Two things the Bucs should be looking for in a wide receiver.EDTShareTweetShareShareBuccaneers Draft Profile: WR Mecole HardmanDale Zanine-USA TODAY SportsSince the Tampa Bay Buccaneers agreed it was time to move on from their relationship with DeSean Jackson, the team is in need of a deep threat who can challenge opposing defenses and open up underneath options for other receivers and tight ends.Yes, Breshad Perriman should be able to help with this. However, if we’re being honest, it’s not the smartest plan to think of him as your team’s lone speed option in 2019. Justin Watson showed some wheels in testing and Bobo Wilson is a known speed threat, but neither man did enough to earn regular rotation last year or even before last year for Wilson.Drafting another speed option is the best chance Tampa Bay has at finding their speed threat for the future. And we’re going to look at one candidate today.MECOLE HARDMAN’S CAREERHardman spent three years in Athens, Georgia as a member of the Bulldogs. He appeared in 33 games and brought in 60 catches for nearly 1,000-yards while averaging 16 yards per catch and scored a total of 13 touchdowns. In addition to his contributions as a receiver, Hardman returned more than 70 punts and kicks with solid return averages in both categories.As a punt returner, Hardman was the one of the best return men in the game coming in at or near the top of the conference in yard categories across the board and taking one back to the house in 2018.PROSSpeed. Hardman is quick and fast. His ability to burn defenders will give him plenty of cushion and his ability to manipulate the space he’s given is going to be one of the factors which determines how his pro career develops.He’s as unpolished as he is fast as a receiver - which might sound like a flaw - but it’s a positive when NFL receiver coaches are dealing with so much athleticism. Whoever gets him first is going to be able to mold him into the receiver he needs Hardman to be.As a punt returner, his speed is going to give coverage teams fits. One solid lane and he’s gone. And he’s really fast.CONSHe’s only played wide receiver for two years, so he’s just starting to learn the position. Again, this can be flipped into a positive if the right coach is paired with him.One side effect is his lack of willingness to absorb contact while catching the ball. He’s going to need to get open for conistent production, so schemes and play-calling are going to have to help him as he develops into a physical receiver - if he ever does.WHY THE BUCCANEERS NEED HIMDeSean Jackson is gone. Breshad Perriman has yet to prove capable as a consistent player in the NFL. Justin Watson and Bobo Wilson are depth and practice squad candidates until proven otherwise.Who doesn’t need speed? Everyone knows Bruce Arians intends to play aggressive. Everyone knows this includes stretching the field looking for home run opportunities. Lock, meet key.WILL IT HAPPENIf Hardman goes in the second-round then probably not. Truth of the matter is the Buccaneers simply have greater needs on their roster to float an early day two pick on Hardman. Now, this being said, any extra second-round picks earned in a trade don’t apply to this policy. Those are extra picks. And extra picks can be spent on really exciting players with more potential than promise. In the third-round, I would be hard pressed to say the Bucs would pass him up. In this situation it would really just depend on who is still waiting with Hardman to be drafted at that point.If Hardman is there in the third and the Buccaneers don’t draft him, then I’m going to be really excited about whomever they do draft if the team felt highly enough about that guy to pass on Hardman. Or will Godwin thrive anyway?"WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections 2016 NFL DraftInjuriesFree AgencyGame FilmWill Tampa Bay’s new offense derail Chris Godwin’s breakout season?New,43commentsOr will Godwin thrive anyway?EDTShareTweetShareShareWill Tampa Bay’s new offense derail Chris Godwin’s breakout season?Kim Klement-USA TODAY SportsThe Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ experiment with DeSean Jackson was a failure. It was a failure for several reasons - quarterback Jameis Winston’s inability to hit Jackson deep with any consistency, and the coaching staff’s inability to scheme more featured short quick passes to Jackson in space where he could use his run-after-the-catch skills. Jackson, even at his age, is still a dynamic, explosive receiver, a do-everything weapon; and the Bucs used him like a one-trick pony.After acquiring Jackson in 2017 on a megadeal in free agency, the Bucs shipped Jackson back to Philadelphia following the 2018 season Lavonte David Jersey , swapping just sixth and seventh round picks to complete the trade. In the process they shed Jackson’s expected $10 million cap hit.But what if the Bucs’ failures to use Jackson run deeper? What if the Bucs never should have signed Jackson in the first place; or needed to?Drafted in the third round of the same year the Bucs signed Jackson, Chris Godwin is, or appears to be, Jackson’s heir apparent heading into the 2019 season. He’s not as fast or explosive as Jackson, but what if I told you their usage rate last season on deep balls was almost identical? According to Football Outsiders’ new Targets Above Expectation (TAE), we can add context to a receiver’s performance and their role in the offense. Based on the data of thousands of games, we can see how often a receiver can be expected to be targeted in the passing game based on the down, distance, and route that they run. Then, you compare that baseline to a receiver’s actual target rate for those same situations. That means we can see what any particular receiver’s role in their offense really is. One example of TAE’s usefulness is Devin Funchess, formerly of the Carolina Panthers. He had one of the best slot TAE in the league last season (4th in NFL), but the Panthers mostly used him on the outside, where he wasn’t nearly as effective (62nd). Thus, TAE can help identify inefficiencies in how team’s utilize certain players.It’s well known that Tampa largely used Jackson on deep balls. And for corner, post, and fly/fade routes - aka the majority of deep ball routes - Jackson and Godwin had nearly identical targets above expectation. In short, Godwin earned deep targets at a similar rate and in a similar high-level fashion as Jackson. For whatever the reasons, Jackson’s role didn’t seem to differ that much from Godwin’s. It appears that Tampa Bay made a shrewd cost-cutting move in offloading Jackson and his salary, and that maybe the last staff with Dirk Koetter and Todd Monken intended for Godwin to replace Jackson this coming season.But that only raises more questions. Don’t get me wrong, Godwin is a good player, but Jackson was on his own level. Why was their usage so similar, and how did Jackson not really provide anything Godwin couldn’t? Is Godwin underrated? Or did the Bucs just not get enough out of Jackson? Maybe a bit of both. Perhaps the scheme to attack downfield was well-designed but also limited Jackson to only what the scheme gave him. Koetter and Monken were let go, and in steps offensive coordinator Byron Leftwich and head coach Bruce Arians. Like Koetter, Arians is known for an aggressive downfield passing attack. But the Bucs also signed speedster Breshad Perriman in free agency, whose primary role appears to be as a deep threat. So what role will Godwin have in the new offense? The good news is that targets above expectation has some predictive qualities; receivers with a good TAE one season generally tend to do well the following season. Maybe this staff can help take Godwin’s game to a new level.
