Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston was likely happy to see that the team brought him new targets in tight end O.J. Howard and wide receiver Chris Godwin with two of their first three picks in the draft.

The team’s group of undrafted free agent additions includes three more targets, including one that Winston has played with in the past. The Buccaneers announced that they have agreed to terms with wide receiver Jesus “Bobo” Wilson, who played with Winston at Florida State for two years that saw him catch 42 passes. Wilson had 88 more catches over his final two years with the Seminoles.

They also agreed to terms with Colorado quarterback Sefo Liufau, who is the cousin of former Bucs quarterback Jack Thompson. He joins Winston, Sean Renfree and Ryan Griffin at quarterback in Tampa.

Southern Illinois defensive end Deondre Barnett, Mississippi State linebacker Richie Brown, Michigan State linebacker Riley Bullough, Arizona linebacker Paul Magloire, Laval tight end Antony Auclair, West Virginia cornerback Maurice Fleming, Eastern Michigan tackle Cole Gardner, Appalachian State safety Alex Gray, Alabama tackle Korren Kirven, Iowa cornerback Greg Mabin, Boise State cornerback Jonathan Moxey and Boise State wide receiver Thomas Sperbeck are the other new additions.

The Bucs waived offensive lineman Ben Gottschalk and tight end Kivon Cartwright to make room for the new arrivals.

  1. Upgrade to watch out for in Tampa is Jeremy McNichols. He’s like Doug Martin – but bigger, faster, and really good at catching the ball; a true gadget guy like Sproles or Reggie Bush.

    With Jay Ajayi tearing it up in Miami, and now Martin and McNichols in Tampa, Boise State is turning into Florida’s NFL franchise running back development squad.

  2. The analogy of comparing McNichols to Sproles and Bush as a ‘true gadget guy’ may be correct. I call these players specialty backs, or change of pace back. They are not every down backs. Looking at the TB running game, all the backs are pretty much the same size and pretty much the same weight. None are the big bruiser type. Martin, who isn’t even singed, is to closet to getting the tuff yardage. That’s my fear, not being able to get the yardage needed to convert 3 and 1 or on goal line situations. I would rather the Bucs drafted that Texas back who is quick and big. Time will tell if the Bucs made the right decision.
