With the No. 1 overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, the Los Angeles Rams select Cal QB Jared Goff.

Phil Sheridan ESPN Staff Writer 

Worth noting: Goff and Wentz have same agents. Eagles likely knew for sure they could get Wentz. #PHIPick

Chris Fallica ESPN Staff Writer 

Carson Wentz would be the highest selection from North Dakota State. The Bison have had 3 2nd round picks, most recently Phil Hansen in 1991.

Matt Bowen ESPN Staff Writer 

Pocket mobility and vision. Those are two keys to Jared Goff's game. Add in the quick release and the high-level football IQ. There should be an expected transition process with Goff moving into the Rams' pro-style offense, but this club needed a major boost at the position. Run the ball, play defense under Gregg Williams and reduce the stress on Goff as a rookie.

KC Joyner ESPN Insider 

Jared Goff hit on only 4 of the 7 Parcells Rules for drafting QBs, but could have hit all seven if he had stayed for his senior year.

The Rams do indeed select Cal's Jared Goff at No. 1. Eagles are on the clock. They didn't trade five picks for anything but a QB. Believe that Carson Wentz is about to hear his name called.

Nick Wagoner ESPN Staff Writer 

No surprise, the Los Angeles Rams selected Cal quarterback Jared Goff with the first pick in the 2016 NFL draft. A few things the Rams really like about Goff: his ability to maneuver in the pocket, his ability to take hits and continue to produce under pressure and how he takes care of the ball (especially in the red zone).

Mike Tomlin and Kevin Colbert will address Steelers media in a few hours after making the 25th pick, or later.

Jeff Dickerson ESPN Staff Writer 

The Bears are prepared in the event multiple trades occur before they pick at No. 11. "We have more than 11 names right now....that we're prepared to go with," Bears GM Ryan Pace said.

Phil Sheridan ESPN Staff Writer 

There shouldn't be any shocks for the Eagles in tonight's draft. The shocks came when they traded from 13 to 8 and 8 to 2 in the first round.

Todd McShay ESPN Senior Writer 

I think Myles Jack, once thought to be a potential top-five pick, goes between picks No. 12 and 17 due to concerns over his knee injury.

David Newton ESPN Staff Writer 

Panthers general manager Dave Gettleman won't be here to discuss his first-round pick for about three hours ... assuming he doesn't trade up or out of the first round. Out would be the more likely scenario, but that doesn't seem likely. I still like the odds of him picking a DE or DT.
