Another Pac-12 quarterback is going in the first round of the NFL Draft. This time it's Jared Goff, who was selected 1st overall by the Los Angeles Rams.

Goff had an outstanding career with the California Golden Bears, breaking all sorts of records in terms of passing. Goff led Cal to an 8-5 season his final year with the Bears, then declared for the draft his junior season. Goff is the first quarterback taken overall.

Goff set 26 Cal records during his time with the Bears, including career marks for passing yards (12,220), passing yards per game (329.7 yards per game), touchdown passes (96), completions (977), passing attempts (1,569), total offense (12,086) and total plays (1,739), while the two-time captain finished second overall in passing efficiency (143.95) behind only Aaron Rodgers. In his final season as a junior in 2015, he established Pac-12 single-season records with 4,719 yards passing and 43 touchdown passes.
