2013 NFL Draft results: Offensive linemen dominate the 1st round

Al Bello

It was a big night for big men. Teams loaded up on offensive and defensive linemen in the opening frame of the NFL Draft.

The first round of the 2013 NFL Draft saw a record nine offensive linemen selected on Thursday night. The Kansas City Chiefs opened the draft by selecting tackle Eric Fisher out of Central Michigan, and Texas A&M tackle Luke Joeckel went to Jacksonville at No. 2, setting the tone for the rest of the night.


Only one skill position player was selected in the top 10, as the Rams traded up to No. 8 to take West Virginia wide receiver Tavon Austin. Austin's college quarterback Geno Smith, at one time considered a possible first overall pick, fell out of the first round altogether. Florida State's E.J. Manuel was the only quarterback selected in the first round, at No. 16 by the Buffalo Bills.

Also falling out of the first round was Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te'o. The complete list of first round picks is below:
