How often have consecutive Top 10 draft picks come from one school?

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.

  1. Rowdies settle for draw at home

    Soccer

    ST. PETERSBURG — The good news for the Rowdies is that they still haven't lost a game at Al Lang Stadium since late April. The bad news is they had to settle for a 1-1 tie against Ottawa on Saturday night in front of 6,710 sweaty fans.

  2. Bats come to life, but Rays' freefall continues (w/video)

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG —The six runs seemed like a ton, just the second time the Rays had scored that many in a game during their numbing two-plus-weeks stretch of offensive impotency, and amazingly, the first time at the Trop in nearly two months.

    Lucas Duda connects for a two-run home run in the sixth, getting the Rays within 7-5. A Logan Morrison home run in the ninth made it 7-6, but Tampa Bay couldn’t complete the comeback.
  3. Rays journal: Cesar Puello, who has one major-league game, claimed off waivers

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — Looking to add punch to their right-handed lineup, the Rays claimed OF Cesar Puello off waivers Saturday from the Angels.

  4. Marc Topkin's takeaways from Saturday's Rays-Mariners game

    The Heater

    SS Adeiny Hechavarria doesn't always look like he's going hard, but he showed impressive reactions Saturday in reversing field to catch a ball that clanked off the catwalk then firing to second to double up Guillermo Heredia on an attempt to tag up.

  5. Bucs journal: Simeon Rice gives master class on sacks to defensive ends

    Bucs

    TAMPA — As the Bucs seek their first 10-sack season from a player since Simeon Rice in 2005, who better to help that cause than Rice himself?

    Former Tampa Bay Buccaneers great Simeon Rice works with defensive end Noah Spence (57) after practice at One Buccaneer Place in Tampa, Fla., on Saturday, Aug. 19, 2017.
