NFL Round 1 Winners and Losers

Winners
-Denver gets their QB of the future in Paxton Lynch (Does this mean Mark Sanchez is the starter for the Bronco's this year?)
-Ezekiel Elliott goes to Dallas and as a three down back lands in perhaps the best place. Easy to see Darren McFadden becoming the backup behind Elliott sooner rather than later.
-JAX Defense with Jalen Ramsey
-Brown's got a lot of draft picks with two smart trades to move down and still got a good WR in Corey Coleman


Losers
-NYG with a reach at 10 to take CB Eli Apple. I think they were ambushed when CHI and TEN moved up in the draft and took their favourites.
-Laremy Tunsil dropped in the draft spots due to a picture posted on social media 10 minutes before the draft. Obviously this young man had someone out to sabotage his draft value.
-SF in not getting Paxton Lynch...not once but twice in the first round. Time will tell but looks like Colin Kaepernick is staying and starting in SF for Chip Kelly.
-Myles Jack and Jaylon Smith went undrafted in the first round due to injuries.

LA Rams Grab Headlines With Trade For #1 Pick in 2016

The LA Rams traded up with the Tennessee Titans from 15th to secure the #1 pick overall in the 2016 draft.
Few people left on the planet doubt that they will go after a QB-either Carson Wentz or Jared Goff.

It makes perfect sense to try and get the #1 pick since it creates buzz for the new LA Team (former STL Rams). Plus with a QB choice they are setting to tone for the team for years to come...hopefully a stud. 

The price was pretty steep in terms of draft picks paid: two second round picks and a third round pick this year and a first round and third round in 2017 and the Rams 15th pick this year. The Rams get a fourth and sixth this year and the #1 pick overall this year.
