Goff, Wentz at Ease on Eve of NFL Draft
CHICAGO (AP) — The NFL draft opens this evening in Chicago with two quarterbacks expected to be the top picks.
After a pair of blockbuster trades to move the now-Los Angeles Rams and the Philadelphia Eagles to the top of the draft, Jared Goff of California and Carson Wentz of North Dakota State are expected to be the first names off the board.
Goff says he's "excited for whatever happens." The 6-foot-4 Goff started every game during his three seasons at California and is the son of former major league catcher Jerry Goff.
The 6-5 Wentz led North Dakota State to its fifth consecutive FCS title last season. He passed for 1,651 yards and 17 touchdowns during his senior year that was shortened by a wrist injury.
After Goff and Wentz go in the top two spots, the real drama begins at Number 3 with the San Diego Chargers.
The Seahawks are currently set to pick at the 26th spot Thursday night.
