The first round of the NFL draft was held Thursday night.
FOX's Chris Hoenig reports:
(NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell) "With the first pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, the Los Angeles Rams select Jared Goff, quarterback California."
Cal quarterback Jared Goff the first-overall pick by the L.A. Rams in Thursday's first round of the NFL Draft on ESPN. Talking with the NFL Network beforehand, Goff said he hoped this would be the case when the Rams traded with the Titans for the top pick:
(Goff) "Very excited, it was an exciting time. You know, I had an idea something like that was going to happen pretty soon and it did, it was very exciting."
North Dakota State qb Carson Wentz went number two to the Philadelphia Eagles, followed by a pair of Ohio State players: Defensive end Joey Bosa to the San Diego Chargers at number three, and the Dallas Cowboys using the fourth-overall pick on running back Ezekiel Elliott.

It wasn't the best night for one player at the NFL Draft on Thursday.
FOX's Tom Graham explains:

Tunsil says his Twitter account was hacked, but the damage was done. He had to wait until 13:
(NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell) "The Miami Dolphins select Laremy Tunsil."
The draft on ESPN. This Twitter post may end up costing Tunsil plenty of green as many other teams took a pass over worries of more off-field antics.
