Sperbeck stand out at Bucs rookie mini-camp

Former Boise State standouts Thomas Sperbeck and Jonathan Moxey each stood out during their debut weekend in the NFL, as least according to one reporter.

Scott Reynolds of PewterReport.com described Day 2 of Tampa Bay’s rookie mini-cap as a “Boise State football kind of day,” adding that, “both Sperbeck and Moxey are showing their stuff.”

Reynolds tweeted a video of Moxey running stride-for-stride with fourth-year NFL veteran Josh Huff during 1-on-1 drills. In the video you can see Moxey make a play on the ball and knock the pass to the ground.

Reynolds then later pointed out that: “Thomas Sperbeck is having a very nice day.”

In another video posted on Twitter by Reynolds, you can see Sperbeck haul in an errant pass attempt using mostly one hand.

Both Sperbeck and Moxey signed with Tampa Bay as undrafted free agents, meaning they are currently a part of the Buccaneers’ 90-man roster.

-Sperbeck is one of two undrafted free-agents in rookie mini-camp with the Buccaneers. The other is Jesus “Bobo” Wilson from Florida State.

College Stats
Bobo Wilson
Career: 133 REC, 1,562 YDS, 8 TD
Best season (JR, 2015): 58 REC, 622 YDS, 3 TD

Thomas Sperbeck
Career: 224 REC, 3,601 YDS, 20 TD
Best season (JR, 2015): 88 REC, 1,412 YDS, 8 TD

Although Sperbeck posted far better numbers in college, it is worth noting that Wilson played with Buccaneers starting quarterback Jameis Winston at Florida State.
Sperbeck and Wilson are two of 11 receivers currently listed on the 90-man roster.

NOTE: The Buccaneers kept five wide receivers on their roster following final cuts last season.

– Moxey is one of three undrafted free agents the Buccaneers signed at cornerback; Iowa alumnus Greg Mabin and West Virginia alumnus Maurice Fleming are the other two.

-Of the nine total cornerbacks currently on the 90-man roster, both veteran Brent Grimes and second-year standout Vernon Hargreaves are the front runners. Former Viking Josh Robinson has significant experience, but outside of those three, the competition appears to be pretty wide open. Moxey, who returned punts during rookie mini-camp, could help himself by proving he can contribute on special teams as well.
