Updated Wide Receiver Depth Chart for Buccaneers Ahead of Training Camp
No team will enter the 2021 NFL season with as much momentum as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The defending Super Bowl champions were able to bring back most of their team from last season, including a dangerous group of wide receivers.
Here's a look at the Buccaneers' updated WR depth chart for 2021.
Buccaneers WR Depth Chart 2021
1. Mike Evans
Mike Evans stuck out the most out of the Buccaneers' "Big 3" wideouts in 2020. The 27-year-old hit the 1,000-yard mark for the seventh season in a row, adding a team-leading 13 receiving touchdowns. Considering no other Tampa Bay pass-catcher saw anything near his 109 targets last season, Evans should see a lot of action in 2021.
2. Chris Godwin
Just like Evans, Chris Godwin has been a staple in the Buccaneers' receiving corps for the last handful of years. While he took a step back in 2020, mainly due to injuries, he still finished the campaign with a respectable 840 receiving yards and 7 TDs. Look for Godwin to try and get back on track next season.
3. Antonio Brown
Some fans and experts were worried that the Buccaneers bringing in Antonio Brown last season could've been a distraction to the team. Fortunately, it wasn't. Brown was on his best behavior as he began building chemistry with Tom Brady. He ended up finishing the season catching 72.6% of his targets for 483 receiving yards and 4 touchdowns in just eight games. Considering he did that without being on the roster for the first half of the season, it should be interesting to see how Brown looks in 2021 after a full training camp.
4. Scotty Miller
Scotty Miller quietly had a pretty decent showing for the Buccaneers as a sophomore last season. His numbers weren't jaw-dropping by any stretch of the imagination, however, he did end up finishing with just over 500 receiving yards and 3 TDs.
5. Tyler Johnson
6. Jaelon Darden
A fourth-round selection in 2021, Jaelon Darden could see a solid role in his first season in Tampa. He's coming off a college season where he hauled in 74 receptions for 1,190 yards and 19 touchdowns with North Texas. It's highly improbable that he can recreate that production in the NFL, but it still shows that he has promising potential.
7. Justin Watson
8. Josh Pearson
9. John Franklin
10. Travis Jonsen
