Goff/Wentz Go #1,#2 In NFL Draft, Tunsil Slides After Tweet, Broncos Grab Lynch, Hawks Defeat Celtics
To no one’s surprise, the Los Angeles Rams picked QB Jared Goff from the University of California Berkeley as the #1 pick in the NFL Draft. And, again to no surprise, Carson Wentz went #2 to the Philadelphia Eagles. There was a bit of drama in the evening when someone posted a tweet of Ole Miss Offensive Tackle, Laremy Tunsil with a gas mask on smoking something through a tube. Earlier in the week Tunsil was projected to go as one of the top picks but after the tweet came out Thursday night, Tunsil’s prospects kept dropping. On the 13th pick of the night, however, the Miami Dolphins weighed the risks/reward and picked him up.
In another interesting move of the night, the Denver Broncos traded up from the 31st pick to #26 to grab Memphis quarterback Paxton Lynch. With the pick, the Broncos likely ended their pursuit of 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick.
In playoff news, the Atlanta Hawks advance to round 2 by eliminating the Boston Celtics in game 6. They are now gearing up to take on Lebron and the Cavs. Hawks 104, Celtics 92.No comments
