2016 NFL Draft: Date, time, schedule, order and more.

The 2016 NFL draft is here! The first round starts at 8:00 p.m. ET, and it should be fun. Trade rumors have been swirling, no one knows which player is going where and everyone's scrambling as teams prepare to make their picks and trade back and forth. Fun!

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers hold the ninth overall pick, and have now been linked to almost every top 15 pick except Ezekiel Elliott and the quarterbacks. I wouldn't be shocked at any move, though the most steadfast projections have focused on Vernon Hargreaves. Leonard Floyd has been a popular pick in recent days, while Noah Spence is a possible trade down target. Jalen Ramsey and Joey Bosa remain options if the Bucs can find a way to trade up.

Stick with us for live coverage of the draft, and we'll keep track of everything that happens for the Bucs, and how it impacts them.

Here's everything you need to watch the draft.
