Examining the Buccaneers’ Choices at Third Wide Receiver
The Buccaneers’ top two wide receivers have the potential to be one of the top duos in the NFL. But, who takes the third wide receiver position.
Despite a drop off in touchdown production, Mike Evans second season with the Buccaneers was a solid one. He may have gone from 12 to 3 touchdowns, but his yardage increased from 1,051 yards to 1,206 yards. Evans is well on his way to Tampa Bay stardom.

A portion of the drop off in scoring can be attested to the shortened season, due to injury, for Vincent Jackson. “V-Jax” added 1,000 receiving yards of his own in Evans’ rookie year, helping open up his side of the field for Evans’ 12 touchdowns. Together, they are quite the dynamic duo.
But who is next? When the Bucs go into multiple receiver sets, who comes in as the third guy? Jason Licht didn’t address the position in the draft like many thought he might, so we have the current depth chart.
Today, we look at who the options are, and who might be the best choice.
