Football roundtable: Surprises from Day One, Stanford on the rise

With the first day of the 2016 NFL Draft in the books, Outland Trophy winner Joshua Garnett is already off the board, having been taken at pick 28 by the San Francisco 49ers, which surprised many by trading up to claim the big Stanford guard. That was just one of many surprises that took place in Chicago on Thursday, when 31 picks were made as part of the first round. After the proceedings of the first day, we asked football writers Vihan Lakshman, Andrew Mather and Do-Hyoung Park about their reactions and opinions regarding a few points as the Draft continues, with the second and third rounds set to take place today.
