Eight USF Bulls work out for Tampa Bay Buccaneers

The NFL Draft is now only 17 days away, and Monday morning was a busy one for the USF Bulls' draft hopefuls, with Bulls working out for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at One Buc Place, according to defensive back Mistral Raymond.

Raymond went through position drills with the Bucs, as did much of USF's senior class -- receiver Dontavia Bogan, defensive ends Craig Marshall and David Bedford, running back Mo Plancher, tight end Kevin Gidrey, tackle Jake Sims and center Sampson Genus. Raymond said the Bulls were part of a group of about 16 players, including other Tampa area graduates, like Miami linebacker Colin McCarthy, West Virginia receiver Jock Sanders, Central Florida receiver Jamar Newsome and former South Carolina reciever O.J. Murdock.

Raymond has had a busy past week, having worked out for the Vikings on Tuesday and Wednesday and the Bears on Thursday and Friday -- Chicago also had linebacker Jacquian Williams in town at the same time. For many of Monday's group, this was their first NFL team workout -- Gidrey flew in from Virginia for the workout and now will continue training in North Carolina for the draft.
