Chris Owusu WR TB 5 Days

Mike Evans started over Owusu in Saturday's preseason game against the Dolphins, FOX Sports 1's Jenna Laine reports.

Owusu is listed as a starter on the depth chart, but Evans has always been expected to get the nod come Week 1. The Bucs apparently have an aversion to putting rookies at the top of the depth chart, as second-round tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins is listed fourth at his position. While Owusu doesn't figure to beat out Evans, it probably means something that he -- and not another player -- is listed ahead of the rookie on the depth chart. The Bucs have no obvious No. 3 wide receiver, and Owusu is one of the options, according to ESPN's Pat Yasinkas, who also mentions undrafted rookie Robert Herron and nominal tight end Tim Wright. The trio combined for two receptions and nine receiving on five targets Saturday, with Owusu registering just a target.

Coach Lovie Smith continued to throw praise in WR Chris Owusu's direction this week.

"Chris Owusu has been pretty good from day one," Smith said. "He's one that has caught my attention from the first minicamp all the way through." Smith pointed to Owusu last month at voluntary workouts as a player that was catching his eye. The former UDFA out of Stanford will compete with Robert Herron and other for the No. 3 job behind Vincent Jackson and Mike Evans this summer.

Coach Lovie Smith has been impressed with WR Chris Owusu early on.

"He has good size, excellent speed and I've been impressed with how he has caught the football," Smith said. "He's a guy that you do notice. He's running good routes, he's caught the ball well and he's done some good things." After the Mike Williams trade, Owusu appears to be the leader in the clubhouse for No. 2 duties. However, it's safe to say the Bucs will be adding to their receiving corps. Owusu is 6-foot-2, 200 pounds with 4.36 wheels.

Owusu was the league's highest-paid practice squad player. The Stanford product ran a 4.36 at 6'2/200 at the Combine and would have been drafted in 2012 if not for concussion issues. Owusu is an immediate candidate to contribute as a third wideout with Kevin Ogletree cut.
