Four days before staging their first practice of training camp, the Bucs have signed all of their draft picks.

Notre Dame right tackle Robert Hainsey — the team’s third-round choice — became the seventh and final draftee to sign, coming to terms on a four-yeal deal, the team announced. Financial details weren’t disclosed.

A starter at right tackle for three seasons with the Irish (and a second-team All-ACC pick in 2020), Hainsey also was seen taking reps at center during the full-squad minicamp in June. He’ll likely also get a look at guard.

“I don’t think there is a position he can’t play,” coach Bruce Arians said during the team’s rookie minicamp in May.

Bucs players begin arriving at AdventHealth Training Center on Friday and Saturday and take the field for the preseason’s inaugural practice on Sunday morning.
