A pick-by-pick analysis of the first round of the 2016 NFL draft. The Rams, who traded up to the top of the draft to select a quarterback, chose Goff over North Dakota State’s Carson Wentz, who was selected second by the Eagles. Laremy Tunsil dropped down the draft board after a Twitter hack, and that was just the beginning of it. UCLA's Myles Jack fell out of the first round as questions surfaced about his injured knee.

Ezekiel Elliott, Ohio State – Elliott led the nation the past two years with a combined 3,699 yards rushing. He ran for a career-high 23 touchdowns last year.

Comment: Two years ago, DeMarco Murray led the NFL in rushing behind that line. Cowboys see the same potential in Elliott.
