Linebacker Lavonte David hasn’t gotten the attention of some of the Buccaneers’ other new parts, but he has impressed in his short time there.
And tonight, they’ll get a good barometer of how the second-round pick from Nebraska will hold up to a frequent challenge.
But that’s just the beginning of it for David, per Stephen Holder of the Tampa Bay Times.
So David’s ability to drop into coverage will be as much of a key to slowing down that part of the game plan as safeties Mark Barron and Ronde Barber. Tonight will give an indication of how ready he is for that test.
