Raymond Calais
22-Year-Old Running BackRB
2020 Fantasy Outlook
Calais comes to the Buccaneers via Louisiana-Lafayette, where he averaged 9.3 and 7.6 yards per carry, respectively, over his last two college seasons. As if those figures weren't sufficient corroboration of his abilities in space, he added 2,493 kickoff return yards and two touchdowns over his four college campaigns, the fourth-highest tally in all of college football during that stretch. Coach Bruce Arians has already talked up the rookie as a potentially explosive weapon capable of filling multiple roles from the onset of his career, so Calais could get a relatively long look in training camp and the preseason. Nevertheless, as a seventh-round pick, Calais will certainly have to earn his roster spot, and he'll have plenty of competition in the form of incumbents Dare Ogunbowale and T.J. Logan (thumb), two other backs with kick-return skills. Read Past Outlooks

Could have multiple roles
RBTampa Bay Buccaneers
April 26, 2020
Calais, whom the Buccaneers selected in the seventh round of the 2020 draft, could slot into both change-of-pace and returner roles during his rookie season, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports. "[He's] a joystick," coach Bruce Arians said of Calais. "He's one of those guys who runs a 4.33. He's a running back/receiver/kick returner that's just one of those guys I love to play with. I think both (along with third-round pick Ke'Shawn Vaughn) of those guys are gonna find a role in our ballclub."
