11. Breshad Perriman, WR, TB
Perriman will understandably face his share of skepticism – it was less than two years ago that the WR-needy Ravens cut Perriman in training camp – but he flourished in the final five games in 2020 while serving as Tampa Bay's lead receiver in light of injuries to Mike Evans and Chris Godwin. He saw 37 targets in those games, catching 25 for 506 yards and five touchdowns, which makes him a former first-round pick with a recent history of breakout production. Robby Anderson is the presumed top free agent wide receiver after A.J. Green, but Perriman is still a candidate to get the bigger contract. Given that Anderson has multiple years of solid production, though, it's probably correct to identify Perriman as the more risky signing between the two. If Perriman's market is worse than Anderson's, then perhaps Perriman's lower price tag would make him within the budget of more teams than in Anderson's case. There's a chance that the Buccaneers might be among that group.
