• Two weeks before the draft, the Rams traded up from No. 15 with the Titans to obtain the No. 1 selection. L.A. sent their first rounder, two second-rounders, a third-rounder, and its 2017 first and third-rounders to Tennessee in exchange for the No. 1 pick, a fourth-rounder and a sixth-rounder. Signs indicate the Rams covet a quarterback, and the Titans — already equipped with Marcus Mariota at QB — multiplied their assets and moved down.

• One week ago, the Eagles moved up to No. 2, also intending to take a quarterback They sent the No. 8 pick, a third-rounder and a fourth-rounder in addition to a first-rounder in 2017 and second-rounder in 2018 to Cleveland for the selection and a fourth-rounder in 2017. This marked the fourth time in NFL history the first two selections were dealt.

• The first trade of draft night came at No. 8, with the Browns dealing that selection to the Titans. Tennessee traded up from No. 15, and took Michigan State offensive tackle Jack Conklin. The Browns also sent a sixth-round pick, and got back the No. 15, a third-rounder and a second-rounder in next year’s draft.

• The No. 9 pick was also dealt, with the Buccaneers sending it to the Bears. Chicago was originally slated to pick at No. 11, and sent that pick and a fourth-rounder to Tampa Bay to select Georgia linebacker Leonard Floyd.

• The Texans moved up from No. 22 to No. 21, swapping with the Redskins. The Redskins received a 2017 6th-round pick to move down one spot. The Texans drafted WR Will Fuller from Notre Dame with the pick.

• The Chiefs dealt pick No. 28 to the 49ers, who took Joshua Garnett, an offensive guard from Stanford. The Niners sent second, fourth and sixth-round picks in this year’s draft in exchange.
