We’re here to get you ready for exactly that.What:2019 NFL DraftWhere:Nashville, TennesseeWhen:Thursday (Round 1) - 8:00 p.m. ESTFriday (Rounds 2-3) - 7:00 p.m. ESTSaturday (Rounds 4-7) - 12:00 p.m. EST*All rounds can be viewed on NFL Network, ABC, and ESPN*Who:Odd question, right?

Seattle Seahawks (via Kansas City Chiefs)30.) Green Bay Packers (via New Orleans Saints)31.) Los Angeles Rams32.) New England PatriotsRemaining Buccaneers PicksThe Buccaneers also have the following selections;Round 2 - 39th overallRound 3 - 70th overallRound 4 - 107th overallRound 5 - 145th overallRound 6 - 208th overall (via Philadelphia Eagles)Round 7 - 215th overallPlayers To Watch ForThe Buccaneers - well, more specifically, Bruce Arians - said that there are six “generational” players they could take which would make it difficult to trade out of their spot at number five. In fact, he came out and said a team would have to back up a Brinks truck to get the pick. Let’s take a second to figure out who those six are (in no particular order);SB Nation FanPulse voters say the best player in the draft is ... Nick BosaQuinnen Williams, DT, Alabama - Arguably the best player in the draft. Unlikely to fall to the Bucs, but a slam dunk pick if he does. Immediate replacement (and arguable upgrade) over Gerald McCoyNick Bosa, EDGE, Ohio State - Another guy unlikely to fall to them, but an immediate impact guy that will make life a living hell for Matt Ryan, Cam Newton, and Drew Brees for the forseeable future.Devin White, LB, LSU - An elite player at a position of desperate need for the Bucs. Can do everything from rush the quarterback, to drop in coverage, to stalk ball carriers sideline to sideline. Will make fans quickly forget about Kwon Alexander.Ed Oliver, DT Warren Sapp Jersey , Houston - Another elite level player that is, quite frankly, a freak of nature. For someone his size (6’2”, 290) he has incredible strength, speed, and mobility. Lining him up next to Vita Vea for the next eight to ten years would be a complete nightmare opposing offensive coordinators.Josh Allen, EDGE, Kentucky - The reigning defensive player of the year, Allen emerged as a sack machine. The hesitation may lie in the fact that he had one elite year out of his four years with the team, three of which he was a starter. He had more sacks his Senior season than his other three combined. Could he be a dominant force? Absolutely. Could he be just a one year wonder? Well, it wouldn’t be the first time it happened...Devin Bush, LB, Michigan - Bush and White are nearly identical in terms of athleticism and impact they would have on a team, especially this one. Todd Bowles needs a linebacker with the skills that White and Bush possess to effectively quarterback his defense. After they’re drafted, there are no linebackers left that will command the respect they do and be day one starters. Given the position scarcity, it wouldn’t surprise me one bit to know Bush - who you could argue is the most athletic player in the draft - is on Tampa Bay’s short list of elite prospects they want.Final Notes:The draft is always a wild roller coaster ride. Dips, dives, loops, turns - it’s all there. Tonight will be no different. We may see crazy trades to secure sub-par quarterbacks from desperate franchises. We may see players no one expected to go on day one drafted in the top twenty. Plain and simple - with the draft, you just never know what can happen. Enjoy it. Revel in it. Tonight is the night that begins new found hope for all 32 franchises that this player will be the catalyst, the anchor, of greatness to come. As for Buccaneers fans, the draft has led to frustration and disappointment at times in recent memory. Hell, dating back to the Jon Gruden days it brought anger and resentment. All I can say is this; trust in this staff. It is not one man that pulls the trigger on these decisions - as much as many of you would like the blame for draft misses to go squarely on the shoulders of Jason Licht - but it is a collective of the scouting Ronald Jones Jersey , evaluation, and belief by the group inside the war room.Months and months of preparation have gone into this. These coaches have evaluated this roster and these prospects and together will decide who to hitch their wagon to. They know the kinds of players, the kinds of men they want in their building. Trust that the Buccaneers have the most competent coaching staff they’ve assembled in over a decade. That these guys calling the shots have a proven track record of success in this league when together and that success will continue in Tampa Bay. The future begins now. The Bruce Arians era officially begins now. Embrace it. It’s gonna be one hell of a ride. The NFL is giving away tickets for the next 100 years to one lucky fan and you’re gonna want this guy to win it all."WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections 2016 NFL DraftInjuriesFree AgencyGame FilmNFL DraftTickets For 100 Years Finalist: Greg HamptonNew,1commentThe NFL is giving away tickets for the next 100 years to one lucky fan and you’re gonna want this guy to win it all.EDTShareTweetShareShareTickets For 100 Years Finalist: Greg HamptonHampton has been a life-long Giants fan.There’s no doubt that family tradition is hard to break, especially when it comes to NFL fandom. Family roots grow deep when it comes to the passion of the game and Greg Hampton’s family is no different. It all started with his father and now he has passed down the legacy of rooting for the New York Giants to his children. And thanks to the NFL, Greg and his family - the ultimate definition of loyal fans - have a shot at season tickets to Giants games for the next 100 years. That’s right. 100 years. A century. 10 generations. Talk about a helluva family tradition. This one is going to be hard to break. For those who aren’t familiar with the contest, the NFL launched the “Tickets for 100 Years” campaign back in the middle of March. Thousands of applicants entered into the contest hoping to win a pair of season tickets to their favorite franchise for the next century and only three were selected. Hampton was one of those three finalists. For Hampton - a youth football coach back home - and his family, this is a dream come true. They’ve been given celebrity-like treatment throughout the past few days. Experiences such as breakfast with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, walking the Red Carpet on Thursday night, a surplus of merchandise from the Giant’s franchise, anda personal letter along with invites to special occasions from the Maras are just a few of the many perks that come with being a finalist. Hampton and his family are all smiles this week.But it doesn’t stop there. Hampton and his family were surprised this morning on the set of Good Morning America with some awesome news: even if they don’t win the contest, they’ll still be awarded a pair of season tickets for the 2019 season. What a time to be alive. Hampton was born and raised in New York after his father migrated from the south. “The first team I ever came in contact with was the Giants,” Hampton told me in an interview. “I guess the meaning of football back then, what it stood for, (my father’s) love for the Giants - it’s what was instilled in me and driven to me at birth. I’ve always been a Big Blue fan as long as I can remember.”One of Hampton’s sons, Jordan, entered his father into the contest via an Instagram post that will absolutely melt your heart. You can check it out hereor below if you want to bawl like a baby. Yea, put the onions away, please. Hampton’s father passed away in 2012, but the legacy he set forth still lives on. He plans on passing the tickets down to his children and for them to do the same if they are indeed the lucky ones to win the whole shebang. “I would love to see my grandkids or great-grandkids live on this tradition. I know that going to Giants games and watching the Giants play will always be a family tradition, but to be able to be there in that moment for the next 100 years is something I can only dream of.” Hampton told me.“I know my dad is smiling down right now. He’d love to see his grandkids go to a Super Bowl.”And it’s not just about Greg, his family has had an incredible experience attending this event and spending time in Nashville is something they’ll always remember and cherish.The winner will be announced in the opening minutes of the NFL Draft. The Draft is set to begin at 8PM EST. Make sure you’re in front of that television set. Even if Greg doesn’t win, this will be a life-changing moment for one lucky fan that you won’t want to miss.
