To hardcore NFL fans, it is a four-month long celebration culminating with their favorite team making seven picks – give or take a few – over a three-day weekend in April.
And for NFL websites and publications, it a four-month long bonanza of mock draft debate and chatter, filled with smokescreens, hidden messages, players rising and falling, and a lot of luck to even get a few of the picks right.
For NFL front offices, the pressure is on, and those “sources” we have built over the years become suddenly tight lipped.
Below is a list of Bucs picks from the latest mock drafts.
