Tampa Bay Buccaneers: A Look at the WR Depth Chart


The Tampa Bay Buccaneers, like all teams, are getting ready for the draft. They will be looking at all the players. The Buccaneers will then evaluate their talent at every position. This will determine whether they need to use a draft pick on that position.

The position I am going to touch on today is wide receiver. The Buccaneers currently have 7 wide receivers on their depth chart. Here are the 7 players the Buccaneers will either stick with or change as the season approaches.

  1. Mike Evans

Evans is the number one receiver for the Buccaneers. He was number one even with DeSean Jackson on the team, but now Jackson has been traded. Evans will be a big weapon for quarterback Jameis Winston moving forward. If they decide to part ways with Cameron Brate, then Evans will be the primary weapon for Winston.

  1. Chris Godwin

Godwin didn’t have the year that we all thought he would. Like Evans, now that Jackson is gone he should be seeing more looks. If Evans is the number one and draws double coverage, this will be good for Godwin. He should learn from what happened in 2018 and excel in 2019.

  1. Breshad Perriman

Perriman was a free agent pickup from the Cleveland Browns. Perriman should be a good fit for the Buccaneers. He will help take the pressure off Evans and Godwin. Look for Coach Arians to utilize him in the Buccaneers’ offense.

  1. The other four: Justin Watson, KJ Brent, Bobo Wilson, and Sergio Bailey

These gentlemen will be there for special teams and to help on offense. One of them has big shoes to fill with the departure of Adam Humphries. I am not saying that they will. One or two of them have to prove themselves moving forward.
