Even in the midst of re-signing their own free agents, the Bucs are still doing their due diligence on NFL Draft prospects. According to The Draft Network’s Justin Melo, the Bucs hosted a virtual meeting with UCLA offensive weapon Demetric Felton.

Felton was a RB/WR hybrid at UCLA, catching 99 passes for 958 yards and eight touchdowns while carrying the ball 233 times for 1,101 yards and seven touchdowns. He impressed at the Senior Bowl, running some pretty clean routes during the receiver drills and showing off his explosiveness.

At 5-9, 189 pounds, Felton projects as a slot receiver who could have returner skills and gadget play ability at the next level. Likely a day three pick, Felton could be on the Bucs radar as a possible third down option out of the backfield, as some teams will still see him as a receiving back who can play in the slot as needed.

I can see him as a 3rd round pick if he’s available for Tampa.

This is a good move aslong as we address Edge, DT & LB first. If we’re looking for RB mid 4th to 5th rd I like Chuba Hubbard OKST. IF we are looking for a RB/KR late I like Pooka Williams KS. Honestly though I would like to see us address C/OG in the 3rd rd, Quinn Meinerz or Moore from Grambling. 1st rd if Edge Phillips MIA or Perkins OK are their or DT McNiel NCST. I’m guessing our GM will have many offers for the 32nd pick and if we don’t have to drop much we will trade… Read more »

We need LB first? That’s one of the few positions we’re set in. And if Suh resigns, I’d even say we need RB before we need DT. A pass catching back who can block, is clearly one of our top needs

Just like any year, we need to see what happens in FA before anyone can say “This is what I wanna see us do in these rounds.” I know we need youth and depth at Edge and Dline and last year I was against a RB at 14 but after watching us this year and seeing RoJo look dynamic as a runner but realizing that we were lacking an entire phase of our game with the short safe dump or bail out route down low, I still wouldn’t have an issue at 32 to see someone like Harris or Williams.… Read more »

Last thing we need is another wr and at 5’9 185 he big enough for weak Pac 12 defenses but will get destroyed in NFL. Bucs need depth at OL Tackle, corner, RB maybe a future qb like Trask

YES, YES, YES, OL need is huge. NOT RB, (See 2020 RB pic from KC, how did that go?) Bucs lose Wirfs, Jenkins, Marpet or Donny, who replaces?!, Watch our RG backup for Cappa in SuperB, weakest link but made it. OT backup remains weakest spot on team, assuming sign Barrett. Go get Rd 1-OT T. Jenkins, and 3rd-C/OG Q Meinerz, then leaves open 2 rd for RB J Williams, or CB Newsome, Molden or Melfonwu…
