Ole Miss receiver Shay Hodge appeared as a guest on a radio station in Baltimore and said that the Buccaneers are one of a handful of teams that he has been researching leading up to the draft and thinks that he could provide some help at receiver. Hodge led the SEC in receiving last year but is projected as just as a 4th or 5th round pick. He has good size, good hands and is a pretty good route runner but needs to prove his speed at combine.

 I thought Lovie said he wanted quickness & speed, even at the QB position?

Wouldn't be a bad pick in the 5th or so, but even then I'd rather pick up a project like Carlton Mitchell or a guy like Freddie Barnes who can catch anything thrown to him even if he doesn't have the speed.

PR did a story on him. he is definitely on of the  many sleeper WRs to go along with Andre Roberts, the weird name guy from Fresno St, Brown of CMU, Freddie Barnes and some i'm sure i'm forgetting right now. that is off the top of my head.

We want players who want to be Buccaneers.

Hodge is a mid-round prospect that has soft hands, and great route running ability. He doesn't have the speed to blow by the opposition, but his crisp routes get him the needed separation. His size compares to that of Reggie Wayne. He can make some very difficult catches in clutch moments. When I sat down with him at the Senior Bowl, he was very clear about what he wanted to get out of his NFL experience and he excelled in college even with some bumps in the road. Watch the video I linked in the article of one of his circus catches.

Bryant 'said' he wanted to play for the buccs - guess they decided he wasn't being honest. Or his knee wouldn't hold up for an entire season, or that he was disruptive in the locker room, or he spoke to the press in a manner they didn't like, or at 28 he was too old, or re-signing him would be too expensive...

He'd be a great pick up as the second Wideout taken in this draft by the Bucs.

I think the Bucs have to take at least 2 WRs in this draft.  Hodge is one of those guys we can find in the mid to late rounds that can hopefully contribute quickly

Hodge, Price, Roberts, McGaha are all good candidates.

I hope we get at least one of these guys + Thomas or Williams

C'mon peoplem, read between the lines, the reason he said he wanted to be a Buc is because he's pretty much a lock to make the team.  Any organization who would re-sign Clayton after he proved he's a bust and chose to bring him back after he put the exclamation point on his bust status can't be too picky about the WR's they keep on their roster.  Bryant won't be back because he'll cost too much, not because he can't play.  Being drafted in rounds 3-6, Hodge's financial situation won't really impact the Bucs.

Any college WR would like to come here because they'd be the most talented player at their position. Our WR position is a sad state of affairs.
