Austin Seferian-Jenkins is starting to turn potential into reality.
The Bucs’ second-year tight end has been healthy in camp, showcasing the skills that made him a second-round draft pick out of the University of Washington. He suffered through typical rookie growing pains last fall, when injuries and erratic focus helped limit him to only 21 receptions.
“We’ve talked about Austin since he got here, what his potential will be,’’ Bucs coach Lovie Smith said. “Every day he’s on the field, he confirms that more. There’s not a whole lot to dislike about Austin — we have big plans for him.’’
Seferian-Jenkins seems to be getting a lot of hype this offseason, despite being in an offense with Jameis Winston, Vincent Jackson and Mike Evans. Seferian-Jenkins sure could get lost around talent like that, which could be a good thing for fantasy owners. The story didn't go into a lot of detail about the plans, but we can conclude he should see a lot of space in the middle of the field with the talent at WR, so there's upside for owners. If you're going to wait at the position, or want a high-end TE2 for your roster, he could be your guy.
