Sixth-round pick Robert Herron was the starting slot receiver in the Bucs' third preseason game.
Herron played with the first team, ahead of Chris Owusu and Louis Murphy. He appears to be the favorite to open the season as the No. 3 receiver. The Bucs are expected to use heavy two tight-end formations in their base offense. Herron should see limited snaps. Aug 24 - 12:48 AM

The Bucs are "hoping" sixth-round WR Robert Herron can "emerge" as the team's slot receiver.

Herron (5-foot-9, 193) plays bigger than his size as a former running back and has plus speed (4.48 forty). There isn't much in Herron's way toward playing time. Veterans Louis Murphy and Lavelle Hawkins are options, along with Chris Owusu. But none of the three are very intriguing. Herron can also return kicks.

Bucs signed sixth-round WR Robert Herron to a four-year contract.

Despite size limitations, Herron (5-9, 193) is a physical wideout with 4.48 speed and run-after-catch ability. He should contribute on special teams initially and will compete for the Bucs' slot receiver job.

Bucs selected Wyoming WR Robert Herron with the No. 185 overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft.

Herron (5-foot-8 7/8, 193) is built more like a slot receiver but ran a lot of deep routes for the Cowboys, compiling 152 career catches for 2,030 yards (13.4 YPR) and 20 touchdowns. An early-career tailback, Herron is a physical, tough-to-jam wideout with 4.48 wheels and an explosive 10-foot-5 broad jump. Herron is likely to focus on the slot in the pros, and has the makeup to excel there with sure hands and aggressive run-after-catch ability. We don't like this landing spot from a fantasy standpoint, but Herron will have a chance to contribute quickly in Tampa Bay's thin receiver corps.
