The question once raged, who should go No. 1 in the 2016 NFL Draft: Jared Goff or Carson Wentz?
The Rams traded up in the draft to get the No. 1 pick and chose Goff, who struggled in seven games as a rookie.
The Eagles traded up to select Wentz No. 2, and the former North Dakota State star had a typical up-and-down rookie campaign.
So the two former draft kings entered this season almost as an afterthought.
But both players showed Sunday why they were so highly touted a year ago, racking up big numbers in leading their teams to victory.
Wentz set the tone early in Philly’s game against the Redskins, scrambling around in the pocket like vintage Randall Cunningham to buy time to find Nelson Agholor for a 58-yard touchdown.

The 6-1, 220-pound senior had just one incompletion in 20 pass attempts, throwing for 329 yards and three scores in the 56-7 win. Mayfield surpassed 10,000 passing yards and 90 touchdowns over his career.
Calvin Ridley, WR, Alabama: The 6-1, 190-pound junior is a fluid route runner with great speed and showed off both skills while catching seven passes for 82 yards in No. 1 Alabama’s 24-7 win over No. 3 Florida State. Ridley’s 53-yard touchdown in the second quarter gave Alabam the lead for good.

Deebo Samuel, WR, South Carolina: North Carolina State had no answer for the 6-foot, 215-pound Samuel, who caught five passes for 83 yards and two touchdowns in South Carolina’s 35-28 victory.
Akrum Wadley, RB, Iowa: Wadley showed toughness and some nice shiftiness while rushing for 116 yards on 24 carries. The 5-11, 195-pound senior is coming off a season in which he ran for 1,081 yards and 10 touchdowns.
