Tremendous Three: Combine Edition


The NFL Combine is underway, and here are three players I’ve had my eye on and believe the Buccaneers should too.


O.J. Howard-TE-Bama


Howard has an uncanny ability to find the open space on the field. He has impressive separation ability.

At 6’6  250lbs, he is extremely athletic and has a knack for picking up extra yards after the catch. He is an above average blocker in the run game which comes as no surprise being that he thrived in a Nick Saban run heavy offense.

He is a do it all type of tight end, a definite mismatch for linebackers and safeties making him a perfect short yardage target. He can line up in the slot or the Y and has no problems stopping a blitzing linebacker or keep the defensive end at bay. Adding him to the mix with Cameron Brate would certainly cause disruption in the middle of the field.



Alvin Kamara-RB-UT

Alvin Kamara is an interesting guy and there is no doubt in my mind he is going to be an impact player somewhere in the NFL. His versatility, his aggressive style of running and his speed, speak volumes about how well this young man is going to play.

Kamara is capable of snatching up big chunks of yards, However, there is a bit of a question mark on whether he can be an every-down back. But he does stand out in the screenplay. His versatility and speed make him lethal.

At 5’10 214lbs, I would think he could bring back some of that old school “Juice” like Warrick Dunn used to bring out of the backfield.



Josh Reynolds-WR-Texas A&M

Josh Reynolds is a long striding wide receiver capable of running down long passes and catching the football in stride as he pulls away from defenders with relative ease. He has the solid leaping ability, allowing him to hit the ball at the highest point winning most contested passes.

He has quick hands and his height at 6’4 makes him a perfect candidate for our division. He would be a day two selection and has the perfect size and speed to be a number two receiver in Tampa, a number one for a lot of NFL teams.
