NFL Draft

NFL+Draft

Eli Kayser, Writer

With all of the sporting events that have been canceled thus far, the NFL Draft is one thing that will still happen. The draft is set to go next Thursday night on ABC and ESPN. However, the format will be different as it will not be in Vegas like it was supposed to, but rather, it will be via live video chat. Some of the top prospects who would have been invited to the draft, have instead been invited to the group chat. It will be different, but it will still be something to look forward to soon.

Here are some of the most elite prospects who are sure to be early picks.

Joe Burrow, QB, LSU

A great quarterback and Heisman winner Joe Burrow led the LSU Tigers to a National Championship this year in which they were unstoppable. Burrow threw for 5671 yards and 60 touchdowns this past season. Many see him to go first overall to the Cincinnati Bengals.

Chase Young, DE, Ohio State

Chase Young is definitely the best lineman in this draft, and was the core of a great Buckeyes defense that made it to the College Football Playoff. He is expected to go second overall to the Washington Redskins, but after the second pick is when things aren’t as clear.

Tua Tagovailoa, QB, Alabama

Tua is probably the biggest wildcard in this draft. He was a great quarterback at Alabama, leading them to a National Championship, but he injured himself this season, and teams may or may not be willing to take a risk on him.

Jeffrey Okudah, CB, Ohio State

Okudah is a great corner back, and was another great player on the Ohio State defense this past season. He should be another player to go very high in this draft. This past season he had thirty-four tackles and three interceptions.

Justin Herbert, QB, Oregon

The final player I will be highlighting is Oregon quarterback Justin Herbert. He will be another player teams will take a look at. In his career at Oregon, he passed for over 10,000 yards and 90 touchdowns.

These are just some of the great players in this draft class, to see more, visit ESPN or CBS Sports.
