Golson started four games at center, seven at left tackle, two at left guard and two at right tackle last season, earning praise for his ability to plug-and-play at any position along the line.

The last USC quarterback selected in the first round was Mark Sanchez with the fifth pick in the Jets. The Browns took Baker Mayfield, the Jets took Sam Darnold, the Bills traded up for Josh Allen, the Cardinals took Josh Rosen and the Ravens picked Lamar Jackson.
