UB’s Anthony Johnson only needed two seasons to prove himself to be one of, if not the best receiver in Buffalo history. He was expected to be a day two pick by many but slid past the seventh round. The Bucs picked him up as an Undrafted Free Agent.

At Buffalo

After a pair of years in the JUCO ranks, one at Butler Community College and the other at Iowa Western Community College, the wide receiver tore up the Division I ranks when his time came in Buffalo.

After a redshirt season, Johnson compiled 25 touchdowns, nearly 2400 yards and a 17.8 yards per catch average in two years of play. He was unstoppable for much of his career, especially when it came against Mid-American Conference competition. In three games this past year, Johnson have multi-touchdown games against MAC opponents.

Looking Forward

Tampa was not projected to have a huge need for receiver, but they drafted Bowling Green wideout Scott Miller in the sixth round. Johnson will have to beat him out for a shot at making the game day roster.
