HC Lovie Smith discussed TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins...
“He's got great size,'' Smith said of quarterback Josh McCown's new 6-foot-7 target. “He can still work on his blocking, but he actually has hands. He's in our plans. You don't have to look real hard to like something the guy has done.”
The 38th overall pick in the 2014 draft, Seferian-Jenkins is still listed fourth on the tight end depth chart behind Brandon Myers, Tim Wright and Luke Stocker heading into Saturday night's home preseason game against Miami.
But on the practice field, a different story is unfolding as Seferian-Jenkins now finds himself working with the first-team offense on a regular basis.
There is opportunity in Tampa given the other tight ends on the roster, but rookie tight ends usually don't make much of a fantasy impact.
