The final place that will have a wide range of wide receiver options for the Buccaneers is the most likely place that they’ll look: the 2020 NFL Draft.

This draft class will be historically deep at wide receiver and the Buccaneers will have many options throughout each round to find a suitable WR3 to pair up with Mike Evans and Chris Godwin.

The first interesting option could be available in the second round, despite having the talent to go in the first. That player is Jalen Reagor from TCU. Reagor has the speed and frame to be a dangerous deep threat for the Bucs.

While it would take a higher pick to bring Reagor in, this addition would give Tampa Bay the best wide receiver group in the entire NFL. The vertical routes that Reagor would bring as well as his special teams prowess would put Tom Brady in the best situation he has ever been in offensively.

Looking at later rounds in the draft, the Buccaneers will would likely look for a player that possesses speed like Reagor. While speed is not everything, having a fast player that can successfully run vertical routes would open the offense up more.

Denzel Mims had a successful career at Baylor and is a great mix of size and speed. With this selection, the Bucs could get away with a later pick while also getting the skillset that they’re looking for.

A final player that the Buccaneers could bring in as a vertical threat is Stephen Guidry from Mississippi State. Because the Bulldogs haven’t had dominant quarterback play since the days of Dak Prescott, Guidry didn’t have the numbers to back up his talent.

This would likely allow the Buccaneers to draft the very talented Guidry in a later round without having to overdraft for talent.

Guidry would be an excellent deep threat for Tom Brady alongside the weapons that the Buccaneers already have and would not require the higher draft picks like the others.

Next. 3 Offensive tackles that would be ideal to protect Tom Brady. dark

Regardless of who is taken, the best bet for the Buccaneers to succeed with drafting another wide receiver is to find one with speed and one that can threaten the shot downfield. Tom Brady may be aging, but he still has the arm to make those throws to players downfield.
