    This team is a team; each veteran player tries to help the rookies whether they have played for other teams in the past or not. Great feeling that there isn’t as much expectations that a highly drafted pick has to start or perform at an All Pro level from the get go. It does take time for some players to fit in to a new system. I learned that lesson when I criticized McCoy and Stocker in year one and two in their earlier years. Go Bucs! We’re competitive now to make the Playoffs!

    Having a legitimate two TE offense is going to be amazing. Especially when both are a threat to catch the ball and Howard being a great blocker will add another dimension. The Defense will have to cover him, and Brate should be able to get freed up even more. But clearly Howard will be a receiving threat so it is like getting another big tall fast receiver and a blocker with one pick. We have strengthened our receiving corps and added a blocker with one pick.

    Cameron Brate has been such a great find for Jason Licht and the scouting staff. In spite of Brate’s success, O.J. Howard was the player I most coveted in this past Draft. I never thought he’d get past the top ten. Thankfully desperate teams reached for the QB’s. Looking forward to seeing them both giving defensive coordinators fits.
