The Buccaneers need to address another likely position
Jalen Wydermyer, TE, Texas A&M
Let’s stay in Texas. The middle rounds should see a run on the tight end position, and it is almost a certainty that the Buccaneers get involved.
O.J. Howard barely contributed this season, Rob Gronkowski is likely on his way out with Tom Brady, and Cameron Brate can’t be the only option for a new quarterback.
If this starting quarterback could be Kyle Trask, drafting a suitable tight end with hands should be one of the biggest priorities. It is no secret that Trask’s favorite target in college was Kyle Pitts, and while Wydermyer is far from Pitts, his athleticism and hands could make him what the Bucs thought they were getting with Howard.
This is the third pick in a row where the Buccaneers add a pass-catcher. It may feel like too much, but keeping the offense stacked with supporting talent is the only way to make this next quarterback work. Sure, Tom Brady didn’t need All-Pros at every position, but the new guy would undoubtedly like the help.
Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, Chris Olave, Isaiah Spiller, and Wydermeyer make for a pretty scary 11-personnel grouping that could make any quarterback look good, and the Bucs certainly shouldn’t neglect their offense just because it has looked good in the past.
