Bucs receive two compensatory picks




      Here's a reason for Bucs fans to watch both days of the NFL draft.

     Tampa Bay was awarded two seventh-round compensatory picks Monday - the 35th and 36th selections in the seventh round. That's number 245 and 246 overall if you're scoring at home.

    What did the Bucs do to deserve such a windfall? They lost Dexter Jackson, Jameel Cook and Todd Steussie to free agency while netting only Jamie Winborn in return.

    The Bucs now enter the NFL draft with nine picks - including a third of them in the seventh round. Live it up.
