The Buccaneers' receiving corps looked like one of the team's greatest weaknesses heading into the draft, but GM Mark Dominik told PFW he feels much better about it after drafting WRs Arrelious Benn and Mike Williams. "(The) media (in Tampa) publicly was very concerned about (the receiving corps)," Domink said. "I said 'Let's just look at this team once we go to training camp. I think then you can judge the receiving corps.' I think (Benn) was one of the best run-after-the-catch receivers in the draft in terms of yards after contact. ... (Syracuse head coach) Doug Marrone even told me, 'You guys are doing more work than anybody on Mike Williams.' The kid is just so talented I thought he was worth the extra time. I was very excited to get those weapons for (QB) Josh (Freeman)." Dominik told reporters the Bucs don't plan to add any more receivers in free agency.
