In recent years, the NFL has allowed Day 3 of the NFL Draft to be fun and loose, letting teams have guests to announce their later draft picks.
The Buccaneers will take it to another level this year, having a parrot deliver their fourth-round selection.
Zsa Zsa, a Catalina Macaw, will deliver the lucky player’s name to a person aboard a pirate ship stationed at the Buccaneers’ stadium. While it’s not as cool as the parrot actually saying the name, it’s something … different.
Some of the other special guests for Day 3 of the draft include students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School announcing for the Dolphins and the U.S. Curling team, which won gold at the 2018 Winter Olympics, announcing for the Vikings.
