This off-season for the Bucs has been like no other in the history of the franchise. After being able to sign star Desean Jackson in free agency, Tampa went out to grab another talented receiver in the third round of the draft.
Heading into the 2017 season, the Bucs look on paper to have the best receiving core in the history of this franchise. Pairing two All-Pro receivers together on the same offense along with returning slot man Adam Humphries and an exciting rookie cast may lead to something special in the bay area. Not only has this off-season been an early Christmas for Jameis Winston, but it also has the NFL’s media on the edge of their seats.
After the first four receivers, things begin to get a little hairy on who just will make the last spot in the receiver room. The Bucs have some exciting prospects in Derel Walker, Thomas Sperbeck, and returning Freddie Martino, but none offer the special teams ability. Look for the last spot on the roster to be fought between Josh Huff and undrafted rookie Jesus “Bobo” Wilson.
In this case, the edge goes to Wilson. Not only is Wilson once again paired with his college quarterback in Winston, but he also has the ability to make something out of himself in the return game.
