Buccaneers head coach Bruce Arians was vague about defensive tackle Gerald McCoy‘s roster status at the league meetings last week and McCoy is not at this week’s workouts Bobby Okereke Jersey , but a couple of the top defensive line prospects for this year’s draft have been in town.Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that former Clemson defensive tackle Dexter Lawrence and former Houston defensive lineman Ed Oliver were both in to meet with the team.Oliver has also gotten some looks from teams as a linebacker during the pre-draft process, but he called himself the best defensive lineman in this year’s class at the Scouting Combine. Lawrence is definitely going to be playing on the defensive line in the NFL and his mix of size and ability has led many to predict he’ll be coming off the board early in the first round.The Bucs have met with a variety of other defensive players recently and it seems like a good bet that they will be bolstering their front seven if they stay put at No. 5 in the first round. The first half of the Falcons season has been highlighted by the players they’ve lost. Wednesday, the got a glimpse of one that might be coming back.Via D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Khari Willis Jersey , Pro Bowl linebacker Deion Jones tested his broken foot during practice, working on the side with the team’s athletic training staff.Jones broke his foot in the opener, and has missed six games Josh Allen Jersey , which means he’s at least two weeks away from a return. But he’d provide a boost to a defense that was shell-shocked in the first three weeks, when he and starting safeties Ricardo Allen and Keanu Neal went to IR.The Falcons are expected to use their other designated for return spot on running back Devonta Freeman, who is out following core muscle surgery.A player can start practicing after six weeks Jawaan Taylor Jersey , which triggers a three-week window to activate him. Jones apparently isn’t ready for that much work load, but being back on his feet is a positive step. In addition to his own play, he’d help the entire defense as he’s the signal-caller Josh Oliver Jersey , and that job has been split among a few players early this year.
