The Los Angeles Rams are on the clock!

Jerry Lai-USA TODAY Sports

While you'll probably have to wait until the latter rounds to see a South Carolina Gamecocks player get drafted, there's probably something for every football fan to keep an eye on as the first round of the NFL Draft starts tonight at 8 p.m. ET at the Auditorium Theatre in Chicago, Illinois.

The big question is who the St. Louis Los Angeles Rams will take with the first pick of the draft. The Rams made a bold (unwise?) move to trade up to the top of the order and appear primed to take Cal quarterback Jared Goff. The SEC is sure to be represented well in the first round; Florida's Vernon Hargreaves III, Ole Miss's Laremy Tunsil, Georgia's Leonard Floyd, and Alabama's Ryan Kelly are among the former conference standouts that may hear their named called this evening. As for the Gamecocks, Pharoh Cooper, Jerell Adams, Brandon Wilds and Brandon Shell each project to be taken anywhere from the third to the seventh round, so South Carolina fans will be watching on Friday and Saturday to see which team these young men will be representing in the NFL next year.
