(KTNV) -- NFL fans are gearing up for round two of the draft.
There were a couple of surprises in the first round. Not a single running back was picked for the first time in 40 years.
The first seven picks were linemen. The top pick in this year's draft was Eric Fisher of Central Michigan.
He called it a "dream come true."
A big name player who many had high hopes for just a few months ago didn't even make the first round.
Manti Te'o, the Nortre Dame standout who made headlines around the world after the bizarre story of his girlfriend that never existed, is still on the sidelines.
Even before the draft started, football fans could not resist taking digs at Te'o on social networking sites like Twitter.
One user posted a picture of an empty chair saying: "Waiting with Te'o's girlfriend to see what team will draft him."
Another posted: "Te'o has been talking to the Vikings every night for an hour. They told me they loved me - he said.
Te'o claimed that he was a victim and was not in on the fake girlfriend scandal.
The football player still has a chance at the NFL. The second and third rounds of the draft will take place today.
