Wide Receivers and Tight Ends: B-
Mike Evans followed up his rookie season with a strong second year, posting 74 receptions for 1,206 yards and three touchdowns. He is quickly proving himself to be an upper-echelon number one receiver. There is nothing better for a young quarterback than a receiver that he can rely on.

The only trouble was that nobody was healthy long enough to provide Evans enough support as a secondary option. Vincent Jackson only posted 543 yards on 33 receptions, and they ended up with a young man named Adam Humphries playing a larger role, with 27 receptions after being signed as an undrafted free agent.
Austin Seferian-Jenkins did post four touchdown receptions, showing potential, but he wasn’t around long enough to bring the grade up from the tight end position.
The Bucs needed more here to bring the grade up.
