The Buccaneers add to their receiver corps
Chris Olave, WR, Ohio State
The Buccaneers need to re-sign Chris Godwin before they do anything else, but looking for another talented wide receiver in the draft is the clear next step.
There aren’t many pressing needs in Tampa. The end of the first round is generally a pick your poison affair, and having a third quality receiver for the new quarterback is paramount to their success.
Like it or not, the loss of Antonio Brow hurt the Bucs. The depth receivers did little to step up outside of Cyril Grayson, and putting a weaker quarterback with that unit will only lead to disaster.
Olave gives the future quarterback one of the best receivers in the class and a dominant WR3 to rely on when Mike Evans and Chris Godwin are getting extra attention from the defense.
Everyone saw how successful the Bucs were with a guy like Brown being the third guy on the depth chart, so ignoring the position due to a great starting pair makes little sense.
There are several other directions the Buccaneers can go with this pick, but someone like Olave has the talent to elevate any quarterback, and that could be precisely what the front office will be searching for as they prepare for a potential future with Blaine Gabbert and Kyle Trask.
