Dede Westbrook – Wide Receiver, Oklahoma
Speed is a theme of this off-season for the Buccaneers, and until they find a solution to the deficiency on their offense it isn’t going to change.
Dede Westbrook from Oklahoma is a speedster with big-play potential and Power-5 experience.
That’s not to say your conference competition makes you a better prospect, but it helps when you’ve faced some NFL talent on a fairly regular basis.
Westbrook reminds me a bit of Falcons receiver Taylor Gabriel, and could come into the Bucs organization to fill a very similar role from day one.
Moving forward, he could develop into the team’s full-time slot option.
While this all means the Bucs still need to find themselves a solid number two option, getting the talents of Westbrook added to the squad while they continue their search would prove fruitful in the long run.
Nobody on the Buccaneers stepped into the return game enough to really be considered a can’t miss return man for 2017 either, so getting the ball into the Sooner speed star in the return game could also provide some exciting moments for the franchise and their fans.
Like I said, this is my favorite day at the combine and I honestly can’t wait to see each and every one of the players take the field.
These five are the ones I chose to single out, but they are nowhere near the only action in play. Who do you want the Buccaneers spotting, and who did I name here that you absolutely hate as a draft target?
