From the lack of drama at No. 1 overall with Trevor Lawrence to Jacksonville, to Alabama tying Miami's 2004 mark with a half-dozen first round NFL picks in one year and plenty in between, the first round of the 2021 NFL Draft was eventful Thursday night. 

The state of Georgia had the most natives selected, with six, while five different positions were targeted five times by NFL brass. How about Northwestern being one of seven college programs with multiple selections? 

SI All-American looks at all the comparable numbers from Round 1, including home state, college program, college conference, position and size.
