Top 15 Buccaneers: No. 4

We continue our list of the top 15 Buccaneers with No. 4:

Vincent Jackson, wide receiver

What he did in 2013: With fellow starter Mike Williams missing much of the season with an injury, Jackson was Tampa Bay’s only real receiving threat. Despite drawing heavy coverage, Jackson produced 78 catches for 1,228 yards and seven touchdowns.

Why he’s No. 4 in 2014: Williams was traded to Buffalo in the offseason and he will be replaced in the starting lineup by rookie Mike Evans. That’s an upgrade that should help Jackson. Evans and Jackson are similar in that they’re both big receivers. Evans should take some of the defensive attention away from Jackson. That could result in a big year for the veteran.
