We are just a few days away from the 2015 NFL Draft and the rumours and specualtion are as expected at an all time high.

Whilst the biggest prospect are preparing to learn their NFL fate and the city of Chicago is bracing itself for its first NFL Draft since 1964.

The players, the media and the venue are all ready, but the 32 team general managers may not have it all done just yet.

Each team is preparing their strategy for the first round and there is one team who everyone is looking at closely.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers hold the number one pick overall therefore have the biggest decision to make of anyone.

With every prospect in this years draft to choose from, everyone wants to know what the Buccaneers are planning for Thursday night.

Whilst most feel that former Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston is set to call Tampa Bay home, the Buccaneers general manager has made a shocking revelation.

Bucs GM Jason Licht has revealed that more than once team called him on Sunday to enquire about what would convince the Buccaneers to relinquish the top pick?

Naturally the teams who called will not be disclosed but Licht made a very bold statement:

"Everything is for sale." - Licht on possibly trading away the top pick.

Licht has certainly stirred the pot ahead of the draft but has promised that the price for the number one pick will not be cheap.

Who knows what will happen once the clock starts running on Thursday night but the questions just keep coming ahead of the 2015 NFL Draft.

Trading it all?

The Buccaneers and Tennessee Titans hold the first two picks this year but both are surrounded with trade rumours.

Despite both needing a quarterback and two of the best quarterback prospects available, it wouldn't be a total shock to see both trade away their picks.

The Titans biggest rumour is that they could be perfect to trade with the San Diego Chargers and bring supposedly unhappy franchise quarterback Philip Rivers to Tennessee.
