“Very, Very Effective”May 27th, 2014
A prominent NFL voice is a Seattle local who watched plenty of new Bucs rookie tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins at the University of Washintgon.
And in this case, familiarity has bred extreme optimism for manbeast Seferian-Jenkins’ future.
BSPN “Professor” John Clayton said the Bucs’ new blocking-receiving threat was “always consistently the guy making the catches in the middle of the field” in college and “he’s got that knack” of getting open.
Clayton believes Seferian-Jenkins will be “very, very effective” and was a true first-round talent who dropped in the draft because of an off-field “mistake” (DUI arrest and guilty plea last year) and a stress fracture in his foot that knocked him out of the NFL Scouting Combine in February.
Joe thinks Seferian-Jenkins can become a phenomenal pick, but Jeff Tedford needs to know how to use him. That’s no given.
It made Joe sick that sleazy Jerramy Stevens was on the Bucs roster — another gargantuan Washington tight end with excellent hands — but Joe still wanted him to help the Bucs win. The problem was Chucky and Greg Olson never figured out how to work the guy into the offense consistently before drugs drove Stevens from the game in 2010.
Listen to Clayton’s full WDAE-AM 620 interview below with Tom Krasniqi. Among many topics, Clayton explains why he believes Carolina has “taken too many hits” this offseason to repeat its stunning 2013 season.
