While it was assumed a talent of Sean Tucker's caliber could make the roster if healthy, climbing the depth chart to plant himself as the main backup to Rachaad White was impressive. Going from undrafted to RB2 means a lot to the rookie runner.
“I just want to showcase my talents and provide whatever I can to the team,” Tucker said. “I want to help us win going into the season and just making the 53 (man roster) is a dream come true and is somewhere I’ve always wanted to be.”
Tucker's story is a great one. At one time he was primed to be a Day 2 pick in the NFL Draft, but ended up not even getting drafted. He signed with the Bucs after the draft and from there climbed the depth chart and beat out veterans Edmonds and Vaughn. Tucker ran for 81 yards on 23 carries, adding 22 yards on five receptions. He also had a 12-yard touchdown called back against the Steelers. Tucker seems like a smart pickup for those who own White in leagues this season.
