Cornerback Depth a concern?


Well with all the information acquired from Thursday it’s no secret that we will probably be without “Hey Jude” until at least December, if not the entire year. Brent Grimes also went down but in less serious fashion and should be back to do battle week 1 against the Miami Dolphins.

But I have to ask, with the Injury to Jude who do we have outside of Vernon and Brent? Javion Elliot is the first to come to mind and although he has impressed in training camp and played in six games well last season, he lacks in game experience. He had some action late in the 2016 season, but not nearly enough to base judgment off of.

Maurice Fleming is another young Buc we have down the Cornerback depth and is faced with the same problem as Elliot. Lack of experience. Robert McClain, on the other hand, has plenty of experience and will help our young guys in Grimes absence. Now I don’t think depth is something to worry about right now but could be a huge factor in our success down the road. That being said Buccaneer football is finally back and it couldn’t come at a better time. LETS GO BUCS
