2017

2016

Seferian-Jenkins teased his potential with a 110-yard, two-TD Week 1 performance last season. And by Week 3 was on the shelf again, this time with a shoulder injury that kept him out the next 10 weeks. He returned for the final five games but played limited snaps, never catching more than three passes, though he scored twice. In two seasons, the 2014 second-round pick has played 16 games thanks to injuries. Seferian-Jenkins is among the league's most physically gifted tight ends with a size (6-5, 260) and speed (4.56 40) combination that, maybe, three or four others can match. And he's in a potentially explosive offense with a coordinator, Dirk Koetter, who has a history of featuring the position and a trio of young playmakers in quarterback Jameis Winston, running back Doug Martin and wide receiver Mike Evans. To make that a quartet, though, Seferian-Jenkins must stay healthy for once. Former practice squad player Cameron Brate impressed last season in a limited capacity in Seferian-Jenkins' absence, climbing the depth chart to be this year's backup as he developed a good rapport with Winston. He could potentially steal some targets, but the job is Seferian-Jenkins' to thrive in, if he can just stay on the field.

2015

Seferian-Jenkins' rookie season started slowly with an ankle injury Week 1 that cost him the next two games. Then his season ended early with a back injury Week 12. Weeks 4-11, though, he showed potential with 4.5 targets a game and two touchdowns, both in the red zone. Seferian-Jenkins has soft hands, an 80-inch wingspan and great athleticism (he played D1 college basketball). Alongside Vincent Jackson and Mike Evans, he gives the Bucs a trio of 6-5 receivers who should create mismatches every week. Seferian-Jenkins may be poised for a Year 2 breakout as the third option in a passing game that should be much more aggressive this season under new offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter. Koetter's use of the tight end, though, has been mixed. All-time great Tony Gonzalez was heavily involved in Atlanta, but Marcedes Lewis was only moderately involved while Koetter was in Jacksonville. The quarterbacks in those two stops made a huge difference, of course. And that likely will be the key this year, too. Rookie quarterback Jameis Winston's development might determine just how far Seferian-Jenkins goes in 2015.

2014

A second-round pick in the May draft, Seferian-Jenkins won the John Mackey Award as the nation's top collegiate tight end in 2013. He is Washington's all-time leading receiver at the position and also played basketball for the Huskies. An athletic receiver with soft hands, Seferian-Jenkins is a big target at 6-5, 260, and could be a weapon in the red zone, though he might not have enough straight-ahead speed to take advantage of seam routes. He will have competition for targets in Tampa Bay from Brandon Myers, who had 79 receptions in 2012 with the Raiders, and signed with the Bucs in March along with Luke Stocker, to a lesser degree. Seferian-Jenkins' blocking skills, though, make him the most complete tight end of the group and give him a clear advantage for playing time, as coach Lovie Smith said this offseason that blocking is a priority at the position this year.
