Bucs Add Another Elite-Speed Receiver, Scott Miller In Round 6

April 27th, 2019

No Senior Bowl invite.

No trip to the NFL Scouting Combine or the East-West Shrine game for the newest Buccaneer.

Wide receiver Scott Miller out of Bowling Green might have been ignored by a ton of football people, but not by the Bucs who made him their late-sixth-round pick today.

He clocked in the 4.3-speed neighborhood at his Pro Day, per this Toledo Blade report, and the Bucs took their shot.

It seems Miller turned a lot of heads opening last season at Oregon with 13 catches, 166 receiving yards, and two touchdowns. The Bowling Green website lists him at 5-11, 166 pounds. Joe sure hopes Miller can return kicks.

With that speed, he should at least be a fun guy to watch in training camp.

    Pretty safe at this point to call the first exam which is the NFL draft, a big “D” grade Basically re-did past drafts without addressing other needs. This heralds a GM who is bent on fixing past mistakes (like high round DBs last year) and total gaffs (Aguayo) vice spreading it out over other current needs. As a season ticket holder, my first demand is don’t ask me to pay more in 2020. And we go from there. Yeah, needed a WR at all.

    Not to be a dig but sounds a lot like lil Dexter Jackson. Small school prospect who runs a blazing 40 and has one game of good production against a big time school. At least it’s not a second round pick like the former.

    We may have just replaced Hump…..4.3….wow…..we are certainly getting faster as a team…..should help on ST.

  4. SB Says:

    They just showed a stat that Matt Gay is the Highest drafted kicker since the Bucs took Aquayo.

    WR really … Jamies needs OL help has plenty of weapons. Unbelievable

    Buccaneers Fans = F

    I like this pick….although I would have preferred Andy Isabella a couple of rounds earlier….but I can live with this. However overall, can’t say I’m overly excited by this draft. I think the Panthers and Falcons got measurably better….love the 2 big O-linemen Atlanta took in round one to keep Matt Ryan safe and open holes for Devonta Freeman….but I just don’t see what the hell Jason Lcht is doing here.

    Are yall for real crying about 6TH ROUND picks? You’ve got to be kidding…

    This guy will not be active on Sundays. can only dress 46

  10. stpetebucsfan Says:

    One thing is clear after the draft…BA values SPEED.

    Wow…no matter all the naysaying we got significantly faster this weekend.

    I used to like the old Sam Wyche thought twist….”We may be slow but at least we’re small.” Well we’re no longer slow at least.

  11. Brandon Says:

    Not Dexter Jackson. This dude was 8th in the country in receiving yards. FYI. He’s 5’9 172 and ran a 4.33 at his Pro Day.

  12. NOSBOS Says:

    People people people jbf is a forum for griping and groaning,let these folks have they’re moment. It’s who they are as individuals. Same folks will act as if they never said anything negative next season when we kickin all types of @$$. 😊trust me when I tell you.

  13. NOSBOS Says:

    Someone just said he won’t be on the roster come week 1. Boi stop BA loves speed he’ll find a spot for him.

  14. passthebuc Says:

    The reason we did not draft any O linemen is we are not keeping JW next year. We will go 1/15 and draft no.1… For our first pick, we will make history drafting a PK. The public will turn its back on the Bucs and the ticket sales will falter to almost zero. The Glazers will complain to the NFL who will immediately award them a new franchise in London.

  15. PSK Bucs Fan Says:

    Do y’allreally think Licht is calling the shots? This is Arians’ draft all the way!

  16. passthebuc Says:

    Well, there are always Harvard players that have not been drafted waiting to come to Tampa. lol

  17. stpetebucsfan Says:


    Agree once again and admire your charitable thoughts. Yeah JBF seems to have become a place to vent and unload a ton negativity. If it saves their families and friends from hearing all this gloom and doom then again I agree with you. Since I’m on my laptop I just use my scroll wheel and move on.

    Meanwhile back to reality or at minimum the conventional wisdom. Most football “experts” believe you can’t judge a draft until after three years. Folks here are so far ahead of the curve they’re willing to make FIRM pronouncements before these guys even get to camp much less play a down.

    As for me…I do not assume I know more than BA/Bowles/Licht so I think I’ll follow the CW and wait before grading this draft.

    And I get all the D’s and F’s even if I believe they’re incredibly premature. There are players that excite fans and those who do not. Based on that metric the Bucs did get a low grade.

    But then there are players who actually contribute and those who don’t and again I think I prefer to wait and judge them on that metric.

    I’m with jarhead. People crying cause they dont recognize names. I’m glad they drafted defense. Now we have corners that can be disruptive with wrs in division .

  19. stpetebucsfan Says:


    Like you I’m with Jarhead…besides I learned back in my Army days not to mess with Marines.

    You say “6TH ROUND picks” as if they’re unimportant, throwaway picks. Tom Brady was selected in the 6th round. Shannon Sharped was selected in the 7th round, Richard Dent in the 8th round, Roger Staubach in the 10th round, Deacon Jones in the 14th round and Bart Starr in the 17th round.

    The important thing is the choices you make as to who you’re bringing onto your team with the opportunities you have available to you. Nowadays, when the draft has shrunk to 7 rounds, that makes each round (particularly the 5th, 6th and 7th rounds) proportionately more valuable, since you have that many fewer chances to select players that only your team has control over without having to compete with every other team for the opportunity to employ them.

    Dan Quinn is on the hot seat this year. To use up your first three rounds on two offensive linemen who won’t help the team until year 2 or three was head coach suicide.

    We should be seriously faster on st if nothing else

  23. Jameis Almighty! Says:

    Lock out Licht! Franchise ruining, bad drafting, kicker picking, horrible, there is no Licht at the end of the tunnel with Jason Licht. Fireeeee Licht!

  24. First Down Tampa Bay Says:

    Ludicrous Speed

    You named legends drafted in the 6th round. Needle in a haystack. I’d like a percentage of 6th and 7th rounders that are even ON THE TEAM within 5 years of being drafted. Past round 5, the draft is completely guesswork.

  25. BA FAN Says:

    This guy can return kicks, backup both Perriman as a burner, and the slot too. Give Licht some credit for finding him!
