Every year there are always those individual guys that go undrafted that turn into hidden gems. I mean look at Adam Humphries, he came in for a rookie tryout and he turned into a hidden gem for us. I am going to name just three undrafted signings that I think will turn out to be hidden gems.
The Buccaneers are LOADED with wide receivers this year, but I still believe that Bobo can and will make the 53 man roster. Bobo is 5’9, 190 pounds, and ran 4.57 in his 40 time. Bobo played with Jameis for two years at FSU, so there is already great chemistry there with the two of them. In the four years in college, Bobo accumulated 1,563 yards on 133 receptions with 8 touchdowns. I don’t see him taking Humphries spot in the slot unless some kind of injury happens. (GOD FORBID) I do see Bobo potentially helping in the return game if he makes the team. Bobo returned punts in college and collected 383 yards on 44 receptions. He did return a punt for a touchdown last year against Charleston Southern.
2. Anthony Auclair
Many people do not know who this guy is or where he came from. Well, he has been playing in Canada at Laval. Auclair is 6’6, 254 pounds and has the power and quickness to run through contact and extend his blocks. He has the hands and size to become a threat in the passing game. We all know the Buccaneers starters at TE will be Brate and Howard, but the Buccaneers are going to be running double TE sets quite a bit next year. Koetter went the shrine game and thought Auclair was impressive during the weekend. There was thought that if Buccaneers wasn’t able to get Howard in the first round that they were going to use a later pick on Auclair. Auclair is going to be another offensive weapon for Winston. I am telling you guys, WATCH OUT FOR THIS GUY! He could replace Myers spot.
3. Sefo Liufau
Now let me begin saying no QB is going to challenge Winston for the starters spot. He locked that in the bag and throw away the key. Ryan Griffin will most likely be the new backup so Liufau is playing for the third string position between Sean Renfree. In 4 years at Colorado Liufau compiled 9,746 yards on 1,412 attempts. Liufau threw 60 TD’s and 35 interceptions and has a career 129.9 QBR. Liufau also has the ability to spread the pocket and run if needed. Liufau has rushed for 933 yards on 382 attempts.
All three of these players have the ability to be something special for the Buccaneers. I am extremely excited for what the 2017 season has in-stored! GO BUCS!
