Demar Dotson would make a great skill player

The Bucs don’t need any more skill players, but if they did, Dotson fits the bill.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are going through a miserable season, and there’s only one thing that can cheer me up now: big guy touchdowns! Offensive linemen rumbling into the endzone with the ball. That’ll distract me from the misery that is being a Bucs fan.

So which Bucs linemen should we see falling forward with the football? The answer to this question used to be easy: Donald Penn, who’s now caught four career touchdowns. I don’t know how, but he’s actually a good tight end. Now it’s not so easy anymore, though.

Still, I think the answer has to be Demar Dotson. at 6’9”, he could just stand there and hold his arms outstretched to catch those overthrown deep balls. And he’s athletic enough to get down the field, too. He played basketball in college and only converted to football at the very end of his college career.

Another option would be Donovan Smith: he’s the biggest lineman in the group, and has plenty of athleticism too—even if he uses it inconsistently. I’d like to see him bowl over some defensive backs while running with the ball. Or maybe doing flips in the air from being tackled low. Who knows.
