2020 Outlook
Depth Chart
It's a bit difficult to know who will emerge as the third option in the Bucs' passing game. Breshad Perriman filled the role in 2019 with a fair amount of success, but he signed with the Jets this offseason. That leaves Justin Watson, who had a few nice moments in 2019, the rookie Tyler Johnson and slot player Scotty Miller. My money is on Watson.

There are a few reasons for that. First, he is an athletic freak. He played at Penn, so he didn't get much recognition, nor did he get invited to the Combine. But at his pro day, he raised many eyebrows, running the 40-yard-dash in 4.42, benching 225 pounds 20 times, and posting a 40-inch vertical jump. He showed that he has elite athleticism, and could excel at the pro level if given a chance.

Second, he can play the slot or outside. He played 38% of his snaps in the slot, and has the size to play outside at 6'3", 213 pounds. Many like Miller, but he is purely a slot player. Since Godwin prefers to run routes from the slot, Watson is more likely than Miller to play when they are in 11 personnel (3 wide receivers), so that Godwin has the flexibility to play either in the slot or outside.

Finally, many are talking up Tyler Johnson, but he is a raw rookie and will need time to learn the pro game. I don't see him making an impact this season.

In limited chances last season, Watson flashed potential. In the final four games, during which Mike Evans was mostly out with injury, he posted 14 receptions for 146 yards and 2 touchdowns. If he can develop a rapport with Brady early, he could be a waiver wire darling early in the season.
