Austin Seferian-Jenkins: Consistent

May 9th, 2014

Though Joe has read and heard bad things about how much Bucs second round pick Austin Seferian-Jenkins’ numbers have fallen off, Joe notices consistency.

Seferian-Jenkins saw his number of catches drop the past season from 69 catches in 2012, to 41 last season. It could be that Washington had garbage for quarterbacks.

But, again, Joe sees consistency. Real consistency. Here are the averages yards per catch for the former Huskies hoops player: 12.5, 12.3 and 13.1. That is what Joe calls consistent.

He is an athlete, just like Mike Evans, just like Vincent Jackson. A big athlete. Perhaps Lovie, knowing none of his quarterbacks on the roster will ever see Canton short of buying a ticket or a house, will just throw up jump balls and hope his receivers can haul them down.

Sure smells like it.

    The last tight end from washington university we had in tampa was a real turd, hope this guy ain’t the same.

    Could possibly mean a switch back to reciever for Tim Wright….

    Interesting thought. Joe knows Jason Licht likes him.

    A great risk/reward pick. Rated the top tight end coming out of high school with a Jimmy Graham body and outstanding hands. Don’t know why his play declined in 2013, but I wouldn’t want to be trying to defend against our twin tower wide receivers and this gigantic tight end in the red zone. Lovie obviously going all offense. This is a supremely talented, gifted athlete. If they can find the key, he will be a star. If not, out of the league in three years. I like it.

    They talked about rotation at wr/te.. They have speed with suspect hands.but they have near a full court of hightower Bball players with incredible hands..

    Tedford will mix wr/te ser based on mismatch

  7. Orca Says:

    In Tedford’s offense, I’m not sure it’s really going to matter if Wright has a TE label or a WR label. He’s an inside receiver and a redzone threat.

    Huge upside here…..I think we can fill in the Oline later & in FA…..I am sure this guy was at the top of their board because Marquise Lee was available along with several other great options.

    No joe this creates matchup problems for the defense. I hope Glennon suddenly plays out of his mind so you can stop dogging him. There is only one hall of fame qb in the division so why even bring that up. Joe we can all feel hatred my friend

    This is a good pick. I had hoped the Bucs would have grabbed Eric Ebron (TE) in Round 1, but they took Evans. I now find out that Austin SF is a better blocker than Ebron, and is compared to Rob Gronkowski. The Bucs are definitely stacking their offense, and TE is on the field more than three WRs, so the impact is immediate. I expect a burner type WR in the 3rd round. Think the Bucs may be optimistic on Carl Nicks (LG) or the ability to pick up another Guard in FA round 2. Next best thing to a guy that can throw accurately is a guy who can go get the balls that back shoulder or not so accurate. The Bucs definitely fixed that with two picks.

  11. Gusjackson Says:

    These picks are for dougie. We now have three guys on the edge that can block. He will be happy to see this

    Stocker is gone!

    From March:

    But to open holes, Smith says he needs a run-blocking tight end. Tim Wright caught 54 passes for 571 yards and five touchdowns in 2013. But he’s limited as a blocker.

    “If we talk about being a running football team, we need a traditional (tight end) that can block and be a pass catcher also,” Smith said. “Injuries have hurt the position. But right now, we need to upgrade the tight end position also.”

    “will just throw up jump balls and hope his receivers can haul them down.”

    Haha, I ain’t going to lie Joe, that is what i saw with J. f’n Football also, just wing it up in the air to Evans.

    We need some Olineman though, have to have some time to wing it out there, and Glennon is not buying any time the way he played last year.

    Mind filling us in at what the offense is? All we’ve heard are guesses by media people. Bucs are hiding everything on the offensive side.

  16. BrandonBucsFan Says:

    It’s a safe bet that Luke Stocker will compete with Tim Wright for the second TE job, and a good possibility that as a former 3rd round himself, he’ll be a back-up TE, as I still expect the Bucs to carry three TEs.

  17. Andrew 1 Says:

    Your looking at yards per catch? lol. try taking a peek at how many receiving TDs this guy scored last season. The guy scored 8 receiving TDs last season! Thats pretty damn good for a TE. Might make a nice red zone target.

    Haha I love ur confidence joe. No more 3 n outs either wright or jenkis can play in the slot n it can still be a successful run play. Glennon won’t have a problem taking over the reigns.

  19. BrandonBucsFan Says:

    Oops…I forgot (to a nice surprise) the Bucs picked up Brandon Myers in FA. I guess we can expect Stocker to be gone. But he was clearly a bust, always injured, and sadly didn’t live up to it.

  20. Shawnbucfan Says:

    Lovie we have Maunte Bol on line 2

  21. BrandonBucsFan Says:

    From the nfl.com website, Austin SF “was arrested in March 2013 for DUI following a late-night car accident (blood-alcohol level was 0.18); pleaded guilty, paid a $695 fine and was sentenced to 364 days in jail, 363 of which were suspended. Also was suspended for the season opener against Boise State. Broke his right pinkie finger during fall camp and had surgery to insert a pin in the finger.” So for a couple different reasons, he was not higher up. He’s also not Gil Brandt’s favorites, so I hope the Bucs can this kid healthy and out of trouble.

    What does this clown make, about 8 TE’s.
