The 2017 NFL draft concluded Saturday in Philadelphia. Here is a round-by-round recap of the selections.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers select TE O.J. Howard of Alabama with 19th pick

19. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: O.J. Howard, Alabama

Howard didn’t put up huge numbers in college, but he showed up big in the biggest games. In consecutive national championship games against Clemson, he compiled nine receptions for 314 yards with three touchdowns.

Quick take: Instead of taking a running back, the Buccaneers gave Jameis Winston another target. Howard is outstanding blocker and receiver.
