O.J. Howard has flashed impact through three seasons since Tampa Bay spent a first-round selection on the tight end back in a strong 2017 positional class. However, Howard's trajectory in Year 2 averaging more than 50 yards-per-game and half-a-touchdown per contest was halted by a season-ending injury and 2019 saw Howard's touchdowns flat line to a single end zone trip. Howard offers immense talent upside with Tom Brady under center as the quarterback fueled strong production from Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez at various points of their careers together in New England. Howard's usage and consistency have been limitations to-date with two strong wide receivers in the passing game (Mike Evans and Christ Godwin) plus the Buccaneers retaining Cameron Brate with a long-term contract in 2018, which has since been restructured. Rob Gronkowski's addition softens any Howard breakout potential without an injury. (April 28)
