Roberto Aguayo signs his contract, completing the Buccaneers draft class

Houston v Florida State - Chick-Fil-A Peach Bowl

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have signed all of their 2016 NFL draft picks: Roberto Aguayo just signed his four-year contract, according to Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times and Scott Smith of Buccaneers.com. The second-round kicker was likely the last pick to sign because there was no precedent for the Bucs to work with in negotiating a contract, even if there isn't a lot of room for negotiation under the league's collective bargaining agreement.

Draft picks Vernon Hargreaves, Noah Spence, Ryan Smith, Caleb Benenoch, Devante Bond and Dan Vitale had signed their contracts earlier this offseason.

The Bucs picked Aguayo at the end of the second round, having traded a high third- and a high fourth-round pick to trade up. The move was heavily criticized at the time, but the team is convinced they got one of the best kickers of all time and think that kind of kicker is worth giving up a lot of picks for. Here's to hoping they're right.
