NFL players try to flash as much personal flair as possible on the field but sometimes it’s their off-the-field style that makes the most noise.

The NFL draft usually doesn’t disappoint in this regard. Thursday’s first night was no exception.

Kyler Murray wore a suave, Great Gatsby-inspired pink suit that befitted the ultra-calm quarterback’s on-the-field demeanor.

Murray, the former Allen High School star and Oklahoma’s Heisman-winning quarterback, was taken by the Arizona Cardinals with the No. 1 overall pick.

He looked the part with a sweet imitation of a three-piece suit that Leonardo DiCraprio wore in the 2013 film adaptation of “The Great Gatsby.”

No. 3 overall pick Quinnen Williams of Alabama, wore a gray suit with a special mural on the inside lining of his jacket with a painting of a big kid

The biggest fashion faux pas? That was easily Michigan linebacker Devin Bush Jr. He showed up wearing a black futuristic-looking garment that would fit right in on Star Trek. The outfit included a white shoulder strap that went across his chest like a sash. His matching pants had white stripes wrapping down each leg.

He looked ridiculous. Even more than the Dallas Cowboys’ Ezekiel Elliott, who wore a half-shirt and bow tie at the 2016 draft.
