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.

Kenny Clark, DT, UCLA -- The 6-3, 315-pounder finished second for the Bruins in tackles (75), tackles for loss (11) and sacks (six) despite lining up in the interior. Clark also batted down five passes last season.

Comment: Excellent player at UCLA, but it’s amazing that Kenny Clark would come off the board before teammate Myles Jack. Clark strengthens the Packers interior defense.
