    I was reading about the best receiving corps in the NFL according to Bucky Brooks and it got me thinking about the Bucs pass catchers. I really like what Mike Evans did in his rookie season. His combination of length, toughness, speed, ball skills and his ability to high point a pass are what make him the Bucs top threat in 2015. Right behind him is Vincent Jackson in my opinion. V.Jax also has great size and toughness to go along with veteran savvy, but I think Evans is just a bit faster and more tenacious on 50/50 balls. After that, I am not too sure who will emerge as a 3rd threat. Louis Murphy is likely the Bucs third best option at WR, but if Evans or Jackson went down, I’m not sure Murphy would be able to create the same amount of production. I want to put Austin Sefarian Jenkins in there as the third best receiver, but that remains to be seen. His first season was marred by injuries and drops. I am hoping he comes back strong in year two and emerges as the talented playmaker the Bucs envisioned when they drafted him. Beyond that, the roster seems pretty thin at pass catcher. Robert Herron is going to be fighting for a roster spot and if he continues to drop passes or is ineffective at returning punts or kicks, I can’t see the Bucs staying with him. WR Kenny Bell should be given every opportunity to be the Bucs third WR. His college production was great and what a hairdo! Kaelin Clay has great speed and suddenness and while all indications are that he is penciled in as the KR/PR, he could also emerge as a slot receiver with the ability to take short passes to the house or use his speed to take the top off of a defense. If all things go right, I think the Bucs are close to fielding a passing attack that could crack the top 12.
