A look back at the first round of the 2016 NFL Draft.

The 2016 NFL Draft has completed the first round, with 31 players selected during the night. The league will now recess the annual selection meeting until 7pm ET on Friday, when the second and third rounds will be held. The first round featured trades, gas masks, and just about everything in between. It was a long crazy night.

We take a look back at all of the picks and trades during the night. The draft started right where we all thought it would, with the Los Angeles Rams picking Cal quarterback Jared Goff, followed by the Philadelphia Eagles adding North Dakota State quarterback Carson Wentz. The drama then started with the fall of Laremy Tunsil, who had a picture of himself with a gas mask and a bong appear on his Twitter account, leading to him falling down the draft board, before the MIami Dolphins picked him with the 13th overall selection.

Throughout the night, several trades occurred, with the summary of selections here:

  • Tennessee Titans send their first-round pick (15th overall, from the Los Angeles Rams), their third-round pick (76th overall), and a 2017 second-round pick to the Cleveland Browns for the eighth-overall pick (from Miami via Philadelphia) and the Browns' sixth-round pick (176th overall).
  • Chicago Bears send their first-round pick (11th overall) and their fourth-round pick (106th overall) to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for their first round pick (9th overall).
  • Houston Texans send their first-round pick (22nd overall) and a 2017 sixth-round pick to the Washington Redskins for their first round pick (21st overall).
  • Denver Broncos send their first-round pick (31st overall) and their third-round pick (94th overall) to the Seattle Seahawks for their first-round pick (26th overall).
  • San Francisco 49ers send their second-round pick (37th overall), their fourth-round pick (105th overall), and their sixth-round pick (178th overall) to the Kansas City Chiefs for their first-round pick (28th overall).
