In arguably one of the best steals of the entire draft, the Bucs landed a speedy slot receiver in the sixth round with Wyoming's Robert Herron.
Despite impressing scouts with a stellar performance during Senior Bowl week, the undersized but quick Herron fell to the Bucs at the 185th overall pick. A player who has overcome his share of hardships off the field, Herron continued his strong offseason by proving to the Bucs' new coaching staff that he could be ready to start in the slot immediately, thanks to his speed, quickness and ability to create separation.
The team could also take advantage of his speed on special teams, having already worked him in as part of the rotation as a return specialist. But no matter his impact on the return game, Herron looks to have the inside track to be the first option from the slot.
Considering that he'll be surrounded by the likes of Vincent Jackson, Mike Evans and Austin Seferian-Jenkins, Herron could have plenty of room to work, both over the middle and down the field.
