Top 11 Takeaways from Round One of the NFL Draft

11) Roger Goodell brought out Joe Namath, Phil Simms, Barry Sanders, Joe Andruzzi and wounded members of the nation's military in a transparent attempt to not be constantly booed

10) The only guy drafted from a small school in the first round went first overall

9) If you'd like to make fun of Geno Smith still being in the green room, you've got the overnight to keep working on that

8) With three straight picks from 9 to 11, it's safe to infer that the Alabama team was pretty good, really

7) Brown Fans named Barkevious are finally able to claim a jersey of their own

6) The Rams traded with Buffalo to get WR Tavon Austin from West Virginia, who might be the first wideout in town since the Greatest Show On Turf days

5) Baltimore chose S Matt Elam to close out the first round because they didn't want those who left the draft early from feeling bad about not mocking Manti Te'o

4) The Lions took DE Ezekiel Ansah from BYU despite only nine starts in his life, because, um, they are the Lions

3) It was a special night for Cowboy Fan, who got to watch their team trade down, take a center that no one was thinking very hard about, and got Jets Fan level of Publicly Irate

2) There is no truth to the rumor that Andy Reid was surprised that Eric Fisher was still there when the Chiefs picked

1) With the longshot options of Austin and EJ Manuel, no one taken tonight will make an appearance in your fantasy league draft, which is the only thing that matters
