The Jacksonville Jaguars took Georgia defensive end Travon Walker with the Number One overall pick in the NFL draft Thursday night in Las Vegas, kicking off the event at which it was the first time in 31 years that no offensive player was taken in the first five picks.

Another defensive end, Michigan’s Aidan Hutchinson, was taken second by the Detroit Lions, and the Houston Texans chose LSU cornerback Derek Stingley Jr. third. No quarterback was taken until 20th, when the Pittsburgh Steelers took Pitt’s Kenny Pickett.
