Another potential target for the Bucs recently stopped in for a visit. This time, it was Alabama safety Minkah Fitzpatrick.
“It’s been a whole lot of fun,” Fitzpatrick said on the show. “I’ve been traveling visiting three different teams in Chicago, Tampa and San Francisco. Just talked to the coaches, the owners, and the [general managers]. Just answered their questions and got a feel for them. They got to know me a little bit better. I’m just enjoying the whole process. It’s been a lot of fun. It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity. I’m just taking it all in and doing what I can to enjoy it.”
The Alabama product sounds like he is focused on the next chapter in his life and humbled to accept whatever team selects him.
His draft stock may be sliding a bit. Several analysts — who once had him penciled in as a lock in the Top 10 — now see him potentially sliding down into the teens.
Regardless, Fitzpatrick’s outlook in the NFL is promising.
