Roy Cummings of The Tampa Tribune lists wide receiver Kevin Ogletree as one of five players to watch during the team's mandatory minicamp this week. Cummings writes that the Bucs are "very high" on Ogletree, and that he has "flashed a lot during offseason workouts." Ogletree is vying to become Tampa Bay's No. 3 wide receiver, behind Vincent Jackson and Mike Williams. But he will face competition from incumbent Tiquan Underwood and the inexperienced trio of Chris Owusu, David Douglas and Eric Page. The Bucs signed Ogletree to a two-year contract in March.
Somebody's been watching a lot of tape from the Cowboys' first game of the 2012 regular season. That fluky three-touchdown performance is the only reason I could think of as to why the Bucs would be legitimately excited about Ogletree. Unless their coaches are just spouting off hollow compliments about players to reporters, but that never happens with coaches, right? Even if Ogletree wins the No. 3 WR gig, he should be forgotten during fantasy drafts.
