While the jury will deliberate for some time on whether the Bucs scored with first-round selection Tristan Wirfs, no one will doubt their first-round announcement was among the most powerful of the night.

Helping introduce commissioner Roger Goodell’s announcement ― virtually of course ― were U.S. military personnel from MacDill Air Force Base currently stationed in Qatar. They included members of the 28th Expeditionary Air Refueling Squadron.

The clip featured soldiers brandishing Bucs flags on bikes, atop military vehicles and out the windows of a medical bus.

Moments later, Goodell announced that the Bucs had made Wirfs the fourth offensive tackle picked in the first 13 selections.
