CHICAGO – The Mock Drafts are finally over.

It's time for the real thing.

Colts.com is live in Chicago at the Auditorium Theater at Roosevelt University for the 2016 NFL Draft.

Here's your one-stop shop for draft details with the Colts having six picks this year.

Stay tuned to this page for constant updates on Round One of the 2016 NFL Draft, up until the Colts pick at No. 18.1. Rams: QB-Jared Goff (California)

Analysis: After setting NFL history, moving up 14 spots to the top of the draft, the Rams stayed in their new state for their future at quarterback. In Goff, the Rams won't need to rely on their rookie quarterback to do too much, thanks to an impressive front seven and the finest young running back in the NFL, Todd Gurley.2. Eagles: QB-Carson Wentz (North Dakota State)

Analysis: Wentz replaces Joe Flacco (2008) as the last non-FBS player to be chosen in Round One. The Eagles traded twice this spring to move up to the second overall pick and clearly wanted a player with plenty of upside. With Goff and Wentz going 1-2, this marks the seventh time in NFL history quarterbacks have been taken with the first two picks.3. Chargers: DE-Joey Bosa (Ohio State)

Analysis: Now, the draft really begins. Bosa's name wasn't rumored too much to the Chargers throughout the past few days. The Colts will see Bosa and the Chargers at Lucas Oil Stadium in Week Three of the season.4. Cowboys: RB-Ezekiel Elliott (Ohio State)

Analysis: How high is too high for a running back? Well, after a recent trend of teams shying away from a running back, Elliott proved to be just too good to let slip for the Cowboys. With Elliott running behind the Dallas' offensive line, the Cowboys could get back to the 2014 dominant running unit they were with DeMarco Murray.5. Jaguars: DB-Jalen Ramsey (Florida State)

Analysis: For the second straight year, the Jaguars stayed in state with their top-five overall pick. Ramsey was thought to be possibly be the top defender (or player) in the draft. The Jaguars continue their strong offseason on the defensive side of the ball.6. Ravens: DE-Ronnie Stanley (Notre Dame)

Analysis: The top offensive tackle in this year's draft ended up being the athletic left tackle out of Notre Dame. Stanley slid over to left tackle at ND after Zack Martin graduated in 2014. If Stanley is like Martin, Ravens' fans will be quite happy.7. 49ers: DE-DeForest Buckner (Oregon)

Analysis: The Chip Kelly era begins with a guy he recruited at Oregon. Buckner provides the 49ers a versatile defensive lineman as they try and rebuild their defense. Bucker joins Oregon's Arik Armstead as the 49ers' last two first-round picks.

8. Titans: OT-Jack Conklin (Michigan State)

Analysis: Larmey Tunsil continues to fall. With Tunsil still on the board, the Titans traded up and took Conklin, the All-American tackle out of Michigan State. The Titans moved from No. 1 overall to No. 15, then back into the top-10 to take a tackle to play opposite Taylor Lewan.9. Bears: OLB-Leonard Floyd (Georgia)

Analysis: Back-to-back trades brought a roar out of the Auditorium Theater. Arguably the top edge rusher in the draft was the choice for the Bears. Floyd is lanky, but teams love the potential in this pass rusher.

10. Giants: CB-Eli Apple (Ohio State)

Analysis: Is this a stretch? Many Mock Drafts had Apple in the middle-to-late part of Round One. Apple is one of the youngest players in the draft. Ohio State had three players go in the top-10.11. Buccaneers: CB-Vernon Hargreaves III (Florida)

Analysis: Just like Jacksonville earlier, this Florida team also stayed in state for a defensive back. Hargreaves III was long thought to be a top-10 pick and he is the third cornerback taken on Thursday night.12. Saints: DT-Sheldon Rankins (Louisville)

Analysis: What Rankins lacks in stature, he makes up for in his ability to play all over the defensive line. Rankins will instantly improve a defense that really struggled last season. He was a Senior Bowl invitee this season.

13. Dolphins: OT-Laremy Tunsil (Ole Miss)

Analysis: And the drama of Laremy Tunsil's night is finally over. The Dolphins' offensive line struggled in 2015 and Tunsil will certainly upgrade that. At the start of the night, there was no way Miami could have expected Tunsil to be on the board without trading up.14. Raiders: S-Karl Joseph (West Virginia)

Analysis: The top safety of the draft joins Raider Nation. A knee injury to Joseph still didn't keep Oakland from taking him in the top half of the first round. Joseph is known for his ability to strike from the safety position.

15. Browns: WR-Corey Coleman (Baylor)

Analysis: The top wide receiver in the draft lasted until pick No. 15. Cleveland originally held the No. 8 pick before they traded back with the Titans. Coleman will be playing with fellow Baylor Bear Robert Griffin III.16. Lions: OT-Taylor Decker (Ohio State)

Analysis: The fourth offensive tackle of the draft was also the fourth Buckeye off the board. Decker, who calls himself an 'old school football,' stays in Big Ten country to protect Matthew Stafford.

17. Falcons: S-Keanu Neal (Florida)

Analysis: After some thought the safety position would be a little scarce in Round One, we saw two in the first 17 picks. Neal will add to the Falcons getting younger on defense after taking Clemson's Vic Beasley last year.
