The first three days of Bucs training camp are in the books and the team is preparing to have its first day in full pads on Monday before getting Tuesday off. Here are my observations and insights thus far. I’ll be sharing my thoughts on Monday’s practice – along with those of Mark Cook and Trevor Sikkema – on Tuesday on PewterReport.com in the next Pewter Nation Podcast.
Bucs rookie wide receiver, Chris Godwin, the team’s third-round pick, has actually out-shined tight end O.J. Howard, Tampa Bay’s first-round pick, through the first three days of training camp – that’s saying something because Howard is off to a great start. Godwin has primarily been used outside at flanker with the second team and also the first team when DeSean Jackson replaces Adam Humphries in the slot, but, on Sunday, Godwin took a rep or two inside and made a nice catch across the middle. He has tremendous body control and great hands, and looks bigger than his 6-foot-1, 205-pound measurable on the Bucs roster.
