Bucs expect WRs to show separation during training camp



Here's a news flash: The Bucs don't have a No. 1 receiver.

Really, that's not a secret. But how much of a problem is it? Receivers coach Eric Yarber says it's not a problem at all. In fact, that's about what he expected at this point in the offseason. The receivers are currently one big pack that he expects will separate come training camp.

"It’s a little too early to say," he said. "But there’s a lot of competition out there. I feel good about all the guys. We could go out and play a preseason game and compete right now. Right now, the competition is virtually even. You have guys coming out who might shine sometimes a little more than other guys, but it’s even right now."

And though today is the final day of minicamp, the depth chart won't start to matter for a while still.

"Right now we just need an idea of the hierarchy," Yarber said. "And we have an idea of what we’re going to have going into camp. Camp is where they’re going to separate themselves. Not here."
