MUST READ: Three-Spherical Mock 1.0: Bucs Get Offensive
1. JERRY JEUDY: WR, ALABAMA
Jeudy, whereas enjoying for the Crimson Tide the final two seasons, was fairly spectacular. In 2018 he caught 68 passes for 1,315 yards and fourteen touchdowns. In 2019 he had 1,163 yards and ten touchdowns. Whereas he’s solely 6’1” he nonetheless brings the pace and fingers. He ran a 4.27 within the 40-yard sprint on the NFL Scouting Mix. Brady loves receivers who run the proper routes and get open. Brady doesn’t have time to face within the pocket and look ahead to the proper receiver to run the right route he’ll discover somebody he can belief to get open. Jeudy is predicted to go early within the draft.
It appears Jeudy could possibly be a 3rd or fourth possibility at receiver for the Bucs. He’s not as tall as Evans or Godwin however can turn out to be a mismatch for opposing defenses along with his pace and willingness to get open.
2. JUSTIN JEFFERSON: WR, LSU
Jefferson, out of LSU, is anticipated to be drafted within the first spherical on this yr’s NFL Draft. He’s 6’1” and ran a 4.43 on the NFL Scouting Mix. In 2019 he caught 111 passes for 1,540 yards and 24 touchdowns.
If he falls down within the draft then I see the Bucs taking an opportunity. Nonetheless, the Bucs should watch him fall out of the primary spherical to think about it. He’s bought pace which is a should and with Brady being a 43-year-old quarterback he’s going to wish to get the ball out shortly.

3. CHASE CLAYPOOL: WR, NOTRE DAME
Claypool was a 4 yr participant at Notre Dame. He completed with 2,159 yards and nineteen touchdowns. With the Buccaneers transferring on from Breshad Periman they want a 3rd receiver to exchange him. One factor Claypool has is the scale at 6-foot-5. Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, and O.J. Howard are throughout six toes which might create mismatches for opposing defenses. Claypool recorded a 4.42 within the 40-yard sprint on the NFL Scouting Mix drawing some Calvin Johnson comparisons. I feel he’ll go within the fourth spherical if the Bucs choose him with their 117th choose.
Brady likes to get the ball out shortly and in case you have Claypool within the slot and supply a mismatch with a nook by his dimension and pace Brady will discover him open each time. In the event that they wish to substitute Periman than Claypool ought to be an possibility.

4. BRYAN EDWARDS: WR, SOUTH CAROLINA
Edwards out of South Carolina has the scale that may make him a superb match for the Bucs. The 6-foot-Three receiver is coming off an harm after breaking his foot preparing for the mix. Nonetheless, if the Bucs are on the lookout for further blocking then he might present that. Brady loves guys who can block so others can get open.
As well as, he might be an asset within the quick passing recreation. Brady loves the display recreation quick passes over the center. For Edwards coming off an harm, the Bucs could wish to use him that means. Nonetheless, the Bucs could have to make use of a third-round choice to get him.
5. Okay.J. HAMLER: WR, PENN STATE
Hamler, out of Penn State, isn’t the preferred large receiver within the draft however he’s well-known for his prowess within the quick passing recreation. At simply 5-foot-8, Hamler has the pace and skill to get open and take advantage of out of restricted house. That is a perfect ability set to have for a Brady-led offense.
General it’s a fairly stable large receiver group on this draft. The Bucs don’t want a lot as a result of they’ve two Professional Bowl receivers and a decent finish. If they need do substitute Periman then drafting both Jeudy, Jefferson, or Claypool could possibly be a match. But when Brady needs assist in the quick passing recreation then I’d draft both Edwards or Hamler.
