Check out our best videos of Bucs at training camp

If you follow our Bucs coverage on Twitter, you know we've taken advantage of open practices in training camp to post a ton of short video clips of Jameis Winston and the rest of the team. If you don't follow us on Twitter -- and exactly why not? -- you can catch up on things today.

Practice has been a busy routine of recording video and then deciding whether to post -- potentially missing the next play -- or record the next. Apologies to everyone who's politely offered up a "down in front" at times. Here are our picks for the best Bucs videos of training camp. As the season begins, the media get less access to practice, so clips like this will be harder to come by.

-- Jameis Winston hits receiver Robert Herron on a comeback route. Herron's hands limited him during his rookie year, but he's shown improvement there, and will need that to keep a spot on the roster against a slew of talented rookies.

-- Winston-to-Evans is something you'll likely hear a lot this season. Here's a throw down the middle from one first-rounder to another.

-- Lovie Smith has a "thud" policy in full-pads practice: blocking at the line of scrimmage is live, but as a general rule, defensive players don't take running backs and receivers to the ground. Linebacker Danny Lansanah had a little extra contact with Bobby Rainey on the first day in full pads:

-- One new addition at Bucs practice has been music throughout practice -- a different playlist every day, it seems. So you get Michael Jackson's "P.Y.T." in background as Mike Glennon hits undrafted rookie Adam Humphries here:

-- We've definitely seen more of a screen game in practice under new offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter. Here's a nice screen from Winston to running back Charles Sims:

-- Probably don't do enough of this, but here's a snippet of post-practice interview with Winston. Yes, that's Rick Stroud in shades obscured on the left ...

-- More Winston, here throwing in traffic to Kenny Bell, unfazed by Def Leppard's "Pour Some Sugar on Me" in background on what was an 80s day for music.

-- Always cool to see the extra drills players will do after practice -- every day, undrafted rookie Donteea Dye lays on his back and catches passes. OBJ does this, too.

-- We only have access from one side of the practice field, so of course, the coolest plays are inevitably on the far side, like this Winston interception by a leaping Johnthan Banks.

-- Winston has built a good connection with second-year TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins, who goes up for this catch and holds on in red-zone drills.

-- I tend to shoot more offense in practice because the lack of tackling makes hit harder for defensive play to pop out. I like the sound of defensive linemen hitting the pads, like here with defensive tackle Henry Melton:

I always like that with defensive line drills, you can hear as well as see. Here's Bucs' Henry Melton. pic.twitter.com/zGGc7m50KW

-- Doug Martin doesn't slow down in practice in the open field -- constantly find myself having to work to keep him in the frame as he pulls away on practice runs.

-- Bucs LB Danny Lansanah had two pick-sixes last season, and he goes up high to pick off this Winston pass:

-- Another interview clip, with Bucs coach Lovie Smith talking after practice. He usually takes questions inside One Buc, so cool to get him with the practice fields behind him.

-- Really like this clip of a Charles Sims run -- if you look closely, you'll see right guard Ali Marpet come around and pull left and take Lavonte David completely out of the play.

-- I like the give and take between RBs and defense in practice -- Bobby Rainey has a funny stop-start at the end of this run:

-- Rain video! From the front of the bleachers where the media can record, there's rain coming off the canopy above, so you get big raindrops nearby and rain in distance for cool look:

-- Really like this clip, not only for LB Kwon Alexander stripping the ball to force a fumble, but the way the QB in non-contact orange jersey tries to jump on the loose ball.

-- There's a great mutual respect you can pick up on sometimes -- Bobby Rainey holds off Kwon Alexander in a pass-rush drill, and there's a simultaneous pat on the helmet and pat on the butt at the end.

-- One of those "coming right at you" clips with Winston hitting UCF's Rannell Hall.

-- One last one: End-zone view as Winston hits TE Brandon Myers for touchdown.
