Jameis Winston offered unlimited crab legs to come to Tampa

The 2015 NFL Draft is this Thursday night and all the intrigue is surrounding the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and who they will draft with the first overall pick.

It has been the question on everyone's mind for several months now but it would appear that almost everyone has their pick for who will go number one.

Just when all the mock drafts think they have the first pick nailed, New York Jets general manager Mike Maccagnan claims that he will be calling the teams who have picks 1-5 to gauge interest in a trade.

No-one can really tell what will happen when the draft rolls into Chicago for the first time on Thursday, but it will surely throw everyone a few surprises. 

Quarterback from Florida State and ever controversial player Jameis Winston is largely expected to go to Tampa and one local business have made a final pitch for him to be excited over a future in Florida.

Whether he is in attendance at the Draft or not, Winston is certainly the favourite to go number one overall, and he has been made a very interesting promise if he ends up in Tampa.

There is a restaurant in Tampa called Skipper's Smokehouse which is famous for their crab legs.

The restaurant has reached out to the potential first round pick and promised to 'hook him up' with all the crab legs he can eat if he is drafted to Florida.

Of course there is a prior connection between Winston and crab legs with them being the focus of Winston's shoplifting story.

The offer may have been made to poke fun at the man who could be leading the Buccaneers next season but it certainly seems like a generous offer.

If taken number one to Tampa, Winston probably wouldn't need free food with him set to become a multi- millionaire, but doubt he'd say no to free food.

A big night

This year's draft has already accumulated a lot of intrigue from everyone with even teams who hodl lower placed picks creating headlines.

The most notable teams to watch could prove to be the Jets, Philadelphia Eagles and perhaps even the Cleveland Browns who made all the headlines in the first round last year.

If Winston goes first, all eyes will then fall to Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota with several teams rumoured to be lining up to draft him.
