The pick elicited a lot of reaction on social media due to Fields' surprising slide.
The fifth quarterback off the board
The top 15 picks of the first round featured five quarterbacks taken, with the fifth being Alabama quarterback Mac Jones, who was selected by the New England Patriots.
Jones is the first quarterback that Bill Belichick has taken in the first round during his tenure in New England.
The sixth Crimson Tide player selected
What a first round it was for the Alabama football program, with six players selected in the first round of the draft after the Pittsburgh Steelers selected running back Najee Harris.
That number ties the record for most players from one school taken in the first round of the draft.
Instead of going to Cleveland to walk across the stage, Harris spent his night at the homeless shelter where he spent time while growing up.
Reunited in Jacksonville
The Jaguars took Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence with the first pick in the draft and made sure to reunite him with one of his favorite weapons with the 25th pick, selecting running back Travis Etienne.
