Cal quarterback Jared Goff is expected to be the choice of the Los Angeles Rams with the #1 overall pick in the NFL draft, which begins tonight in Chicago.
Barring a trade, the Lions will have the #16 pick this evening, and most mock drafts have Detroit taking Alabama’s Jarran Reed.
He is a versatile player who can play at both defensive tackle and at defensive end.
The Packers have the 27th pick in the first round.
They are expected to choose Alabama linebacker Reggie Ragland.
He is a hard-hitting linebacker who can play the middle, allowing Clay Mathews to move back outside.
The first round of the NFL draft begins this evening at 8.
Rounds #2 and #3 of the draft will take place tomorrow night.
