Buccaneers: Five Options to Cure the Need for Speed
When you turn on video of Washington wide receiver John Ross it’s easy to envision the Bucs falling in love with his skill-set. Everything that the Bucs passing attack lacks can be found in Ross, who is expected to be the fastest receiver in this draft and has drawn comparisons to DeSean Jackson.
Ross played two quiet seasons at Washington before breaking out as a junior last season. In 2016 he registered 81 catches, 1150 yards, and a staggering 17 touchdowns. With Ross the Bucs would have a long-term solution to their speed woes, something that a 30-year-old veteran couldn’t provide. Ross is among the top graded receivers in this draft, so the Bucs would need to invest a first round pick if they wish to enlist his services.
