  31. Minnesota Vikings (from San Francisco): Jeff Gladney, CB (TCU)
  32. Kansas City Chiefs: Clyde Edwards-Helaire, RB (LSU)

The first round went in routine fashion, until the Buccaneers traded up (from 14) with the 49ers to draft Wirfs with the 13th overall pick. Night one saw four trades and the biggest shocker of Love being drafted by the Packers- who were one of the teams to make a trade for picks.
