Dirk Koetter comments on the fight at Monday’s practice

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will be traveling to Nashville Tampa Bay Buccaneers Hoodie , Tennessee tomorrow as they prepare for their second preseason game. Before the game on Saturday, the Buccaneers and Titans will have two joint practices on Wednesday and Thursday. Joint practices can be really beneficial to teams in many different ways. Not only does it get the guys more fired up and create competition, but it also allows you to see how you stack up against another team and not just yourself. It allows the players on both sides to also see some different looks on a daily basis, which will help in many of the young players development. Dirk Koetter called Monday’s practice one of the best practices of training camp thus far. Although it was a high energy practice, a fight did break out at the end, but Koetter wasn’t overly concerned. “Yeah, we had a fight. Big deal. I mean, it’s football. That was one of our best practices of the year right there. It just didn’t end on a positive note from the fight standpoint, but you’re dreaming if you think that stuff’s not going to happen in football,” Koetter said. “I don’t think twice about that. It’s over and what happened, happened. It’s going to happen again sometime. That’s just the way it is.”Dirk Koetter might not have to wait long for another training camp scuffle. Usually when two teams get together for joint practices, a fight is bound to break out. We saw it yesterday with the Jets and Redskins and we may very well see it again this week with the Bucs and Titans. With that being said, both coaches have created guidelines for this weeks practices in hopes of preventing any major scuffles. “Yeah, we have a whole list of them. Coach Vrabel and I have talked about them just like Marrone and I did last year. You know when you’ve got 180 guys on two fields, their tempers are going to flair,” Koetter said. “These guys are competing against each other. They’re competing for jobs.” Koetter was asked if he has any message to the players after today’s fight and his answer was short and to the point. “Yes. Don’t fight.”Of course, there is always a risk of injury when a big scuffle breaks out and I think that’s what is most concerning to coaches around the league. You would hate to see a player tear an ACL or fracture a hand because of a fight. As long as scuffles remain minor Customized Tampa Bay Buccaneers Jerseys , I wouldn’t mind seeing one or two up in Tennessee this week. The first round of the NFL draft ended with a few players still left in the green room at AT&T Stadium, including an All-AmericanHeading into the second round of the draft Iowa All-America cornerback Josh Jackson, Texas offensive lineman Connor Williams and LSU running Derrius Guice remain available. All three are safe bets to be selected some time Friday, when rounds two and three are completed. It probably won't take too long.The NFL also invited UCF's Shaquem Griffin to the draft. It was no surprise the linebacker who lost his left hand to amputation as a child did not go in round one. He is one of the draft's biggest wild cards after putting on a show at the combine. It would not be shocking if a team called Griffin on Day 2.Six more intriguing players likely to come off the board Friday:Mason Rudolph, QB, 6-foot-5, 235 pounds, Oklahoma StateThere was some talk that Rudolph could slip into the first round and make it a record tying six quarterbacks taken. Instead, he'll look to become the first selected on Day 2. He could be a nice value. Rudolph is a big guy, with a good arm who throws a nice deep ball. The Giants own the second pick of the second round. Maybe he's the guy they can groom to take over for Eli Manning. Denver at 40 could be a possibility along with Miami (42) and New England (43).Will Hernandez, OG, 6-2, 345, UTEPSix offensive linemen were taken in the first round, including two centers that could play guard and a tackle that could slide inside. Nobody bit on Hernandez, a powerful run blocker with quick feet. With Cleveland and the Bears among the first to pick in the second round, Hernandez should not have to wait too long to be picked. He might be the best offensive lineman left , though Iowa center James Daniels could be in that discussion, too.Harold Landry, OLB/DE, 6-3, 252, Boston CollegeLandry was one of the best pass rushers in the country as a junior, but his senior year was wrecked by injuries. He might have to learn a more traditional linebacker's role in the NFL after mostly playing as a defensive end at BC. But he is the best edge rusher left so he probably won't have wait long into second round. The Colts at 36 and 37 could use a boost to the pass rush, but will he fit their new 4-3 defense? The Giants need pass rushers, too. A similar player to watch for is LSU's Arden Key, who was being talked about as a possible top-10 pick before he had a poor and injury plagued 2017 season.Ronald Jones II, RB, 5-11, 200, Southern CaliforniaThe darting, slashing runner who always seems to fall forward. Jones is similar to Guice in style but not quite as big and strong. Georgia's Nick Chubb is also still available after three running backs (Saquon Barkley, Rashaad Penny and Sony Michel) went in the first round. Jones, Guice and Chubb could all be up for consideration for Cleveland (picks 33 and 35) and Tampa Bay (38) early in the second round. All should be off the gone by the end of round two and provide good value.Maurice Hurst Tampa Bay Buccaneers T-Shirt , DT, 6-2, 282, MichiganHurst is an undersized tackle with some health concerns, but he was probably the most productive interior defensive lineman in the country last season. Scheme fit will likely be key, but defenses that need tackles who attack gaps and look to be disruptive in the backfield could find a day two steal in Hurst.Christian Kirk, WR, 5-10, 200, Texas A&MOnly two receivers were selected in the first round (Calvin Ridley and DJ Moore). Next up could be Kirk, who also brings with him some serious skills as a kick and punt returner. He returned seven punts and kicks for touchdowns at A&M. His size might relegate him to slot receiver. If a team is looking for a bigger target, SMU's Courtland Sutton, who is 6-5, is also left.
