Excitement filled Nashville for the first night of the NFL Draft on Thursday as one by one, players posed with the jerseys of their new teams. But whatever fans may have thought about their teams' picks, those players were snappy dressers. Who knew that the NFL Draft would present many of the most iconic fashion moments we've seen this year? 

The most notable for anyone who caught the broadcast was the getup of Devin Bush, wearing what appears to be a white sling across his perfectly tailored black suit.

Twitter was all over Bush for this bold fashion choice, with many people wondering if they were the only ones who thought he looked injured at first glance. The influx of tweets can confirm that pretty much everyone was under the same impression that the sling-like piece indicated some sort of shoulder injury.

As far as notable looks go, Bush was in good company. Going for more of a subdued-but-fresh style, No. 1 pick Kyler Murray rolled up in a pastel pink striped suit, sporting a pair of fresh white sneaks. It doens't quite have the shock factor that Bush's strapped-in look does, but fans definitely took note of his impeccable style. 

Somewhere between these two extreme outfit choices lies New York Giants pick Deandre Baker's wardrobe. He went for the well-pressed suit look like Murray, but for Baker, that suit had the words "Dolce &. Gabbana" plastered all over it. Baker made it clear that subtle branding isn't always the way to go when you're trying to make a statement.

It wasn't just the draftees that got in on the action. Vince Wilfork, formerly of the New England Patriots, and DeAngelo Williams of Carolina Panthers fame strutted their stuff together in what appears to be a white skirt and vest combo for Wilfork and some loud purple ruffles for Williams. Neither ensemble would be complete without the rhinestone details throughout.

We're pretty sure no one asked them who they were wearing.
