Those picks were widely expected. No drama there. It was when the Oakland Raiders selected Clemson defensive end Clelin Ferrell fourth and the Giants took Duke quarterback Daniel Jones sixth that things got nutso. Those picks were unexpected.
Linemen, tight ends, and others went in different positions than experts had predicted. The Bills got Houston defensive tackle Ed Oliver at number nine, a pretty good pick, and the Packers grabbed Michigan outside linebacker Rashan Gary at 12. Who? It was chaos. And chaos, as it turns out, was exactly what the Dolphins needed for highly touted Clemson defensive lineman Christian Wilkins to fall to them at number 13. Things became even crazier after Wilkins heard his name called by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, who ended up on the business end of it all.

Wilkins' first hit in the NFL was on the commish — legendary stuff for the newest member of the Miami Dolphins. That move had fans joking on Twitter that he'd already been fined by the league before even cashing his first paycheck.
