Receivers and Tight Ends: Mike Evans, Vincent Jackson, Louis Murphy, Robert Herron, Solomon Patton, Russell Shepard, Brandon Myers, Austin Seferian-Jenkins, Luke Stocker

Covering all of the Buccaneers’ weapons is a tall order, literally. Their top weapons are as follows: Vincent Jackson (6’5”), Mike Evans (6’5”), Louis Murphy (6’2”), Brandon Myers (6’3”) and Austin Sefarian-Jenkins (6’5”). With that kind of size, Glennon can just throw the ball up and be confident one of his giant targets will catch the ball.

Vincent Jackson is the star of the group, having five 1,000 yard seasons to his credit. He hasn’t been quite as productive this year, but he remains a big-time jump-ball threat. Expect to see Jimmy Smith covering Jackson more often than not.

None of the rest of the Bucs’ group has been especially productive, though Mike Evans has flashed talent. Like Jackson, he excels on jump balls. The Ravens may have trouble finding a cornerback who can handle him, especially if Smith is locked on Jackson.

The Bucs are not strong at tight end, but Austin Seferian-Jenkins has a ton of upside. Brandon Myers gets the majority of the reps, but he is nothing special. He is averaging just 8.2 yards per catch this year.
