READ: MOCK DRAFT ROUNDUP, 5.0
McShay still believes the Bucs should go for a corner in the first round, but feels that the team should use their mid-round picks to give Jameis Winston more weapons in the passing game.

In 2014, both Mike Evans and Vincent Jackson went over 1,000 yards receiving, becoming the first duo in team history to do so. But Jackson struggled with injuries a year ago, as did Louis Murphy, who was projected as the team’s No. 3 receiver but missed most of the year with a knee injury. McShay believes that a productive slot receiver could be the missing piece to put the Bucs’ offense over the edge.
“They’ve got size, we know that. But maybe a guy that can uncover quickly like a Pharoh Cooper from South Carolina, Leonte Carroo from Rutgers to work the slot and do the dirty work over the middle of the field to handle the quicker throws when the quarterback is looking to get the ball out of his hands. To me, Jameis Winston has good weapons but they can continue to give a young quarterback more weapons.”
