Jeff Demps, RB: Without a doubt, many eyes will be on Demps tonight. The undrafted rookie figures to be involved as a kick returner, a position where the Patriots have sorely lacked explosion since the team released Brandon Tate last year. It was also be interesting how Demps fits into the team's plans on offense, although he could be limited in that area having only been with the team for a week.
Tom Brady, QB: Patriots fans haven't seen much of their starting quarterback this preseason, with Brady playing very limited snaps against the Saints, and sitting out (with many of the Patriots other starters) against the Eagles. Tonight will be Brady's "dress rehearsal," so to speak, so we'll see if Brady looks ready for the regular season.
Nate Solder, OT: Solder's play has been heavily scrutinized over the past two weeks, as his struggles have been well highlighted. In order for the Patriots' offense to function well this year, they're going to need to see improvement from the second year tackle. Fortunately for Solder, Logan Mankins should play extensive snaps at left guard tonight, which could help him out.
Two more to watch after the jump!
Julian Edelman, WR: After sitting out yesterday's practice, Wes Welker isn't expected to play tonight's game against the Bucs. That being said, this could be Julian Edelman's chance to show where his progress is at as a slot receiver. He played well against the Eagles, so I'm intrigued to see where he's at.
Brandon Bolden, RB: About a week ago, Bolden looked to be close to a lock to make the final roster. After a rough game against the Eagles, and factoring in the addition of Jeff Demps, Bolden looks to be on the bubble once again. I'm not sure how many snaps he will see tonight, but if Bolden is going to make this team, he'll need to take advantage of every opportunity he gets.
