NFC offensive rookies to watch: TE Payne Durham, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
With a new quarterback at the helm in Tampa Bay, there is a chance that the Buccaneers might have a step back in 2023, and new starter Baker Mayfield will need all the help he can get to navigate through 2023 unscathed.
A strong WR core is already there for him, but the TE room is weaker and Payne Durham might get a lot of chances to impress in 2023.

As one of the primary weapons at Purdue in 2022, Durham had over 500 receiving yards and 6 receiving touchdowns, as he was a semifinalist for the Mackey Award in college football.
With a safe pair of hands and a secure run blocker, Durham should find his way onto an NFL field very quickly with his profile and should make an instant impact for the Bucs in the NFC.
