Crossing Fingers For UnexpectedFebruary 16th, 2017
Yes, Joe understands the Bucs need a wide receiver terribly. But could they hit the lottery?
It seems the consensus among many NFL observers is the best wide receiver in this spring’s draft class is Mike Williams of Clemson.
Obviously, Williams has played in big games, including the past two national championships. And he’s come up big in both games.
Reading the Twitter feed of Chris Trapasso of NFL.com, Trapasso believes Williams is the best receiver to enter the draft in a few years and likens him to a receiver Bucs fans — Stick Carriers! — know very well.
[email protected]: Haven’t watched/studied an NFL prospect as good in legitimate jump ball/contested catch situations as Mike Williams since Mike Evans in ’14.
That’s high praise there.
So how in the world would the best receiver in a draft class in a passing league fall to the Bucs at No. 19?
Outside of him walking into team interviews at the NFL Scouting Combine with a lit joint in one hand and a bottle of Jack Daniels in the other ,with a posse of loose women following his every step, Joe isn’t sure how.
(That’s one way for a prospect to make sure he doesn’t wind up with a Cleveland mailing address.)
That is, unless Bucs AC/DC-loving general manager Jason Licht trades up in the draft. Hey, we’re talking about a guy who traded up into the second round for a kicker here.
