The slew of talented Ohio State players could make for college teammates going in back-to-back picks in the top 10. Here's a bar bet for you — can you name the last three times that has happened in the draft? (Clue: Two involved the Bucs.)

In 2014, Texas A&M's Jake Matthews (Falcons) and Mike Evans (Bucs) went 6-7, in 2013, Alabama's Dee Milliner (Jets) and Chance Warmack (Titans) went 9-10, and in 2010, Oklahoma's Gerald McCoy (Bucs) and Trent Williams (Redskins) went 3-4.

You might not want the Bucs involved in such a back-to-back occurrence — aside from McCoy, it has happened two other times with the Bucs — Tennessee's Charles McRae in 1991 and Alabama's Eric Curry in 1993. Neither turned out particularly well.
