The first round of the NFL draft is underway, and we’ve already seen some interesting selections go by.
One player we could see come off the board in the first round later Thursday night is Ohio State CB Gareon Conley, and if he is selected, it reportedly would come after a rather interesting move by one team.
According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, one NFL team asked Conley to take an administered lie detector test, which he passed.

Conley was reportedly accused of sexual assault on Tuesday, and shortly after the report announced he would not attend the draft in Philadelphia.
It was originally thought that Conley would plummet in the draft due to the accusations, but it was reported earlier Thursday that might not be the case anymore.
Conley has vehemently denied the accusations, calling them “untrue, wrongful, and malicious.”
On April 9, a police report was reportedly filed in Cleveland which alleged Conley sexually assaulted a woman in a hotel room. Before the accusations, some experts were debating whether Conley could go in the top 20.
