TOP TRADES: The 2016 NFL Draft marks the fourth time in the common draft era (since 1967) that the top two picks were traded. In the three previous instances – 1997, 1975 and 1967 – the third overall pick was also dealt.

The Los Angeles Rams traded for the first overall pick in this year’s draft, while the Philadelphia Eagles moved into the second spot.

The drafts in which the top three picks were traded:

YEAR, PICK NO. (TEAM THAT ACQUIRED PICK – PLAYER SELECTED)
1997, 1 (St. Louis Rams – T Orlando Pace)
2 (Oakland – DT Darrell Russell)
3 (Seattle – CB Shawn Springs)

1975, 1 (Atlanta – QB Steve Bartkowski)
2 (Dallas  – DT Randy White)
3 (Baltimore Colts – G Ken Huff)

1967, 1 (Baltimore Colts – DE Bubba Smith)
2 (Minnesota  – RB Clint Jones)
3 (San Francisco – QB Steve Spurrier)

ROLL TIDE: If Alabama has a player selected in the first round of the 2016 NFL Draft, the Crimson Tide will surpass Pittsburgh (1983-1989), Ohio State (1991-1997) and Florida (1997-2003) for the third-longest consecutive streak of players drafted in the first round since the advent of the common draft in 1967. They currently have seven consecutive drafts with at least one first round pick.

Miami (1995-2008) holds the longest streak with 14 consecutive drafts having at least one player selected in the first round.

LONGEST STREAK OF CONSECUTIVE SEASONS WITH A FIRST ROUND PICK (SINCE 1967)

YEARS: SCHOOL (CONSECUTIVE SEASONS WITH A FIRST ROUND PICK
1995-2008: Miami (14)
1983-1991: Florida (9)
2009-2015: Alabama (7)*
1997-2003: Florida (7)
1991-1997: Ohio State (7)
1983-1989: Pittsburgh (7)
*Active streak

BUCKEYE BRILLIANCE: Five Ohio State players can hear their name called in the first round of the 2016 NFL Draft – CB Eli Apple, DE Joey Bosa, T Taylor Decker, RB Ezekiel Elliott and LB Darron Lee.

If all five players are chosen in the first round, they would tie Southern California (1968), Miami (2002) and Ohio State (2006) for the second-most first-round picks since 1967. Miami (2004) is the only school with six first-round selections in one draft.

THE SCHOOLS WITH THE MOST FIRST-ROUND PICKS IN ONE DRAFT (SINCE 1967)

YEAR – SCHOOL (FIRST ROUND PICKS)
2004 – Miami (6)
2006 – Ohio State (5)
2002 – Miami (5)
1968 – Southern California (5)

SMALL SCHOOL SUCCESS: Not all top picks come from the big schools. Smaller schools have found success as well. North Dakota State QB Carson Wentz can become the fifth quarterback from a non-FBS school to be drafted in the first round since 1979,
when Division I-A was formed.

Wentz would join Joe Flacco (2008), Steve McNair (1995), Ken O’Brien (1983),
and Phil Simms (1979).

QUARTERBACKS FROM NON-FBS SCHOOLS SELECTED IN THE FIRST ROUND (Since 1979)

YEAR – PLAYER (SCHOOL, NUMBER CHOSEN; TEAM)
1979 – Phil Simms (Morehead State, 7; New York Giants)
1983 – Ken O’Brien (California-Davis, 24; New York Jets)
1995 – Steve McNair (Alcorn State, 3; Houston Oilers)
2008 – Joe Flacco (Delaware, 18; Baltimore)

TOP TWO QBs: California QB JARED GOFF and North Dakota State QB CARSON WENTZ may
hear their names called with the first two picks of the 2016 NFL Draft.

Since the beginning of the common draft in 1967, quarterbacks have been taken
with the first two picks of the same draft six times. Last year, JAMEIS WINSTON
and MARCUS MARIOTA were selected with the top two picks. It would mark the
second time that quarterbacks have been selected with the top two picks in
consecutive drafts (1998 and 1999).

FIRST ROUND REBELS: Mississippi T Laremy Tunsil, WR Laquan Treadwell and DT Robert Nkemdiche all hope to hear their name called in the first round of the 2016 NFL Draft. It would mark the first time in school history that three players were selected in the first round.

The last time Ole Miss had multiple players selected in the first round was 2009, when T Michael Oher (23rd overall, Baltimore) and DT Peria Jerry (24th overall, Atlanta) were both chosen.

TERRIFIC TECH: Louisiana Tech DT Vernon Butler can become the first defensive player in school history to be drafted in the first round.

Butler hopes to join Pro Terry Bradshaw (1970), Roger Carr (1974), Willie Roaf (1993) and Troy Edwards (1999), as the only Louisiana Tech players to be selected in the first round since 1967.

*Pro Football Hall of Famer

HISTORIC HORNED FROG: Texas Christian WR JOSH DOCTSON can become the first wide
receiver in school history to be drafted in the first round since the beginning
of the common draft in 1967.

Doctson would join CB Jason Verrett (2014), DE Jerry Hughes (2010), RB La Dainain Tomlinson (2001) and RB Norm Bulach (1970) as the only Texas Christian players selected in the first round since 1967.

MR. IRRELEVANT: The first shall be last. The Denver Broncos will have the honor of selecting this year’s “Mr. Irrelevant” – a tongue-in-cheek title bestowed annually upon the last player chosen in the NFL Draft – with the 253rd pick.

2016 marks the 41st year of the Mr. Irrelevant tradition.

Established in 1976 by Paul Salta, a former NFL player and Southern California businessman, Irrelevant Week is a weeklong celebration held annually in Newport Beach, California, which celebrates the efforts of Mr. Irrelevant and raises funds for charity. Special Olympics Southern California was named as the 2015 charitable recipient. Special Olympics provides year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual and physical disabilities.

In 2014, Irrelevant Week, Incorporated expanded its efforts by becoming The Foundation For The Undefeated
(www.theundefeated.org), a nonprofit dedicated to championing stories of perseverance in sports to inspire greatness in others. The Irrelevant Week tradition will continue as the cornerstone within the broader mission and reach of The Foundation for the Undefeated.
