It appears OLB Shaquil Barrett is having no trouble picking up this defense and so far has really impressed coaches.
According to Buccaneers.com, on a play at the line of scrimmage, Barrett got three to four feet in the air to get his hand on a pass. It has also been reported he has been moving well in individual drills and looks as though he’s very athletic.
The Bucs picked up Barrett in free agency from Denver, where he played behind OLBs Von Miller and Bradley Chubb. While in Denver he proved that when given the opportunity, he can put pressure on opposing QBs.
At 6’2″ and 260 lbs he can play any LB position, or he can put his hand in the dirt and rush the passer as a DE.
