Bucs Going To Draft A Rams-Like Receiver?

It appears that the Buccaneers, under new offensive coordinator Liam Coen, may be transitioning towards a style of offense reminiscent of Sean McVay’s approach with the Los Angeles Rams. In this type of offense, smaller, shifty receivers who excel in route-running and yards after the catch (YAC) are highly valued.


Malachi Corley, a receiver from Western Kentucky, fits the profile of the type of receiver that could thrive in this system. Despite his relatively modest height at 5-10, Corley possesses a compact and powerful build at 215 pounds, which allows him to break tackles and excel in generating yards after the catch. His explosive burst and ability to create separation downfield make him a valuable asset in the passing game.


Emory Hunt, a respected analyst, has ranked Corley as the No. 2 slot receiver in the draft due to his impressive skill set. Corley’s strong performance during Senior Bowl practices further enhances his appeal to teams like the Buccaneers.


While Corley may be projected as a second-day pick, possibly in the third round, his potential impact could exceed expectations, especially in a receiver-rich draft class. Considering the contractual situations of Mike Evans and Chris Godwin, who are both key receivers for the Buccaneers, it wouldn’t be surprising if the team considered drafting a receiver like Corley to bolster their offensive arsenal.


Corley’s fearlessness in initiating contact and his willingness to overpower defensive backs make him an intriguing prospect that could complement the Buccaneers’ receiving corps effectively.
