Cappa Could Start This Season1 min read
When the Bucs drafted Alex Cappa in the 3rd round of the 2018 draft, they thought they were getting their new starting RG. As it turns out Cappa was more of a project. At small Humboldt state 6’6 and 305lbs Cappa was a man amongst boys, but the competition in the NFL is a whole new ball game.
Cappa does play with a chip on his shoulder. He is a better run blocker than a pass blocker, but he has a nasty streak which should help him adjust to the NFL. He is a great athlete for his size with loose hips and can be extremely flexible. He has power in his legs that help him bullrush D linemen. All of these traits show he has the skill set to become a great guard in the NFL. Ultimately it’s up to Bruce Arians. If Cappa can adjust to playing at this level, then you can expect him to be a mainstay at RG.
