Draft season gets underway
In a few days, the NFL will release it's list of draft candidates, including underclassmen.
But draft season is already underway, and the Bucs will begin whittling down candidates while scouting this week's East-West Shrine Game in Houston.
Among the dozens players the Bucs and other NFL teams will scrutinize during this week's practices are USC CB Terrell Thomas, LSU QB Matt Flynn and Boston College OLB Jolonn Dunbar.
Next week, the scouting and personnel departments are off to Mobile, Ala. for the Senior Bowl, which has a better crop of players than does this week's game. I'll be there starting Monday to bring you some of the happenings.
