Anthony Becht Tight End
Class of 1999
Anthony caught one pass for seven yards in his Tampa Bay debut. The Bucs appear to be using Becht primarly as a blocking tight end, as rookie Alex Smith was the recipient of four passes. The Bucs rushed for over 150 yards as Cadillac Williams made an impressive rookie start.
