of the Bucs draft and whether he knew anyone well that was selected. They’re basically brand new friends to White, he said, and the Bucs “made great picks” and he liked going heave on the defensive side of the ball.

No surprise that the defense ruled the day today, given that the Bucs have a lot of nobodies on offense in rookie camp. Seemingly right on cue, the Bucs’ lone drafted offensive rookie, speedy receiver Scotty Miller, caught the first pass of 11-on-11 work in practice.

    How’d the shinny WR flier look ?

  3. Elita Vita Says:

    Thought Devin was supposed to wear the number 41 jersey this year. Has that changed?

  4. 813bucboi Says:

    and how many picks did he have at LSU?

    GO BUCS!!!!

  5. Stanglassman Says:

    His number did, its 45 now.

  6. Sport Says:

    I’ve got a good feeling about this draft class. Partly because all you Negative Nancy’s are so overrun by your emotions, its easy, and fun, to bet against you.

    They will be properly coached from day one. Their attitudes will be infectious, sad but true David, McCoy are infectious in the non Dog way.

  7. SC Bucs Fan Says:

    I still don’t know how Licht didn’t know JPP and Be Keith were going to get hurt. What a tool.

  8. Collins Says:

    Wait till you see the strip tackles. Plus he does have good hands. Can catch but hits like a Mac truck. Biggest issue I ever seen ot him is he’s so fast he runs past the qb and then redirects at times. His biggest weakness is his biggest strength

  9. Todd Says:

    Elite Vita, he’s 45 now…thankfully. SO much better.

  10. louden Says:

    i will just say @all the dreamers without knowledge:

    hope hope hope
    season after season

    bad drafting, re-signing bad players, cutting good players, trading good players for BS compensation, having no run game because of waeak O-Line, having trouble to score on Offense because of it, having a bad defense with no depth…

    and they still continued to do so this offseason

    and some guys here talking about hope?

    that’s why this clown-show is at the bottom since a decade or more…

    i am talking football
    most guys here talking about hope..

    how about belief? go to the church or sth.

    i will post Suckaneersrelated football stuff – u know 

  11. 813bucboi Says:

    just heard jpp had “several” opinions on his neck and has decided not to have surgery…..

    not sure how i feel about this….i love football but a players safety is always first….

    GO BUCS!!!!!

  12. BucEmUp Says:

    Id like to see miller , rojo and perriman all get looks at return duty among others. We need big returns this season!!!!!

  13. louden Says:


    Suckaneers are build the Licht-way, instead of the right way:

    it is what it is..

    Suckaneers suck because of the FrontOffice

    they suck at talent evaluating and @ Roster building

    Joe why do you label these players so fast …. geez savior of the defense? Seriously … now I see why players get annoyed by the media… you guys talk a lot of poop (sh$&)

  15. NOSBOS Says:

    D$&@,looks just like Levante in that helmet. Dogs!!!

  16. LakeLand Says:

    We all know that the Bucs are champions of the “Underwear” league

    Let’s see what they do in September!

  17. LakeLand Says:

    Bruce Arians is driving a golf cart

    The Bucs didn’t include a walking cane in his contract?

  18. JimmyJack Says:

    Woof Baby!!!! Come out there on day one and get a pick6!!! He knows he dropped it but that a nice confident know you had a TD!

    GO BUCS!!

  19. Slugglife Says:

    Keep that negativity flowing guys. Don’t forget, there are 31 other teams you can claim. Switch to NE if you like. I won’t judge you.

    At least then you’ll be happy for a change.

  20. The Buc Realist Says:


    You should have a contest for the JBF fans!!!!!! Who ever can guess which game BA will get so disgusted from all the blowouts, will actual drive off in the golf cart during the game!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    2019 will reveal answers to the sheep, that the “real” fans already know!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    GO Bucs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  21. Mike Johnson Says:

    Better find us a DE. Ansah/Perry/Wilkerson and Hayes are still available on the free agent market. Teams are dumping players daily due to salary cap problems.
    Do not neglect the pass rush Bucs. JPP will never ever be the same. Plug one in and let her rip baby. NO EXCUSES.

  22. Todd Says:

    Good God. @louden is back.

    Damn, Joe’s…it’s been so nice lately without his ignorant posts.

    WHY do you want to screw your loyal readers over by having him contribute his vile, ALWAYS negative wall-of-words?!

    I swear…if his posts persist, you’re going to lose me. Maybe you don’t care because I tend to be optimistic.

    You know, if you have a nice glass of water and you allow someone to wipe their a$$ sans toilet paper and the. stick their middle finger in the water to stir, would YOU drink it?!

