Coach: Jon Embree

1. The group performed well during spring workouts.
Catching passes is only half of a tight end's job, but the group, as a whole, looked sharp during OTAs and mini-camp. Austin Seferian-Jenkins had his best days as spring workouts came to a close while Brandon Myers and Luke Stocker both were fluid running routes and catching passes.

2. Austin Seferian-Jenkins is another big target for the Bucs' offense.
Depth charts have not been released and there is no "starter" for any position at this point. But should Seferian-Jenkins win the spot, he would be the third 6-5 pass-catcher defenses will have to account for, along with Mike Evans and Vincent Jackson.

3. Tim Wright is a dangerous receiver.
Wright will undoubtedly battle Seferian-Jenkins and the other tight ends for the starting spot during training camp. Throughout his first two years in the league, he's proven to be a dependable receiver; Wright averages more than 10 yards per catch since enterring the league and has found the end zone 11 times.

4. Brandon Myers adds experience to the group.
During his six seasons in the NFL, Myers has made 48 starts, the most of any tight end on the Bucs' roster. In 2012 and 2013 he was a full-time starter for the Raiders and Giants, respectively.
