Bucs 6th Round Pick: WR Robert Herron

Robert Herron – Wide Receiver – Wyoming

5’9″ 193 pounds – Senior

COLLEGE NOTES:
Started 27-of-42 games he appeared in as a Cowboy, catching 152 passes for 2,030 yards and 20 touchdowns. He split time as a receiver and at running back early in his college career, totaling 54 carries for 310 yards. Tied a school record 4 touchdown receptions in a single game vs Hawaii in 2013. The LA native received All-American Super Sleeper honors (most underrated player at each position) by the NFL Draft Report, as well as All-Mountain West Conference first team accolades.

ANALYSIS:
Herron is projected as a prototypical slot receiver. He is a big-play specialist, possessing exceptional straight-line speed from his track days in high school. Can elude defenders with quick cuts and body control that makes him dangerous in the open field. Is not afraid to go over the middle and absorb hits. Could work on running more crisp routes.

BOTTOMLINE FOR THE BUCS:
In a draft where the Bucs went all offense, Herron provides another potential weapon in the slot. He has a lot of success on verticals, drags, and quick screens, an area where Tampa Bay is looking to expand as part of their offensive game plan. While he does not have much experience on special teams, his speed could also be used as a punt returner.
