In a similar situation to Ogunbowale, Scotty Miller has a chance to earn more reps in 2020 than most people would expect. As it stands, recent draft pick Tyler Johnson looks like the lock to be the WR3 for the Buccaneers, but a reduced offseason could see that endeavor stall out.
If Bruce Arians and the rest of the coaching staff are unable to evaluate Johnson enough to put him in that third role, Miller will be the one who likely steps into that spot.
After Tampa Bay selected him in the 2019 NFL Draft, Miller experienced several moments of success in the Buccaneers’ fourth role during his rookie season. While his spot in the scheme wasn’t perfectly situated to lead to high levels of success, Miller still showed that he could be a factor on the Buccaneer offense.
If Tyler Johnson doesn’t earn the third role, don’t expect for there to be a massive drop-off with Miller and his abilities. As the fastest player on the roster, Miller can still be a threatening force on the offense that will mesh well with the other pass-catchers.
He may have only posted 200 receiving yards and a touchdown in a minimal rookie year, but Scotty Miller could surprise a lot of people in 2020.
