NFL Draft.

It was an eventful one, featuring some surprises picks, trades and the sliding of Ole Miss offensive tackle Laremy Tunsil after a video surfaced of him appearing to smoke marijuana out of a bong with a gas mask on. 

Which colleges dominated the NFL Draft's first round? 

Ohio State, of course, but there were some other programs that had great nights on the draft board. 

There were four colleges with multiple first-round selections. 

No. 4 ??? >>>

4. Florida

Number of first-round selections: 2. 

The Gators had two defensive backs taken in the first round of the 2016 NFL Draft: Vernon Hargreaves III and Keanu Neal. 

Hargreaves III went No. 11 overall to Tampa Bay and Neal went No. 17 overall to Atlanta, so they'll be in the same division.

Ole Miss last had multiple first rounders in 2009, when Michael Oher and Peria Jerry went back to back at No. 23 and No. 24. The Rebels never had three first rounders before last night.

Next: No. 1 ??? >>>

1. Ohio State

Number of first-round selections: 5.

The Buckeyes had one of the best nights of all-time at the NFL Draft, with five former players going in the first round. 

Joey Bosa went No. 3 to San Diego, Ezekiel Elliott went No. 4 to Dallas, Eli Apple went No. 10 to the New York Giants, Taylor Decker went No. 16 to Detroit and Darron Lee went No. 20 to the New York Jets. 

The Buckeyes fell one first-round pick short of tying Miami's all-time record. The Hurricanes had six first rounders in 2004.
