Tampa Bay Buccaneers stock watch

FALLING

Carl Nicks. Nicks and the Bucs say he’ll be ready for training camp. But there’s plenty of room for skepticism. Camp is six weeks away and Nicks has yet to start running.

Austin Seferian-Jenkins. The NCAA rule that prevents players from participating in NFL offseason programs while classes at their college still are going on kept Seferian-Jenkins from taking part in the offseason program. He’ll have a lot of catching up to do during training camp.

Oniel Cousins and Jamon Meredith. These are two guards with some experience, but they were working with the second team during most of last week’s minicamp. They might have trouble hanging on to roster spots if they don’t show more in training camp.

RISING

Patrick Omameh and Kadeem Edwards. These two were working as the first-team guards through most of minicamp. Edwards, a rookie, was working in Nicks’ spot on the left side and Omameh was on the right.

Louis Murphy. The wide receiver helped his case for a roster spot with a solid showing in the minicamp.

Brandon Myers. With Seferian-Jenkins missing, Myers got most of the work at first-team tight end. Myers could end up as the starter at the beginning of the season.
