WR Anthony Johnson
During the pre-draft process, Buffalo wide receiver Anthony Johnson was being hyped up as a potential fourth round pick. However he ended up going undrafted in a deep wide receiver class and landed with the Buccaneers and will look to make a name for himself in a deep position group.
Listed at 6-2 and 207 pounds, Johnson brings another big bodied receiver to the Buccaneers group that already consists of tall boys Chris Godwin, Mike Evans, and Breshad Perriman. In two seasons as a significant contributor for Buffalo, Johnson recorded over 2,300 yards (going over 1,000 yards both seasons), and 25 touchdowns on 133 catches.
One thing is for certain: Johnson knows how to find the endzone and the vertical style offense that the Buccaneers look to deploy could fit him like a glove. While he did not post a great vertical or show much agility at the combine, he did run a 4.55 40 yard dash at his pro day and remains a solid deep threat target.
The Buccaneers will probably look to roster five or six receivers this season, so Johnson will have to compete for a spot with Justin Watson, Bobo Wilson and others to prove he belongs in the big leagues. Keep an eye on the big target as camp rolls around.
