NFL draft: Bucs' sixth-round picks under Dominik

2010, Pick No. 172

Brent Bowden, P

College: Virginia Tech

Years with Bucs: 0

Analysis: Bowden had a good senior year for the Hokies and was invited to the NFL scouting combine after averaging 43.6 yards per punt. He was released at the end of training camp. Bowden spent a few weeks with the Jaguars in 2011 but never caught on in the NFL. He played last season for the Virginia Destroyers of the United Football League.

2011, Pick No. 187

Allen Bradford, RB

College: Southern Cal

Years with Bucs: 1

Analysis: Bradford began his pro career as a running back and made the Bucs' roster out of training camp. But after limited success as a ball carrier, he wanted to switch to linebacker. The team released him in October, and he was claimed off waivers by the Seahawks and his former Southern Cal coach, Pete Carroll. He played in one game last season and did not record a tackle.

2012, Pick No. 174

Keith Tandy, S

College: West Virginia

Years with Bucs: 1

Analysis: Tandy was a roommate at West Virginia of linebacker Najee Goode, the Bucs' fifth-round pick in 2012. He has shown flexibility to play safety or cornerback and might be a vital part of the Bucs' special teams. Tandy was active for nine games and had three tackles last season.

  1. Blake Snell steps up, but Rays lose to Orioles anyway (w/video)

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — Blake Snell stepped up when he had to Monday and delivered an impressive career-high seven-plus innings for the Rays. That it wasn't enough in what ended up a 5-0 loss to the Orioles that was their season-high fifth straight is symptomatic of the mess they are in right now.

  3. Rays journal: Sergio Romo excited for fresh start in AL

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — RHP Sergio Romo was about to play catch with LHP Adam Kolarek before Monday's batting practice when he paused.

    RAMOS EXITS: Rays catcher Wilson Ramos clutches his head after being beaned by Ruben Tejada’s broken bat in the fifth inning. Ramos leaves the game and receives six staples to close a laceration on his head.

    The Heater

    LHP Blake Snell stepped up when the Rays needed him to — and perhaps when he had to to keep his job — working a season-high seven plus innings. And it wasn't only that he got deep into the game, but how he did so, using his fastball to pound the strike zone.

  5. Urban Meyer says the Big Ten is now the equal of the SEC


    CHICAGO — Ohio State coach Urban Meyer doesn't just believe the Big Ten has closed the gap with the more heralded SEC. He is convinced the race is a dead heat already.

    Ohio State’s Urban Meyer says the Big Ten East is as strong as the SEC East was when he coached UF to two national titles.
