The NFL’s 2016 draftis the 81st annual conference where the National Football League teams select eligible college football players. It serves as the league's most common source of player recruitment. This year's edition was held at the Auditorium Theatre in Chicago. It started on the 28th of April, Thursday, with the first round and will end tomorrow, the 30th of April.

The first round of the NFL’s draft left some surprised, others grinning from ear to ear, and a few completely clueless.

Laremy Tunsil

The night was most surprising for Laremy Tunsil as he was ranked at no. 13, much due to an unauthorized video posted to his Twitter account.

Alabama’s defense

Who would've imagined that Alabama’s predominant defense would get shut out fromthe very first round? Ryan Kelly went no. 18 to theIndianapolis Colts, however three Alabama defenders -- Jarran Reed, A ‘Shawn and Reggie Ragland -- will have to wait for the next day calls.

Joey Bosa

With the no. 3 pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, the San Diego Chargers selected Ohio State defensive end Joey Bosa. Itcame in as a shock even for himself, as he wasn't event hosted by the team for a pre-draft visit. “This kid is a better player than people think. Love this pick for the Chargers," commented CBS'senior NFL columnistPete Prisco.

Myles Jack for the 2nd round

Myles Jack never heard his name called in the draft, reportedly due to fears that his knee injury may affect his career. Jack's team expects he'll be selected in the second round.

Keanu Neal

Another eyebrow raiser was the choice of Keanu Neal at 17 by the Atlanta Falcons, which was definitely not expected as Neal is usually a last minute pick. Then, it was time for West Virginia’s Karl Joseph to shine for being selected by the Raiders at no. 14. Neal was forced to end the season due to a knee injury that prevented him from fully participating in WVU’s pro day and NFL Scouting Combine, but still he's seen as a fearless and energetic player.

Eli Apple

The last surprise of the night was Eli Apple who, although largely expected to be in the first draft, no one saw it coming when the New York Giants called him for no. 10, in front of Vernon Hargreaves.
