1 min read

The Bucs went from being extremely thin at safety last season to having a plethora of them this year. The signings of Deone Bucannon and Kentrell Brice as well as DB M.J. Stewart switching to the safety position, the Bucs will use many different combinations to try to fool defenses.

In their base defense, the starters will most likely be Justin Evans and possibly Jordan Whitehead, who both are athletic safeties that can still help against the run. On third and short, expect them to go with Evans and Bucannon seeing as they both are excellent run stuffers as well.

Fans will also see some 3-3-5 defensive formation and have three safeties on the field at once to either help in coverage or blitz. Sometimes you may even see four or more safeties on the field at once. In Todd Bowles defense you never know where the blitz is coming from.

Also, expect Kentrell Brice to get a nice look in training camp. His 4.4 speed and 40-inch vert are very impressive.
