The Bucs selected Minnesota WR Tyler Johnson in the 5th round of the 2020 NFL Draft. Johnson was a monster college producer. He easily led a bad Gophers passing offense in catches (35), yards (677) and TDs (7) as a sophomore in 2017. Then he busted out for a big 78-1,169-12 line the following year, ranking top 21 nationally in all 3 categories. Johnson set new career highs across the board in 2019 with 86 catches, 1,318 yards and 13 TDs. He accounted for 41% of Minnesota’s receptions, 40% of the receiving yards and 42% of the TDs. No WR garnered a higher receiving grade from Pro Football Focus in 2019. Johnson isn’t a high-end athlete but does enough to create separation on short and intermediate routes. He’s excellent in contested situations. And he has experience playing both outside and in the slot. Johnson should have a good shot to win the #3 WR job in Tampa Bay this season, with Scott Miller and Justin Watson as his competition. But even then, he’d struggle for targets behind Mike Evans, Chris Godwin and Rob Gronkowski.
