Here's our live blog. Follow along as we track the 2014 NFL draft and analyze the implications for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. All times in ET.

9:00 PM

It's Mike Evans to the Buccaneers!

8:50 PM

Jake Matthews to the Falcons and the Bucs are on the clock!

8:43 PM

And there goes Khalil Mack to the Raiders. Best guess is the Falcons take Jake Matthews, and the Bucs can grab Johnny Manziel if they want, or Mike Evans or Aaron Donald. 

8:40 PM

The Bills give up two first-rounders and a fourth-round pick to trade up with the Browns, and they take Sammy Watkins. Khalil Mack and Johnny Manziel are falling, and could be the Bucs' top targets at this point. Meanwhile, the Bills gave up way too much to jump up that high in a receiver-heavy draft.

8:30 PM

Here's the first huge surprise of the draft, with Blake Bortles going to the Jaguars. That pushes down Sammy Watkins and Khalil Mack, and either would be an intriguing pick for the Bucs -- or a trade-up target for someone else.

8:20 PM

The Rams take Greg Robinson, the most physically dominant tackle in the draft. Could have been a great fit with the Bucs at guard, but alas. The Jaguars are on the clock, which could be fascinating. 

8:15 PM

And here goes Jadeveon Clowney to the Houston Texans anyway. All that waffling over his 'effort', and he's still the number one player in the draft. Now for the rest of the draft. 

8:11 PM

8:05 PM

And we're off! The Texans are on the clock, fielding calls.

7:38 PM

NFL.com posted all the draft prospects' walkout songs. I don't see nearly enough metal. Teddy Bridgewater thinks he's the greatest. A.J. McCarron has the worst taste in music. Johnny Manziel has his own song, like a boss. 

7:30 PM

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers hold the seventh overall pick, and should be on the clock somewhere between 9:00 and 9:30 PM ET, assuming they don't trade up (or down).
