2017 NFL Draft Reaction: O.J. Howard Goes to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers

O.J. Howard was drafted 19th overall by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, providing another weapon for quarterback Jameis Winston to utilize in a revamped Tampa Bay offense. Despite unimpressive collegiate numbers playing in Alabama’s run-heavy scheme, Howard still managed to find himself drafted in the first round. From a fantasy perspective, it’s difficult to put much faith in rookie tight ends. However, Howard should find himself immediately contending for a large percentage of the team’s snaps and should be able to carve out a role in the passing game. The Buccaneers tight ends saw a 20.2 percent target market share. We’ll get to more of that in a minute. But first, we take a comprehensive look at the new Tampa Bay TE, O.J. Howard.
