CHICAGO (AP) -The final four rounds of the NFL draft are Saturday in Chicago.

Besides scouring the land for obscure picks, NFL teams also bestow an honor on one individual. The final player taken in the draft earns the nickname “Mr. Irrelevant,” so there will be some interest right up until the final pick in the seventh round.

With their first pick Saturday, their 108th overall, Tampa Bay Buccaneers have selected DB Ryan Smith from North Carolina Central. The Buccaneers added UCLA offensive tackle Caleb Benenoch with their fifth round pick, 148th overall. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have selected Oklahoma linebacker Devante Bond with their 6th round pick, the 183rd overall selection. With their second 6th Round pick (197th overall), the Tampa Bay selected Northwestern fullback Dan Vitale.

The Buccaneers have picked CB Vernon Hargreaves III in the first round, pass rusher Noah Spence and kicker Roberto Aguayo in the second round.

Here is the final tally:

1: Hargreaves III (DB)

2: Spence (DL)

2: Aguayo (K)

4: Smith (DB)

5: Benenoch (OT)

6: Bond (LB)
