Could the Tampa Bay Bucs‘ Plan B for their upcoming draft be a tight end?
The Bucs have recently been linked to Miami tight end David Njoku, the second-best tight end in the upcoming draft. Njoku has special burst that could add something to the Bucs’ receiving corps, something more than incumbent Cameron Brate offers.
I know, I know. It’s hard to see the Bucs drafting Njoku over FSU’s Dalvin Cook, no matter what the mocks say. As a tight end, Njoku figures to touch the ball 5-6 times a game. As a running back, Cook figures to touch it about 20 times.
Ah, but if the Bucs are committed to Cook, and he goes off the board, say, 17th in the first round, Tampa Bay has to have an alternate plan.
Taking a player from Miami, a year after taking one from Florida and two years after one from FSU, sounds plausible.
