Buccaneers select OJ Howard in first round of National Football League draft

Buccaneers select OJ Howard in first round of National Football League draft

Here are three quick thoughts on Tampa Bay's selection. The Bucs thus got a coveted boost to their secondary after using their top pick on Alabama's O.J. Howard, the draft's top tight end.

Meanwhile, the Buccaneers are also considering about trading up their 19th overall pick, although there are no rumors about who they are specifically targeting.

Howard has been the big riser of the group since a standout week at the Senior Bowl in front of National Football League executives, scouts and coaches. Considering the targets the Bucs have added, Winston can only be better for it.

"First day of Senior Bowl practice in pads, Jason and I were sitting on the 35-yard line and O.J.is putting on a clinic out there", Koetter said.

Tampa Bay interviewed Joe Mixon in the weeks leading up to the draft, and Licht declined to say whether the Oklahoma running back remains on the team's draft board.

Student In Custody After Bringing Gun To Middle School
There was a scare at a middle school in Mason County today, with reports of a possible active shooter on the campus. Clifford O'Findlay Middle School in North Las Vegas was briefly placed on a lockdown while officers investigated.

Howard is the first SEC tight end taken that early since 2004, when New England selected Georgia's Ben Watson. Sources tell ESPN that Brate's back injury was minor and he's been cleared to participate in the offseason program, and the Bucs are thrilled with his eight touchdown receptions a year ago, which tied for the most TDs by a tight end.

"They could have used defensive help, but they took a player who might be the cleanest in this draft".

Autauga Academy's Headmaster isn't surprised that his former student is going pro.

Rookie tight ends don't generally make an impact. Foster proved he could play on the big stage as well, notching 12 tackles and a sack in the Championship Game loss to Clemson. In 2016, he had four catches for 106 yards and one touchdown. At the top of the charts, you're trying to make sure you don't miss.

As has been discussed already, Howard is one of the most athletic tight ends to come out of college in awhile and it stands to reason that he's going to give the Bucs an added dimension in their passing game.
