The Buccaneers improved their preseason record to 2-0 on Saturday night Cheap Mike Evans Jersey , beating the Titans in Tennessee by a score of 30-14. After a mostly positive performance by the rookie class in last week’s preseason opener, there was a little bit more disappointment in week two. More of that disappointment came from injuries rather than poor play, but it was still frustrating to see.As far as what happened on the field, the Bucs should feel pretty good about the progress of the 2018 class. As we’ll continue to do throughout the season, let’s take a deeper look at what we saw from the rookies that took the field on Saturday night.CB M.J. Stewart The trio of rookies in the Buccaneer secondary made up one big bright spot last week in Miami. However, of the three, M.J. Stewart was the only one without a big play. He played well, but Carlton Davis and Jordan Whitehead got a lot of the attention. Stewart responded in a big way this week, coming through with some splash plays of his own. He forced two fumbles, with the second being recovered by Lavonte David to set up a Tampa Bay scoring drive:Stewart later left the game with a foot injury and didn’t return. It might have been precautionary, as he was initially listed as questionable to return. The trainers and/or coaching staff could have determined that it wasn’t worth testing in the preseason, so he spent the rest of the night on the sideline. Still, it’s a situation worth keeping an eye on considering the recent injuries in the rest of the secondary. WR Justin WatsonFifth round pick Justin Watson caught all three of his targets for 30 yards in last week’s game, which made for a nice debut. He took things to another level on Saturday, catching four of his five targets for 54 yards and his first career preseason touchdown. The score came late in the first half in a third-and-long situation: That was an excellent throw by Jameis Winston, but also fantastic work by Watson to secure the ball, keep his feet in bounds and complete the catch. Over his first two NFL preseason games http://www.officialbuccaneersfootballstore.com/jameis-winston-jersey-cheap , he has definitely looked worthy of a spot on the 53-man roster. With his main competition, Bobo Wilson, out for Saturday’s game, Watson might have gained the upper hand for the No. 5 receiver role.RBs Ronald Jones II and Shaun WilsonIt was another quiet week for second round pick Ronald Jones. He only got four carries on the night and turned those into two yards. He got a few snaps with the majority of the first-team offensive line, but couldn’t find much running room. Jones’ slow development probably isn’t worth an all-out panic, but there has to be at least some concern halfway through the preseason. He has looked hesitant, perhaps indicating a lack of confidence.After being acknowledged as the starting running back this week, Peyton Barber further separated himself from Jones this week. He rushed for 32 yards on six carries (a nice 5.3 yards per carry). Jones obviously isn’t in danger of missing the roster, but his play in the first two weeks of the preseason hasn’t inspired any excitement whatsoever. Shaun Wilson, who was an undrafted addition this offseason, missed last week’s game with an injury. Following weeks of impressive practices, he made his highly-anticipated debut on Saturday night. He ran five times for 17 yards and showed a nice burst on his lone kick return opportunity, going for 26 yards. On the Tampa Bay broadcast, former Buc Ronde Barber spoke highly of Wilson and noted how the coaches have been “enamored” with him. His first game action went well, which helps his chances of sneaking onto the roster. Charles Sims, one of the backs he is competing with, went down with an injury on the opening kickoff. However http://www.officialbuccaneersfootballstore.com/mike-evans-jersey-cheap , Dare Ogunbowale has cemented himself as another hurdle for Wilson to jump.The best of the restSergio Bailey, who shined late in last week’s game, caught a 21-yard touchdown pass from Ryan Griffin in the fourth quarter. With as much depth as the Bucs have at wide receiver, he won’t make the roster. However, he has quickly become a deserving candidate for a spot on the practice squad... Third-rounder Alex Cappa continued to ease his way into the offensive line. He took some snaps with the first-teamers while Caleb Benenoch sat out for a few plays... Quarterback Austin Allen, an undrafted rookie out of Arkansas, saw his first NFL action in the fourth quarter. He finished two-of-two for 18 yards... Jordan Whitehead, who emerged very quickly last week, was quiet in limited action this week. He left the game with a shoulder injury, adding to the injury woes plaguing the rookie class... Vita Vea, Carlton Davis, Cole Boozer and Shaheed Salmon were all out with injuries. Just call the New England Patriots the University of Georgia north.The Patriots used their two first-round picks in the NFL draft to plug a hole on their offensive line and to bolster their depth at running back.They selected 6-2, 302-pound offensive lineman Isaiah Wynn out of Georgia with the 23rd overall pick on Thursday night. They then chose 5-foot-11, 215-pound Georgia running back Sony Michel 31st overall pick. New England has a total of five selections in the first 95 picks.They were just some of several needs for the AFC champions following the departure of a handful of starters in free agency.Wynn started his college career as a guard but shifted to left tackle as a senior, earning second-team AP All-America honors in 2017. But he said he's open to playing anywhere on the offensive line at the next level."It doesn't matter where the Patriots put me, I'm ready to contribute any way I can," Wynn said.Michel was a dual threat for the Bulldogs http://www.authenticstampabaybuccaneers.com/cheap-vinny-curry-jersey , rushing for 1,227 yards and 16 touchdowns as a senior in 2017. He averaged 7.9 yards per carry and also had a receiving touchdown. He was one of three running backs taken in first round, joining Saquon Barkley (No. 2 to Giants) and Rashaad Penny (No. 27 to Seattle).Wynn and Michel join a New England roster that already features two Georgia alums — starting center David Andrews and receiver Malcolm Mitchell.Patriots director of player personnel Nick Caserio said there was no hesitation in selecting a running back in the first round. New England hasn't used a first-round pick on running back since taking Laurence Maroney with the 21st overall pick in 2006. The Patriots lost running back Dion Lewis to Tennessee in free agency."Our thing is pick good football players that have good traits. However they get here, they get here," Caserio said. "There's no template of how you put it together."Michel does enter the league with some baggage. He has a knee condition that concerned some executives heading into the draft process. He also had 12 career fumbles at Georgia.Michel said simply that "I'm healthy," when asked about his knee.Wynn is recovering from tearing the labrum in his shoulder back in November. He had surgery on it in January and said he's "right on track for recovery." He expects to be ready for mini-camp in June.He said the fumble issue is something he plans to correct."It's all about being aware of how I carry the football," he said. "Ball placement. It's something I should focus on and work on."Wynn would seem to be undersized as a tackle at the NFL level, though he could be an option to replace left tackle Nate Solder, who signed with the New York Giants.Patriots starting right guard Shaq Mason is also entering the final year of his rookie contract and will become an unrestricted free agent following the upcoming season. With Mason expected to garner a lot of interest in the free agency market in 2019, this could be a pre-emptive move on the part of Bill Belichick to get someone in the pipeline now.The Patriots have started rookies up front before — left guard Joe Thuney started 16 games in his first year in 2016.Wynn's selection was part of a run on offensive linemen in the first round Thursday night. Six linemen were selected before the first wide receiver — Maryland's D.J. Moore — came off the board at No. 24.New England still has needs on defense, including linebacker, defensive end and cornerback. The Patriots are also in the market for a quarterback to develop behind 40-year-old Tom Brady.They had a chance to get former Alabama linebacker Rashaan Evans, who visited the Patriots facility during the pre-draft process.But they were undercut by the Titans and its new head coach and former Patriots linebacker Mike Vrabel, who selected Evans with the 22nd pick it acquired from Baltimore.Caserio insisted they didn't feel slighted by the move."(Titans general manager) Jon (Robinson) and Mike did what they thought was best for their team," he said. "But we didn't like throw any pens against the wall."
