The first round of the 2013 NFL Draft concluded Thursday evening. 32 picks were called, none of them USC Trojans.

Call it the 7-6 hangover that won't quite go away.

For the first time since 2010 and only the second time in the last ten years, no USC players were selected in the first round of the NFL draft.

Pick No. 32 -- the final pick of the first round -- confirmed that no Trojan would be called on Thursday night.

The Trojans' first round possibilities were quarterback Matt Barkley and receiver Robert Woods.

Only one quarterback was taken in the first round, E.J. Manuel of Florida State. He went to the Buffalo Bills with the No. 16 pick.

West Virginia's Geno Smith along with Barkley remain on the board for round two.

FOX Sports NEXT projected receiver Robert Woods to be taken with the No. 27 pick to the Houston Texans -- but the Texans instead chose receiver DeAndre Hopkins out of Clemson. Three receivers were taken off the board in the first round.

Look for both Barkley and Woods to go in round two on Friday.
