Bucs Can Afford to Wait On Wide Receivers


The Bucs will enter this draft in a unique position: they have five-to-six quality wide receivers under contract.

They are – in my estimation – the only team that could easily justify going the whole seven rounds without drafting a wide receiver with this top-flight class of wideouts. Green Bay, Pittsburgh and Indianapolis are three more teams with plenty of receiver talent under contract for 2011.

Based on the NFL.com rankings, the Bucs wound up with 3 of the top 11 2010 wide receiver prospects.

Chicago, Green Bay, Houston, Indianapolis, Jacksonville, Kansas City, Miami, Minnesota, New Orleans, New York Giants, New York Jets and San Diego drafted no wide receivers in 2010.

Atlanta, Arizona, Baltimore, Buffalo, Carolina, Green Bay, Houston,  New Orleans (four picks) and the New York Jets (three picks) drafted no receivers in 2009.

Carolina, Dallas, Houston, Jacksonville (five picks), Miami, San Diego (five picks) and Seattle drafted no receivers in 2008.
