TAMPA – The parade of draft prospects through One Buc Place will continue Monda when the Buccaneers host Georgia linebacker Akeem Dent.
Dent’s strength appears to be versatility as he started 13 games at middle linebacker last season after spending the previous two years serving the Bulldogs as a strongside linebacker.
Most scouts see Dent as a middle-round pick in the upcoming draft, but his versatility and a penchant for making big plays against the run may earn him a look from someone in the second or third round.
Dent’s visit comes in the wake of a visit from North Carolina middle linebacker Quan Sturdivant, who, like Dent, is viewed by most scouts as a middle-round selection.
