The first round of the 2016 NFL Draft is over and done with and it threw up it's fair share of shocks and surprises.
We saw five draft day trades, Laremy Tunsil drop due to a video leak just hours before the draft and as expected, Jared Goff and Carson Wentz go with the first two picks.
There were teams who left the first round with a lot of unanswered questions still looming around them like the New York Jets who had been expected to draft a quarterback but instead took a linebacker.

As for the Super Bowl Champion Denver Broncos, their quarterback struggles have been well documented this off-season.
They lost Peyton Manning to retirement, Brock Osweiler to the high paying Houston Texans and the only man they've been able to bring in is Mark Sanchez.
Tonight they changed that though when Denver who were supposed to be drafting with the 31st pick, made a trade with their Super Bowl rivals of two years ago the Seattle Seahawks to pick 26th.
Denver used their advanced choice to take Memphis quarterback Paxton Lynch who had been expected to go around the mid- teens.
Lynch had been linked with the Jets, the Cleveland Browns and New Orleans Saints but he will now be linking up with the Super Bowl champions.
Many analysts feel that Lynch is still one year away from being NFL ready so could we see Sanchez take the reigns in Denver for the 2016 season?
A Western battle
The AFC West is set to be one of the more competitive divisions in the NFL this year with the Broncos set to challenge the Kansas City Chiefs, Oakland Raiders and San Diego Chargers for the divisional title.
The Chiefs finished last season on an 11-0 record before losing in the play-offs while the Raiders are primed for their first return to the play-offs in over 10 years.
San Diego however will be hoping for a better year next year after a string of injuries in 2015 de-railed their season.
