Trading up for Brock Bowers would add a whole, new dimension to the offense

If the Bucs rode into the 2024 season with Cade Otton as their starting tight end, I don't believe anyone would have a serious gripe with that. Otton has proven to be good enough in most situations and can be reliable as a red zone threat.

But, he's not one who will change a game on his own. Brock Bowers, on the other hand, can be the type to completely change a defense's gameplan. He's truly a wide receiver in the body of a tight end, being able to run a variety of routes and make moves after the catch to get upfield.

Bowers would give this passing game another legitimate weapon, which could make things interesting on defenses. Baker Mayfield already gets Mike Evans back, along with Chris Godwin. Add in another elite pass catcher, and this offense is going to soar to new heights.

Bowers' speed is something people might take for granted, too, but he can get going in a hurry. At the same time, he has the proper technique and enough strength to hold his own as a blocker. The guy does it all, and that's why he's by far and away the best tight end in this draft class.
