Kary Vincent Jr. Says He’s In Daily Contact With Devin White, Talked To Bucs

April 4th, 2021

LSU corner Kary Vincent, Jr.

Scanning the globe for all things Bucs, Joe found a nugget while reading The News out of Port Arthur, Texas.

Former LSU star cornerback Kary Vincent, Jr. says he speaks “day in and day out” with Bucs savior linebacker Devin White about staying focused as he enters the NFL Draft later this month.

Per The News, Vincent said he has talked to several NFL teams, including Tampa Bay and Buffalo. This year, “talking to” a team is more significant because the NFL Scouting Combine was cancelled. And that’s where teams meet with every player.

Vincent sat out last season because of The Sickness but was a strong slot cornerback for the national champs during the 2019 college season. The elite sprinter is a special and versatile athlete, but he’s not Day 1 or Day 2 draft-pick material. He’s widely considered in need of refinement, and the Bucs are in position to be patient and develop him.

Of course, LSU cornerbacks have had loads of NFL success, and a blessing from White, Joe believes, would carry at least a little weight at One Buc Palace.

Some say Vincent also could be a free safety, but Joe’s wondering if his elite speed could be turned into a unique weapon on special teams and in blitzing. It wasn’t the case last year, but typically a Todd Bowles defense brings lots of blitzes from the nickel position.

Joe could see the Bucs jumping on Vincent at the end of Round 5 or 6.

    I don’t want anyone that sat out for the sickness.
    I don’t even want them if they’re currently on the team and seriously considering sitting out because of the sickness.

    They’re pu__ies.

    It’s the red flag.

  2. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Maybe he loved his Grandmother & sat out to protect her…..

  3. SCBucsFan Says:

    Once again Dooosh I’m happy you aren’t a GM and spend your time asking people to supersize their meals

  4. DoooshLaRue Says:

    We stopped Supersizing meals at my McDonalds over 15 years ago.
    Jeez…… try to stay up to date.

  5. sauron's eye Says:

    Well we didn’t know much about Covid when those decisions were made. I can’t fault players for it, they may had circumstances we don’t know about. Sitting out a year does not help anyones football readiness, besides Gronk.

  6. Swampbuc Says:

    I would love him as a day3 pick or UDFA

  7. Tampabay Allday Says:

    Carlton Davis just said the dumbest thing at the worst possible time. SMH

  8. windbaggery Says:

    I thought Joe didn’t wanna hear about developing players.

  9. Joe Says:

    I thought Joe didn’t wanna hear about developing players.

    Remember, there are two Joes.

  10. firethecannons Says:

    let me guess he is 5’9” and runs a 4.65 40.

  11. David Says:

    Dooooooosh is being a douche bag.
    Others are suggesting we should not get anyone to develop.
    Almost everyone from the 4/5 – 7th round is developmental. Rarely do they come in and see any kind of playing time other than special teams.. It’s about depth at a position that just lost their depth and a good special-teams player in Ryan Smith.

  12. Coburn Says:

    I almost feel the opposite as doosh. Shows maturity. If you get covid it could ruin a grsat career before he even gets started. A little bit of lung scarring in an ultra competitive league could make all the difference.

  13. Stanglassman Says:

    It does show maturity but it also could show that they are thinking about more than just themselves too. More of a team player than a me player.

  14. mark2001 Says:

    Stan..yes…his football season and team weren’t more important than risking their lives and those of their loved ones. Who would want a player that doesn’t put football above the lives of their family?

    They are like the people that wouldn’t follow CDC instructions for mask wearing and social distancing…me and mine players rather than America’s team players as citizens that give a darn about the lives of other team members and their loved ones. Who would want them on your team, or in your country in the middle of a pandemic?

    Just glad Bucs players said and felt they didn’t want to be the one guy to give Brady or Arians Covid. So they were careful. That is team playing,

  15. DoooshLaRue Says:


    Justin Fields getting called out by Dan O about his lack of work ethic and the OSU HC responded thusly about Fields not wanting to sit out the sickness/cancel the season:

    “He petitions to have a season. He put together this petition that the Big Ten athletes all signed saying that they want to play, but they want to play safely and that they don’t accept canceling the season. It was all led by Justin Fields. Where was everybody else? Where were the guys who were opting out then? You know, you don’t love the game if you’re doing something like that. This kid loves the game.

    But yeah, my take is BS.

    You sissies just don’t get it.

    It’s football.

    If you love the game YOU PLAY.

  16. Hodad Says:

    Makes sense. Licht likes LSU players, and so do I. They’re always talented.

  17. DoooshLaRue Says:

    Oh yeah, LSU players are always talented…..

    Mettenberger and Claiborne are NFL stars now,

  18. Ben green Says:

    Close your eyes and start throwing darts at players past the 3rd round. The draft is a complete crapshoot anyway. Nobody really knows how these kids will play as pros. I don’t think this kid will get drafted. it’s a very weak corner draft. Brady’s former coach drafted him in the 6th round. Every single one of those war rooms passed on TB12 6 times, so how much do they really know. My summation is not very much

  19. Duane Says:

    Hard to get excited for the draft when your team brings back a stacked roster that just won the SB. It is a HUGE ask to expect Licht to find two starters like he did last year, but for some reason I think him and his scouts are going to find us a few more solid contributors this season. In a perfect world they draft linemen on both sides of the ball. I do not buy into the Developmental narrative at all with this team. I dont think its feasible to collect a whole roster of veterans. You have your starters, the depth always has to come from inexperienced, unproven players, or they would be the starters. The best teams are able to churn and develop the bottom of their rosters. Go Bucs!

  20. mark2001 Says:

    Duane…what I think we will really be feeling is the new experience of drafting so late in the evening, that it will almost be the following morning.

  21. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    Doosh you are on a roll; do not forget the greatest player ever to come out of LSU. jamarcus russel

  22. SlyPirate Says:

    Covid was new territory in sports.

    At the beginning of the season, healthcare professionals told athletes they may suffer long-term, career-limiting damage if they caught C19.

    Don’t judge athletes for sitting out. Hindsight is 20/20.
