The 2016 NFL Draft has already set history as the Rams have made their first pick as a team from Los Angeles for the first time since 1994.

The Rams traded up to seize the number one overall pick from the Tennessee Titans and with their history making pick, they arguably made the obvious choice.

Jared leading LA

The Rams used the first overall pick on former California quarterback Jared Goff - the move that had been expected of them for several weeks.

Goff will now remain in California and try to usher in a new era of success for the Rams following their huge move back to LA.

Goff was one of the highest ranked prospects in the draft and no-one was really surprised to see NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell call his name first.

Goff - who wasn't even born the last time the Rams played in LA will now suit up alongside the likes of runningback Todd Gurley and wide receiver Tavon Austin to try and bring a division title to LA.

The announcement of Goff to LA practically secured the that the second pick from the Philadelphia Eagles would be former North Dakota state quarterback Carson Wentz.

Wentz was the second pick and will now head to Philadelphia and enter the quarterback controversy with Sam Bradford who recently demanded a trade away from the team.

Bradford was rumoured to want a trade once the Eagles traded with the Cleveland Browns for the second overall pick.

Can Bradford and Wentz co-exist in Philadelphia? Or will Bradford be somewhere else once the season starts?

Big shock in Chicago!

The first big shock of this year's draft came from the San Diego Chargers with the third overall pick who had been expected to select offensive tackle Laremy Tunsil.

The Chargers threw a curve ball however and drafted defensive end Joey Bosa from Ohio State and completely changed everyone's predictions about the next few picks.
