Bucs WR Chris Owusu secured 2-of-2 targets for 20 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's Week 1 loss to Carolina.

He's clearly the Bucs' No. 3 receiver, ahead of rookie Robert Herron. Owusu runs in the 4.3-4.4 range and caught a 19-yard dart from Josh McCown for his score. Owusu could become something of a deep sleeper if something happened to Mike Evans or Vincent Jackson, but he's roughly at WR6 at the moment.

Bucs WR Chris Owusu says he's "preparing as if he's the starting slot receiver" for Sunday's Week 1 game versus Carolina.

Vincent Jackson and rookie Mike Evans are locked in as Tampa Bay's two-wide set. The team's website suggests the Bucs' third receiver will either be Owusu, Louis Murphy, or rookie Robert Herron. Whoever it is may still not be heavily involved on offense. With Austin Seferian-Jenkins and Brandon Myers at tight end, Tampa Bay is going to predominately be a "12 personnel" team.

Coach Lovie Smith continued to throw praise in WR Chris Owusu's direction this week.

"Chris Owusu has been pretty good from day one," Smith said. "He’s one that has caught my attention from the first minicamp all the way through." Smith pointed to Owusu last month at voluntary workouts as a player that was catching his eye. The former UDFA out of Stanford will compete with Robert Herron and others for the No. 3 job behind Vincent Jackson and Mike Evans this summer.

Coach Lovie Smith has been impressed with WR Chris Owusu early in the Bucs' offseason program.

"He has good size, excellent speed and I’ve been impressed with how he has caught the football," Smith said. "He’s a guy that you do notice." After the Mike Williams trade, Owusu appears to be the leader in the clubhouse for No. 2 duties. However, it's safe to say the Bucs will be adding to their receiving corps via the draft. Owusu is 6-foot, 200 pounds with 4.36 wheels.

Bucs WR Chris Owusu caught three balls for 21 yards in Tampa Bay's Week 15 loss to San Francisco.
