The best and worst fashion statements at the 2016 NFL Draft

The 2016 NFL Draft hadn’t even started and the Auditorium Theater in Chicago was already burning with sartorial heat checks.

Inarguably, the biggest splash of the night came from former Ohio State running back Ezekiel Elliott, who cropped the top on a dress shirt and let it ride on the red carpet. From the crop to the bow tie to the oyster smuggling pants, this is a strong, all-around showing. Please do not try it at home.

Former Ole Miss offensive tackle Laremy Tunsil went with a more understated look with his gold, Mortal Kombat spike pit slippers.

This led to a spikey shoe-off against Florida State’s Jalen Ramsey, whose draft day footwear are also capable of murder.

And then we were gifted with the chessboard jacket, courtesy Clemson defensive end Kevin Dodd.

This is once-Alabama defensive tackle A’Shawn Robinson. He is wearing a red jacket. He is 21-years-old. Allegedly.

Ole Miss’ wide receiver Laquon Treadwell: killing it in the kimono jacket. Your grandmother’s wallpaper could never.

Darron Lee: possibly colorblind, definitely not getting out of this draft without visible stains.

I will pay in raw gold bullion for Robert Nkemdiche’s black creped lapel jacket. It is spectacular.

Some overarching themes from these outfits:
