Myles gets his shot with Tampa Bay

From Tarleton to the NFL

Sports Editor

Tywain Myles didn’t get to hear his name called out on ESPN or the NFL Network during the countless hours of live draft coverage last weekend, but he’s going to mini-camp just the same.

Myles signed with Tampa Bay as an undrafted free agent and will attend the Buccaneers’ mini-camp Thursday through Saturday.

The 6-2, 305 defensive tackle from Nacogdoches was a three-time All-Conference pick in the South Division of the Lone Star Conference while at Tarleton, and was named the South Defensive Lineman of the Year in 2006.

Scouts always keep up with all the guys like Tywain who they think have potential,” said Tarleton Head Football Coach Sam McElroy. “As the draft finishes they’re always looking for other players available who may serve a need on their team.”