    Why do you expect US to?

  23. catcard202 Says:

    They took White, instead of Allen/Sweat/Burns….Because, you know…Licht happens!

  24. BucsBall80 Says:

    I wounder how many of you are going to go to are first home playoff game in over a decade? We will be the first team to lock up home field advantage. 13-3. Drinking koolaid and eating Ws.

  25. JGhoti86 Says:

    …and Louden shouldn’t be allowed on the computer, or the internet. Wow! That post was something else.

  26. louden Says:

    Suckaneers are gonna suck as long as Licht is GM

    bet on it looking at you Todd, would you bet on the Suckaneers winning more tgan 10 Games this year?)

    Fire Licht Tonight!

    this is an lousy @ss of an “prifessional” team

  27. louden Says:

    instead of White,
    Ed Oliver should have been the pick.

    younger/better Mcoy..

    now we got an overpaid old DT, on a roster full of holes and lacking talent..

    should pick up draft picks and/or younger talent in trade for McCoy..

    he deserves a chance to play for an winner also..

    while i have never been a big fan of McCoy..

    just as of Winston

  28. louden Says:

    winston had a great team arround him at Florida State..

    but the current state of the Suckaneers:

    O-line: rotten
    >> will lead to bad rushing game (especially short yardage)
    >> will lead to Jameis being in much more pressure
    >> will hurt the Passing Game

    only realy good ones that are not so easy to replace:

    Godwin, OJ Howard, Mike Evans

    rest is (easy) replaceable
    only one injury away from being less than average = WR/TE corps..

    no good depth..

    so Offense isn’t in very good shape (=SuperBowl Contender Talent)

    don’t get me started with the Defense..

    just let me tell you, that besides the QB – the two Lines define a teams backbone..

    the O line is rotten (Dotson is lacking and old, even if some dump people are still talking him up, as if he is an good RT – don’t give me sh.. it about some gradings by some sites – he’s simply just not good – lacks strengh, gets overmauled way too often in run and pass game..)

    RG: is it possible to get worse?
    Marpet: i’m good with him
    Center: pffff, meeeh @ 10 Mio per year ?!
    LT D.Smith = Dotson , maybe average, easy replaceable, could have had drafted many many better players instead of Smith back then, and time and time again

    but Suckaneers suck @ drafting.. and @ evaluating talent..

    so they even decided to throw alot of money @ Donovan Smith
    and thats one of the reasons why Buccaneers are in Cap Hell, even though they got sh.. itty Talented Roster..

    MLB’s have lower value, which means you can easily get an capable MLB per Draft or FreeAgency, while pass rushers come at premium cost (FreeAgency or generall high draft pick)

    this year – many great D-liner were available (Clemson guys, and EdOliver the DT the Suckaneers weren’t drafting, will be one heck of a player barring injurys..)

    and a good DT makes whole defense better (against the run and pass), thats why they have more value then MLB’s and this guy was a freaking sure shot of top talent, while our new MLB may have great Potential, and looks to be a okay or good player, the DT had more value >>> better prospect (pretty much best player available) and we only have/had VitaVea and McCoy as good DT’s..

    as all teams tend rotate a lot, you can be very happy to have 3 very good ones.. especially since injurys happen all the time and MCoy is nearing the End of his career…

    why is it that i can see it, but the guy getting lots of money to do it for are living is too stupid to realize all that?!

    year after year i complain about things like:

    getting rid of good players (Michael Bennett as Steve White always said he should have played more)
    Matt Bryant (one of the best Kickers in the NFL)

    and now some fans even want to cut McCoy
    (when he should easily still be worth at least a 2nd round pick)
    he is old but good – maybe not very good, thats debatetable, but he is way better than anything the Bucs have at DT besides VitaVea.. but Vea is a different type of player/DT..

    and they spend too much money on too weak players like Dotson, Donovan Smith, Jensen

    and in terms of drafting:

    very often, there is still good talents on the board, but the Suckaneers just seem to like lesser talent..

    year after year i say: draft this one if available, and the Suckaneers even get the oppertunity, but they decide to get another future Suckaneer and the player i wanted goes on to have good career…

    realy year after year the same BS..

    i am better than the whole “professional” Suckaneers Organisation @ evaluating talent..

    it’s laughable
    because i am an arm chair GM..

    fans should start to boykott this Clown-Show until the Glazers decide to sign an actual intelligent football mind that is able to evaluate talent and to build a good Roster/Team..

    this Suckaneer team is full of holes, is lacking talented players and it’s even in SallaryCapHell…
    what the hfreaking heck..

    Bucsfans, join the Fire-Licht-Tonight movement!
