Beware, Tampa Bay fans, your team's hair game just went up big time.

With the 162nd pick on the final day of the 2015 NFL Draft, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers chose Nebraska Cornhuskers Wide Receiver Kenny Bell in the Fifth Round.

Bell, who originally came from Boulder, Colorado and Fairview HS, is the son of former Denver Broncos Running Back Ken Bell, who was in the NFL for 4 seasons.

Bell was a mid-level 3 star out of Fairview HS, who committed to Nebraska over schools like Arizona, Arizona State, Colorado, and other FBS schools.

As a Wideout in Lincoln, Bell took over the school career lead in both receptions (181) and yards (2,689). He holds three Sophomore WR records in catches (50), yards (863), and touchdowns (8). He is also the first Husker WR to catch at least 30 balls in all four seasons of eligibility.

While at Nebraska, the 6' 1", 185 pound wideout made a big difference in not only catching the ball, but excelling on Special Teams as well. He holds the fifth longest KR for a TD with his 99 yard return vs. Penn State in 2013.
