With the 19th pick in the 2017 draft the Tampa Bay Buccaneers select, TE O.J. Howard from Alabama.
Yes, most people thought the Buccaneers would go with Dalvin cook at 19.
I can see it now Desean Jackson on the left, Mike Evans on the right, Adam Humphries in the slot, Jameis Winston under center, O.J. Howard and Cameron Brate on the line.
Can you say unstoppable?
The Buccaneers have so many offensive weapons it’s not even funny! O.J. is 6’6, 250 pounds and he ran a 4.51! He’s a great run blocker to help the Buccaneers run game, and also roll out and catch a pass.
Howard continued to grow throughout his time at Alabama. In 4 years at Alabama, he caught 1,726 yards on 114 receptions with 7 TD receptions. He averaged just over 15 yards per catch.
We don’t know what Licht has in store for the next rounds but things just got interesting for the Buccaneers.
