All in: Bucs sign final draft pick in FSU's Roberto Aguayo

The Bucs coveted Roberto Aguayo enough that they traded away a fourth-round pick to move up 15 spots into the second-round to draft him.

The Bucs coveted Roberto Aguayo enough that they traded away a fourth-round pick to move up 15 spots into the second-round to draft him.

The Bucs have now signed all seven of their 2016 draft picks, wrapping up the class Tuesday as former FSU kicker Roberto Aguayo, the second of Tampa Bay's second-round picks, signed his rookie contract.

Financial terms weren't disclosed, but as the No. 59 overall pick in the draft, Aguayo is slotted to make $4.05 million over four years, including a $1.15 million signing bonus.

The Bucs have cut their other kickers, Connor Barth and Patrick Murray, leaving Aguayo as the only kicker on roster. They coveted Aguayo enough that they traded away a fourth-round pick to move up 15 spots into the second-round to draft Aguayo, making him the highest-drafted kicker in team history.

Aguayo was the last draft pick to sign, but had attended all of the team's voluntary workouts this offseason. The team's mandatory minicamp is Tuesday-Thursday next week, then there are no team workouts until training camp starts the last week in July.
