Tampa Bay Buccaneers rookie wide receiver Deven Thompkins was described by head coach Todd Bowles as quick, fast, and explosive off the ball. He has also "made some good catches," prompting Bowles to want to watch Thompkins continue to learn and perform in camp. (ESPN)

Fantasy Impact:

Thompkins went undrafted in April, but it wasn't for lack of effort. The Utah State product racked up a whopping 1,704 yards and 10 touchdowns as a senior before posting a 4.35 40-yard dash time. Still, Thompkins' ceiling as a rookie is likely the No. 4 wide receiver role, and even then he'll have to compete with Breshad Perriman, Cyril Grayson, Tyler Johnson, Jaelon Darden, Scott Miller, and others this summer.
