The Tampa Bay Buccaneers held their rookie minicamp over the weekend, and a couple of youngsters that took the field could be counted on to play a significant role on offense as rookies.
The first, second-round pick Austin Seferian-Jenkins, didn't do much according to Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times:

The Buccaneers turned some heads when they drafted West Virginia tailback Charles Sims in the third round, and head coach Lovie Smith continued to talk up the youngster at camp according to The Times' Gary Shelton.
We felt like we had a good running back group. We just felt like Charles would bring something else. I'm talking about as a pass catcher out of the backfield. He has excellent hands, great quickness. He gives us a little more in the passing game than what we've had.
Smith, did, however, go on to say that Doug Martin's job as starter was not in question. "He's our starting tailback," the coach said. "He's on most of the billboards around here. He's an All-Pro running back."
