Description: Buccaneers tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins should be on the sleeper watch for next season.
Insight: New Buccaneers offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter praised the talent he has to work with on offense in Tampa Bay and included Seferian-Jenkins. Koetter worked with Tony Gonzalez in Atlanta for two years, so he definitely knows how to incorporate a big, pass-catching tight end. Seferian-Jenkins is 6-foot-5 and 262 pounds with blazing speed. For owners who love to take flier tight ends late in drafts, this might be the best guy to take next season.

Description: The Buccaneers picked tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins with the 38th-overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft.
Insight: Seferian-Jenkins was the second tight end taken after Eric Ebron. Tim Wright caught 54 passes for 571 yards and five touchdowns for Tampa Bay last year, but he's just 6-foot-3 and 220 pounds. The Bucs wanted more beef in the middle of the field and got it in the 6-5, 262-pound Seferian-Jenkins. Tampa Bay selected 6-5 receiver Mike Evans in the first round to pair with 6-5 Vincent Jackson, so Josh McCown is going to have some big targets to throw to in 2014.
