So says Roy Cummings of the Tampa Tribune.

LINK

It’s too soon to know how they will acquire it, but the Bucs believe they need a legitimate speed receiver who can really take the top off a defense. They have an abundance of short- and medium-range targets, but would like to add a player who can drag a safety deep downfield and create more room underneath for Mike Williams, Kellen Winslow and Arrelious Benn.

If this is truly the case then here are my six nominees:

Cecil Shorts Mount Union 6-foot-0 200-pounds 4.34 forty
239 receptions for 4,443 yards and 60 touchdowns

Titus Young Boise State 5-foot-11 180-pounds 4.43 forty
198 receptions for 2,999 yards and 25 touchdowns and 55 kickoff returns for 1,435 yards and 2 touchdowns

Torey Smith Maryland 6-foot-0 205-pounds forty 4.37
150 receptions, 2,205 yards and 19 touchdowns and 120 kickoff returns for 2,909 yards and 3 touchdowns.

Jerrel Jernigan Troy 5-foot-9 193-pounds 4.34 forty
262 receptions for 3,127 yards and 18 touchdowns and 67 kickoff returns for 1,580 yards and 1 touchdown and 29 punt returns for 372 yards and 1 touchdown

Ronald Johnson USC 5-foot-11 190-pounds 4.46 forty
138 receptions for 1,750 yards and 20 touchdowns’, he also had 22 punt returns for 313 yards and 1 touchdown and 56 kickoff returns for 1,351 yards

Edmund Gates Abilene Christian 5-foot-11 4.35 forty
146 receptions for 2,600 yards and 26 touchdowns

I just dont buy it. At least not in the draft. We have too many needs defensively to draft yet another WR when we have so many good ones. I think Mike Williams did a great job stretching the field. I think Mike deep with K2 underneath creates plenty of coverage problems.

Another Roy Cummings "guess".  I don't see it.  Both Williams and Benn were effective "down field".  What we need is Stroughter & Parker to step-up in the slot.  WAY to many other needs.

I dont buy it either.  First off, Benn seemed to be doing a pretty good job of getting behind the defense later in the year and he is also a guy you want on the field for the short and intermediate passes.  Mike Williams is our solid #1 reciever.  You already have Sammie and Parker in the slot and in on 3rd down.  The only way we would draft a speed guy and put him on the field for a good amount of snaps is if the Bucs have completely given up on Stroughter and Parker and I just dont see that

Depending on Benn's health and status this off season along with the teams decision on Stroughter and Stovall, Stovall being a free agent and Stroughter being oft injured the team could use a legitimate deep threat.

Benn was looking better than just good towards the end of the year before his injury, Briscoe looked great in his few games at the end, Parker looked solid, Spurlock isn't exciting but I could make a pretty sweet highlight reel from his play this year, and we still have Sammie Stroughter.

WR is not even on the radar.

Ya Benn was making HUGE plays down field, MW too and Preston Parker is our speed receiver

Yeah people are mentioning it above but Benn was doing great at the end as far as stretching the field goes. He was becoming unique because you don't normally have guys stretching the field who are as powerful as he is. Actually Benn would have impressed me the most this season but Freeman was off on a lot of the deep throws to him even though he was a few steps ahead of the defense. In a weird way I was excited to see that Freeman was off on them because it shows that even though he had a great year he could still get a lot better.

I'm pretty certain that I have heard Freeman rave about Preston Parker in an interview and his speed and ability to stretch the field.

A (speed) WR may not be a need, but a complete TE definitely is. Winslow's inability to block really hurt us from a game planning and play execution perspective.

So i would like us to draft Kendricks, Rudolph or Stocker if any of them are available. I dont specifically know how great these guys are since i dont watch college ball, but i've heard that they are good and also from PR's scouting reports.

My assumption here is that a *pass rushing specialist* DE will not be available at #20 in Rd 1. I hope Dom isnt looking for a 'complete' type of player (the Kyle Moore type).

Lance Kendricks is just like Kellen Winslow.

Mayock says "hard to see him blocking anyone at the next level."
