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.
#UCLA RB/WR Demetric Felton is a true swiss army knife. He will help an NFL team in a variety of ways.
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.
