Jared Goff makes it three consecutive No. 1 picks with a ‘J’ first name
Jared Goff of Cal was selected with the No. 1 overall pick and joins a long list of first-round picks to be drafted with their first-name starting with the letter "J."
The first-ever player drafted No. 1 overall in 1936 started the trend with Jay Beranger of Chicago.
Goff makes it three in a row for the letter "J" over the last three years, which no other letter has accomplished.
Check out the list below:
1936: Jay Berwanger, Chicago
1971: Jim Plunkett, Stanford
1983: John Elway, Stanford
1990: Jeff George, Illinois
2007: JaMarcus Russell, LSU
2008: Jake Long, Michigan
2014: Jadeveon Clowney, South Carolina
2015: Jameis Winston, Florida State
2016: Jared Goff, Cal
Here's to hoping Goff has a career more like Elway than Russell.
