The first round of the NFL Draft was held on May 8th and like every major event, a Twitter conversation was a key part of the night.
The NFL not only promoted the hashtag #NFLDraft but for every pick included a hashtag on screen, like #JAXPick for the 3rd overall pick of Blake Borties (QB, UCF)
Fourth overall pick, Sammy Watkins (WR, Clemson) took over the NFL Instagram for live draft coverage, which included a selfie on stage with commissioner Roger Goodell.
Johnny Manziel was the trend of the night as everyone watched the Cleveland Browns select Manziel with the 22nd overall pick.
Jokes about Johnny football flooded Twitter; an account dedicated to his draft pick, @JohnnPickedYet, was created
