Tampa Bay has added a weapon for their offense.
With the 144th pick, the Bucs select Pennsylvania wide receiver Justin Watson for Jameis Winston and the offense.
NFL Media’s Lance Zierlein compares Watson to New England Patriots’ Receiver Chris Hogan. Below is his breakdown of Whitehead on NFL.com.
Big, productive receiver with good football character who has upped his draft slotting with a eye-opening pro day. Watson dominated cornerbacks in the Ivy League, but may not have the suddenness to get off press or the acceleration to uncover against tight man coverage. His size and ball skills are intriguing, but he’ll need to prove this his athletic testing can carry-over onto the field. He’s a likely day three selection whose size, speed and explosion numbers could give him a bigger push than expected.
Watson was a projected fourth round prospect.
Lots of love on the streets for Justin Watson leading up to the draft. The @Buccaneers newest WR has big-time talent as a "big" pass catcher with sticky hands. He could carve out a nice niche as a WR4. #NFLDraft— Bucky Brooks (@BuckyBrooks) April 28, 2018
