Rookie Mini-Camp is hard to judge... No kidding

Word on the streets is the Bucs are having a hard time evaluating their weekend Rookie Mini-Camp. To me, it would be hard enough to watch 7 draftees plus several other undrafted players who have only one day of preparation and have never played together get on a football field and perform for several coaches. The Bucs thought it would be better to magnify that difficulty by inviting the following players on top of the ones already invited:

DE Tommy Blake TCU, DT Chris Bradwell Troy, DE Daniel Brooks Jackson State, K Art Carmody Louisville, T Jared Carnes USF, G Jackie Claude Florida State, LB Derrick Doggett Oregon State, WR Wes Doyle San Diego, CB Bryan Flowers Jacksonville, DE Vegas Franklin Miami, CB Byron Garvin Kansas State, RB Lavarius Giles Jackson State, K Chris Gould Virginia, T Floyd Headen West Texas State, WR Bruce Hocker Duquesne, S Anthony Houlis Florida State, WR Amari Jackson USF, CB Brandon Jackson Georgia Southern, S Kyle Jackson Florida, FB Langston Johnson Yale, LB Adam Kadela Northwestern, QB Sam Keller Nebraska, T Adam Kieft Central Michigan, TE Gerard Landry Southern, TE Jon Loyte Boston College, LB Ron McCullough Bethune-Cookman, LB Corey McKeon Nebraska, DT Tywain Miles Tarleton State, DT Alphonso Moran Kansas State, WR Derrick Richards Utah, C John Rochford Miami, CB Junior Rosegreen Auburn, LS Garrison Sanborn Florida State, G Pat Schwenke West Texas A&M, RB Clifton Smith Fresno State, LB Gian Villante Hofstra, OL Walter Walker USF, FB Stan White Ohio State

That list alone makes me dizzy, I couldnt imagine attempting to evaluate these guys in a 24 hour window. I wonder if QB John Johnson had a hand in WR Wes Doyle getting a look or maybe Doyle left an impression on the club while it was scouting Johnson... S Anthony Houlis is a good kid, but he was always injured at FSU, no way does he make the squad, the same goes for FSU's Jackie Claude... That's almost an entire roster made up of "Not-quite-Enoughs" up there... Good luck fellas
