Clemson star Sammy Watkins has been making headlines throughout his college football career and now it’s almost time for him to enter the NFL. The big thing in question is his destination. Will he land in Tampa?
Watkins was already seen as the No. 1 wide receiver in the draft and actually outperformed all other receivers in his bowl game to maintain that spot. But with teams drafting for needs early, which is why there are three quarterbacks in the first four picks, Watkins is still likely to drop out of the top five.
Now that Lovie Smith is the new Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ head coach, the team will be in need of this kind of player. Sammy Watkins is a huge asset for any team looking to spread the field. Watkins’ speed, size and playmaking ability make him a can’t-miss prospect that fills a need for Tampa Bay.
Added to a receiving corps that already includes the experience of Vincent Jackson on one side and a young Timothy Wright at the tight end position, Watkins can be the one piece down the field the Buccaneers are missing.
