Austin Seferian-Jenkins says Monday's practice was his worst



TAMPA - As TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins draws strong reviews from coaches, the second-round pick has been hard on himself. He called Monday’s practice his worst as a Buc.

“I didn’t come here to just be good,” Seferian-Jenkins said.

The 6-foot-5, 260-pound rookie looks like a strong receiver but felt that his biggest problem came with blocking. Seferian-Jenkins said he understands the offense and his assignments well, but his footwork has faltered at times because he’s too eager for contact.

“You’re just so revved up on hitting that guy, you forget the most important thing,” Seferian-Jenkins said. “Your feet.”
