Here are some things you should know about running back Jeremy McNichols and defensive tackle Stevie Tu'ikolovatu, the Buccaneers' final two selections of the NFL draft:
TAMPA — The goal still is written on a grease board in Jason Licht's office. The Bucs general manager left it there after a meeting several months ago as a constant reminder that his team had a need for speed.
TORONTO — The result obviously wasn't what the Rays wanted Saturday in a 4-1 loss to the Blue Jays, but there was some good in the circumstances, as Matt Andriese spared the worn-out bullpen by working seven innings and Steven Souza Jr.'s left hand was only bruised and not broken after being hit by a pitch.

Based on the Neil Gaiman novel, American Gods traces the brewing battle between the gods of the past and the new gods of technology and progress. Ricky Whittle (The 100) plays Shadow Moon, an ex-con released early from prison to bury his dead wife (Emily Browning). Along his journey home he meets Mr. Wednesday (Ian McShane), a modernized form of the Norse god Odin who's recruiting old gods for the coming battle. Shadow quickly becomes the innocent bystander in the clash between holy beings and struggles to even comprehend what's happening around him.
