Six. That's how many wide receivers were taken ahead of Jaelen Strong in the first round Thursday night.

Perhaps the most painful for the Philadelphia native was when Chip Kelly and the Eagles opted for fellow Pac-12 wide receiver Nelson Agholor. The Baltimore Ravens also passed on Strong with the 26th overall pick.

One Sun Devil was taken Thursday night, just not the one everybody expected. The Green Bay Packers selected Damarious Randall with the 30th overall pick. He became the ninth pick in the first round for the Pac-12, the most by any conference in the "common draft era" according to ESPN.

During team visits, questions popped up about the health of Jaelen Strong's wrist which were first reported by Ian Rapoport of NFL.com. Strong later refuted these claims as an injury that happened during the season which he played five games with. He caught 82 passes for 1,165 yards and 10 touchdowns last season.
