The NFL Scouting Combine is the great equalizer of the offseason. While the bulk of scouting of NFL prospects comes during the season and in actual play, the combine provides standardized testing of NFL players.
While many of the top prospects are only trying to further impress NFL teams with their combine preparation and performances, many of the lesser known players will be trying to make impressions or disprove negative outlooks on their abilities.
Some of the small-school prospects will need to prove that their physical abilities can compare to their big-conference counterparts.
Like every other team, the Bucs will be scrutinizing certain players at the combine. The Bucs will have scouted the players' actual game performances already and will use the combine as a method of comparison for certain skills and abilities.
Here are the targets, sleepers and prospects to watch that the Bucs need to monitor at this year's combine.
