The Buccaneers are going to lose one of their tight ends this offseason. It’s not a matter of ‘if’ but of ‘who?’ Tampa could trade away Cameron Brate or O.J. Howard, and Rob Gronkowski could walk in free agency if he proves to be too expensive. This feels like an extremely long shot, but it’s hard to rule anything out.
With a likely departure coming, the Bucs will want to address this opening with a draft pick. Tanner Hudson and Antony Auclair should get chances to earn the number three spot, but letting a rookie like Quintin Morris going in on the competition would only help.
Morris had great 2018 and 2019 seasons, and his ability to block better than Hudson should help set himself apart in a training camp battle.
Feleipe Franks, QB, Arkansas
The Buccaneers need a backup on their roster that isn’t named Blaine Gabbert or Ryan Griffin. Neither quarterback inspires confidence as the future of the franchise, and Tampa Bay needs to get creative to find the heir to Tom Brady.
Franks would be the most athletic quarterback on the roster on day one, and the Buccaneers could take some time trying to develop the only athletic quarterback with a strong arm that remained by this point in the draft.
