Undrafted free agent signings: Buccaneers add Deveron Carr, Rashaan Melvin and 11 others

Mike DiNovo-US PRESSWIRE

Deveron Carr and Rashaan Melvin headline the Bucs' class of undrafted free agents.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have announced the addition of thirteen undrafted free agents to round out their roster. We had already documented the addition of most of those players earlier, but the undrafted list still contains a few surprises. Here's the full list, courtesy of Buccaneers.com.

A few intriguing players find themselves on that list. Northern Illinois cornerback Rashaan Melvin has excellent size to be a quality press-man cornerback, but was inconsistent at best in college. He may be an intriguing developmental player. Deveron Carr out of Arizona State is more likely to stick on the roster, though: he is (so far) one of two undrafted free agents with $20,000 in guaranteed money, per Corry Joel. Obviously the Bucs value him quite highly.

Willie Moseley is interesting, as he played alongside Bucs fifth-round pick Steven Means at Buffalo as a pass-rushing linebacker in a 3-4. WR D.J. Monroe may be worth a look as a kick returner, with three career kickoff returns for touchdowns at Texas. Tim Wright and Jerry Johnson, meanwhile, add some really good size to the Bucs' group of wide receivers.

The Bucs will also bring a number of tryout players to their rookie minicamp this upcoming weekend, including Boise State cornerback Jerrell Gavins. We may see a number of the players previously reported to have signed with the Buccaneers instead show up as a tryout player this weekend.
