If you’re just waking up then you missed the NFL Draft last night with teams and players making, and getting, the infamous ‘call’

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers had the overall number one pick, and they went for quarterback Jamies Winston despite his rather interesting past both on and off the field.

One of those more memorable incidents  that made teams wary of signing him was when he was nabbed allegedly shoplifting crab legs from a shop last year.

But he showed a wicked sense of humour  as his first Instagram post after the draft was confirmed showed him with the biggest plate of crab legs we’ve ever seen celebrating the move.[/embed]

Heisman winner Marcus Mariota went to the Tennessee Titans in the second overall pick.

Elsewhere Dante Flower ended up at the Jaguars as third overall pick, while wideout Amari Cooper was number four and he is being taken on by the Oakland Raiders.

The top five drafts was completed by Brandon Scherff who was signed on by the Redskins.

History was also made last night as Todd Gurley,who’s recovering from a torn ACL before Christmas,was the 10th overall pick for the Rams,and the first running back to be drafted since 2012 in the first round

There was also some shock that Nebraska pass rusher Randy Gregory and La’el Collins were not drafted, with some off-field indiscretions perhaps coming back to haunt them.
