Buccaneers meeting with 2015 NFL draft prospects

New, comments

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are still meeting with prospects for the 2015 NFL draft, mostly with players who should be available after the first round.

Today, we have two new visits. Rice cornerback Bryce Callahan has a visit scheduled with the Bucs, according to Tony Pauline, and the Bucs have a worked out UCLA linebacker Eric Kendricks, per Chase Goodbread.

It's interesting that neither player fills a need for the Bucs. In fact, both play some of the stronger position on the team and would have almost no shot of breaking into the starting lineup as rookies for the Bucs. Kendricks is widely seen as one of the better linebackers in a weak draft at that position. The Bucs could probably pick him up at the top of the second round, but that would make the signing of Bruce Carter a little odd.

As for Callahan, I really can't find all that much on him. He's a small-school prospect who lacks size, but has a lot of athleticism. He may be well-suited to the slot, though Lance Zierlein thinks he'll struggle there. He's likely to be a late-round pick, so Callahan could round out the roster at cornerback.

Pauline also notes a few more connections over at Walter Football, including the Bucs meeting with Boston College center Andrew Gallik, Colorado State offensive tackle Tyler Sambrailo, Fresno State safety Derron Smith and Central Michigan receiver Titus Davis.
