NFL Draft 2016: First round draft order, pre-draft open thread

New, comments
Jerry Lai-USA TODAY Sports

The 2016 NFL Draft is officially less than an hour away at 5pm Pacific time (8pm ET). As the excitement builds, there will be a lot to talk about. First up is the Los Angeles Rams who are expected to take one of the two top quarterbacks in this draft -- either Cal's Jared Goff or North Dakota State's Carson Wentz. After that it's the Eagles who will take whichever QB the Rams don't take.

The Raiders don't pick until 14 overall, but every pick will shape their draft board. Here are a few references to help get you through:
