Round 6, Pick 183 (via CIN): David Sills V, WR, West Virginia
The last pick that the Buccaneers receive from the Bengals in this draft in 2019, Tampa Bay adds another tall weapon for quarterback Jameis Winston to throw to in David Sills V from West Virginia. While Tampa Bay already has Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, and Breshad Perriman all over 6’1, Arians loves to deploy multiple towering receivers and even used Larry Fitzgerald in the slot while in Arizona.
Adding Sills to the offense would give Arians and offensive coordinator Byron Leftwich flexibility to move around receivers in different looks. While Godwin has been rumored to move to the slot in 2019, Sills could relieve any of the receivers and see the field in the slot, opposite Godwin in four wide receiver sets.
Sills is not the most athletic receiver in this year’s class, but at over 6’3 and 211 pounds, he still managed to run a 4.57 second 40 yard dash. He added a sub-seven second 3-cone time and hit 37½ inch vertical jump as well, making him a valuable red zone threat.
With over 15 touchdowns, 60 catches, and 980 yards in his final two seasons with the Mountaineers, Sills has proven to be a weapon for Will Grier, and in the right offensive system, he could become a major weapon in the NFL as well. Tampa Bay could be the perfect fit for Sills to develop into a quality receiver at the next level.
