“Fill-In Guys” Are “Absolutely Not” No. 2 WRsApril 8th, 2014
Former Bucs tight end Anthony Becht, who now works on the Buccaneers Radio Network, ESPN and for other media, seems to be missing the “true complement” a receiver like Mike Williams offered Vincent Jackson and the Bucs offense.
Replacing Williams has got to be a priority in next month’s draft, Becht explained on the Ron and Ian show today.Becht said Jackson remains a good No. 1 receiver but could benefit from a guy like Williams and/or someone that can offset Jackson’s lack of speed.
The No. 2 receiver is absolutely not Louis Murphy or any other receiver currently on the roster, Becht said, and the Bucs have to dive into the draft head first at that position. He called the crew on the depth chart after Jackson “fill-in guys.”
In the draft, Becht identified Khalil Mack and Sammy Watkins as his first two choices, and if they’re unavailable, then he’d be looking at an offensive lineman and other receivers.
Becht had plenty to say, and you can hear the full audio below. He gives the Bucs an “A+ on paper” for their offseason moves but he remains very skeptical of Jeff Tedford and the offense.
