While next April's draft is a long time from now, it never hurts to check in on future NFL stars…
Who to keep an eye on Saturday?
Keenan McCardell is unlikely to play so that leaves room for another receiver to make plays. Jacquez Green will likely see some work with the first team. Expect Green to also field a few punt returns as well. If there is one position the Bucs have good depth it's the wide receiver position. McCardell, Keyshawn Johnson and Joe Jurevicius aren't going anywhere but who will be the fourth and fifth wide receivers? Those roster sports could be determined on Saturday. Let's not forget Karl Williams who always seems to come up with a big play or two to ensure a place on the team. Williams has been consistent in the return game as well. Veteran Reggie Barlow will also see extended action. Barlow has some very productive years under his belt and has great speed as well as veteran savvy.
Corey Ivy is another player to watch against the Jets. He will be replacing hampered cornerback Ronde Barber who is nursing a surgically repaired right knee. Ivy also makes valuable contributions on special teams but with a good effort can make a bid to become the extra defensive back on the field when the Bucs use a nickel defense.
