Jahan Dotson Stretches The Field

April 18th, 2022

Penn State WR Jahan Dotson.

Want to keep Tom Brady happy? Maybe help sweeten the pot to make him want to stay in Florida but away from Stephen Ross? Add needed top-flight speed to the offense?

Then Joe has the man for you: Penn State wide receiver Jahan Dotson.

Joe heard former NFL suit Michael Lombardi refer to Dotson as “a gamechanger.” Lombardi noted how even though Dotson had rotten quarterbacks at Penn State, he still got open, still got the ball and still put the fear of God in defenses.

And the thing Joe likes about Dotson? Teams knew he was Penn State’s only real weapon and still they didn’t stop him. Now if you want to argue, “Well, that’s the Big Ten for you,” Joe won’t argue. Still, to Joe, when teams focus on stopping a player and he still makes plays, that is a sign of dominance.

Joe noticed in Sports Illustrated last week Conor Orr noted when the Bucs have a legit third receiver, their offense is unstoppable. Dotson could be that receiver until Chris Godwin gets healthy and Dotson could be an awesome fourth-wide on passing downs.

With a run on receivers, there is a chance Dotson is still there when the Bucs pick at No. 27. Let’s just say you won’t see Joe cry if the Bucs pick him a week from Thursday night.

    This dudes not even as fast as Chris (4.43 40 VS 4.42), but from what I’ve read, he’s quick as all get out and the nfl’s website has compared him to Emanuel Sanders. That’s pretty awesome for a fourth string guy, so I won’t complain too much if we get him at 27, but I’m crossing my fingers for Olave.

  2. An Erection for Sacks Says:

    @Joe: The descriptions of this guy sound EXACTLY like Godwin back in 2017, no?

  3. Dman Says:

    No more WR’s, we need defense.

  4. Bee Says:

    Noap! Defense or Oline….but really defense.

  5. Bucsfan4ever Says:

    He sounds like Garden.
    No thx.

  6. Anonymous Says:

    This is not a “Smoke Screen” but more like a ‘Cloud Of Dust’!

  7. Bucs Guy Says:

    Bucs are not picking a #4 WR with its 1st rd pick. You’re buying in to the smoke screen. DE, DT and TE in rds 1-3.

  8. Bucsfan4ever Says:

    I want defence too, but I’d take a reciever if he’s a difference maker. I don’t see this guy that way.

  9. Bucsfan4ever Says:

    Darden, not garden

  10. Letsbuccinggo Says:

    No wide outs until after round three.

  11. David Says:

    Can’t see going receiver in the first round. That is usually a pick you want to be your 1 or 2 WR. His size and strength are a little questionable. It’s got to be D line

  12. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Sure…sounds exciting….but we need to do the boring pick…DT or OG……that’s the pick that will be the most solid for the next 10 years…..

    And, I’d love to keep Tom Brady another year….but screw Tom Brady….we don’t need to be picking draft picks simply to please him. If he agreed to a contract in return for the pick, that’s a different matter. But even a contract doesn’t assure he won’t retire again.

  13. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    I’d also be OK with a CB @ 27

  14. Alanbucsfan Says:

    Bengals were an OLine and 1 play away from winning SB. What have they done? They signed La’el Collins, Alex Cappa and Ted Karras to make their OLine one of best in NFL.
    Bucs are not replacing Marpet with a backup and expect everything to be good to go.
    If Brady has no time, a wide open Evans won’t matter…

  15. JA Says:

    Heard this guy on the radio last week. He’s an extremely bright kid for a college athlete. His tape ain’t bad either.
    Too bad he’ll be long gone before the Bucs feel the need to add another receiver.
    He’s gonna help somebody somewhere, but not us here.

  16. WhatTheBuc Says:

    I like him but you can’t have that much money in the receiver room. Maybe if he makes it to the second round.

  17. Steven007 Says:

    Hey here’s an idea, Russell Gage can be that guy until Godwin is healthy. Oh wait he’s on the team already! Making 10 million dollars! Next… We need front seven help more than we need another receiver at this point. At least in the first round.

  18. kyle Says:

    dline…simple as that

  19. Dooley Says:


  20. MadMax Says:

    Yep! Olave will be gone by 27….we need to trade with the Pats for him…but im cool with JD at 27.

  21. admin Says:

    @Joe: The descriptions of this guy sound EXACTLY like Godwin back in 2017, no?

