2011 NFL Mock Draft: Buccaneers Work Out 8 Former USF Bulls

Picking local talent in the NFL Draft is not nearly as prevalent as it used to be because advancements in technology have allowed greater recognition of prospects from all around the Country. But there is still something to be said for an NFL team taking a local guy that they have had the most opportunity to watch and scout. According to Greg Auman of TampaBay.com, the Bucs held a workout for 8 former members of the USF football team.

(Defensive back Mistral) Raymond went through position drills with the Bucs, as did much of USF's senior class -- receiver Dontavia Bogan, defensive ends Craig Marshall and David Bedford, running back Mo Plancher, tight end Kevin Gidrey, tackle Jake Sims and center Sampson Genus. Raymond said the Bulls were part of a group of about 16 players, including other Tampa area graduates, like Miami linebacker Colin McCarthy, West Virginia receiver Jock Sanders, Central Florida receiver Jamar Newsome and former South Carolina reciever O.J. Murdock.

The Draft is just a couple weeks away and the Bucs are probably starting to crystallize their Draft Board. Big workouts with a handful of prospects will give the team an opportunity to see how prospects stack up when compared to some of the other prospects at their position.
