At least 20 due in for Bucs' local predraft workout



Each NFL team gets 30 private workouts at their own facility before the draft, but they also get one local workout for players with local ties. The Bucs have theirs on Friday, less than two weeks before the NFL draft, and we've identified 20 draft prospects confirmed to be attending.

Seven played in college at USF -- QB Steven Bench, OL Thor Jozwiak, OL Brynjar Gudmundsson, TE Sean Price, DE Eric Lee, S Jamie Byrd and P Mattias Ciabatti. There could be others from USF, but that's all we've been able to confirm.

Here are 13 other players who played locally in high school and will be attending the local workout. Most will end up as undrafted free agents, but a handful, such as WR Geronimo Allison, are expected to be drafted. We'll add more names as we confirm them.

Geronimo Allison, WR, Spoto, Illinois

Marqus Baker, CB, Robinson, Buffalo

Anthony Brown, CB, Hillsborough, Purdue

Allen Covington, DL, Armwood, Toledo

Devante Danzey, OL, Tampa Bay Tech, Auburn

Phillip Ely, QB, Plant, Alabama/Toledo

Ruben Gonzalez, WR, Robinson, USF/Jacksonville State

Anthony Harrell, LB, Jesuit, Georgia Tech/Florida

Tyriq McCord, LB, Jefferson, Miami

Chris Moore, WR, Jefferson, Cincinnati

Denzel Thompson, DB,  Countryside,  Southeastern Louisiana

Frankie Williams, CB, Robinson, Purdue