    Not really. Dotson more of a burner than Godwin. And Godwin more physical than Dotson. They have similar traits but they are different receivers. Dotson may have better hands. Maybe.

  22. Ash Says:

    If you think two pro bowl wide receivers a very good up incoming reciever in Russell Gage and a good online are not enough to keep Tom happy that you need to draft an unproven rookie wr to do it then you already lost him and nothing can keep him happy. What a wild line of thinking.

  23. Cobraboy Says:


    Big Uglies in 2 of the first 3 picks.

  24. sasquatch Says:

    Any questions?

  25. Marine Buc Says:

    BPA @ #27 – OG, DL, CB, DE/OLB, WR.

    Don’t reach for anyone… Someone will fall to us. We have holes to fill at 9 different positions.

    I wouldn’t draft an OG unless Zion Johnson is still available with pick #27. We already have 6 mediocre guards on the roster. Don’t need another one thrown into the mix.


    Hopefully we still sign Suh and Gronk after the draft.

  26. godlovesbucs Says:

    WR is one of the worst picks to make in the 1st rd this year. Need help all along the lines.

  27. David Says:

    Marine Buc

    This draft is horrible for tight ends. I don’t think there’s a single one rated to be above the third round.

  28. Marine Buc Says:

    @ David

    I agree. I’m not suggesting we draft a TE in round #1.

    TE in round #3 is my prediction… Maybe round #4.

    I just listed the positions we need to fill in no specific order… We probably go with defense (OLB, DL, CB) in round #1.

    If Burks or Olave fall to #27 it would be difficult to pass them up though…

  29. Goatfarmer Says:

    No no no. Darden revisited.

  30. Letsbuccinggo Says:

    Gronks going back to the WWE might as well trade our 27th pick to Seattle for their 40th pick and Noah Fant. They need a QB and we need a TE.

  31. BUCman Says:

    Yes, Yes, Yes!! My favorite player in the draft!!!!! He is electric with amazing hands! CLUTCH PLAYER! If you haven’t watched him play you really have missed out! A must see! This guy is like the hot girl you’re willing to leave the wife and kids for 🤪

  32. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Any thoughts on us taking San Diego State’s Punter Matt Araiza, mid-round? The guy averaged almost 52 yards per punt last year. Looks like he may be able to handle kick offs and FGs as well.

  33. HC Grover Says:


  34. SPARKY Says:

    Look out Letsbuckinggo, Mike Florio is probably going with the Gronk to WWE story right this second, and you are his inside source.

  35. Letsbuccinggo Says:

    Your probably right SPARKY makes you wonder where they get their info.

  36. Letsbuccinggo Says:

    I am going to watch NFL Now today and see.

  37. Tony Says:

    I guess we’re just expecting the offense to score 30 or 40 every week while the D struggles some more. You’d think they would’ve learned after that NO game when neither one of the offenses did anything & that turned into a low scoring game because there are gonna be times where they’re probably gonna get into those type of games when the offense won’t do much.

  38. Joe in Michigan Says:

    “Tampa Tornado” Watson is faster, and bigger. Watson can learn the ropes from one of the best, Mike Evans. Return kicks his rookie year.

  39. sasquatch Says:


  40. SPARKY Says:

    All these years I’ve been spelling defence with a C.

  41. Joe in Michigan Says:

    Is somebody going to have a temper tantrum/meltdown/hissy fit if the Bucs go offense?

  42. Ash Says:

    I would imagine so if Burkes falls to them at 27 which I think is possible there is going to be alot of hurt feelings around here lol

  43. sasquatch Says:

    I don’t throw tantrums if they don’t pick who I think or expect. Once it’s done, I always accept that the front office knows what they want and why they make a decision. I’ve never said I’d be unhappy if we got another WR. I certainly can see wanting to add another weapon and stack the offense. Just think defense at all levels needs more help, especially D-line.

  44. Goatfarmer Says:

    Draft Kay Adams with the Bucs first pick. I’ll volunteer to personally coach her up.

  45. Joe in Michigan Says:

    Sasquatch: Agreed. I played DE and love a fierce pass rush. My gut feeling tells me the Bucs will take a WR in the 1st, if there’s one there that they love (and Wyatt is already chosen).

  46. TJ Says:

    He will join America’s Quarterback in New Orleans to contribute to the continued “son-ing” of Todd Bowles’ secondary. You heard it hear first.
