Years of practice, months of scouting and days of preparation will culminate in Chicago Thursday night when the National Football League holds the first round of the 2016 Draft.

Thirty one teams are looking for their future stars, building blocks for the seasons ahead. Sure, great players are often found later in the draft, but the first round is where the real star power lives and this year has plenty of it.

The Los Angeles Rams are on the clock first and almost surely will take a quarterback for their first pick since moving the franchise from St. Louis this offseason. The Rams and the Philadelphia Eagles both traded up to get the first and second picks, and the Eagles are also eager for a potential cornerstone quarterback. After that, the draft will get interesting quickly.
