Austin Seferian-Jenkins vs Cameron Brate vs Luke Stocker
This is a make or break season for injury prone Seferian-Jenkins. Having started 50% of eligible games, Seferian-Jenkins has shown flashes of his potential but he’s also shown signs of a flop. He has all the athletic ability in the world but he doesn’t utilize it at times and has dropped his fair share of passes.

Cameron Brate has been a surprise on the field filling in for ASJ when he was hurt starting four games, catching 23 passes for 288 yards and three touchdowns. Being undrafted out of Harvard he earned every minute of playing time and could easily make his case to start over Seferian-Jenkins. He is not the same athlete Jenkins is though; he’s slower, smaller, and not as strong. I’m not saying he’s a bad player he’s just not the same athlete ASJ is.
The sleeper of the group is Luke Stocker. Stocker is a bull of a blocker and is one of the Bucs’ biggest secrets. Entering his sixth season he is very versatile. He’s not the best route runner or pass catcher but he can make plays when called upon. He filled in nicely as fullback too when Jorvorskie Lane went down with an injury. Newly drafted Danny Vitale could even play some tight end too.
This will be one of the most intense offensive battles in the offseason and I’m really hoping Seferian-Jenkins can really explode.
