The 85th meeting of NFL franchises to choose the best college players ended on April 25th. It was initially supposed to be a full-scale event but eventually became a sequence of virtually-held rounds. Nonetheless, the excitement for the new players who entered the scene was tangible. The most intriguing players of the 2020 draft can be found below.
Chase Young was the second pick of the first round of the Draft, landing in the arms of the Washington Redskins. Prior to that, he was playing for the Buckeyes (Ohio State University) as a defensive end.
The most talked-about qualities of this player are his ability to adapt and learn, which makes him a versatile and smart acquisition. Notably, he finished his last college football season with a total of 16.5 sacks. That number set the new school record, and we hope to see more headlines of that kind in the future.
As the first overall pick in the 2020 Drafts, Joe Burrow is an outstanding quarterback who earned an impressive set of awards before even starting in the big-boys’ league. The winner of the 2019’s Heisman Trophy was picked by the Cincinnati Bengals.
Burrow played college football for Ohio State and LSU, passing for over 5,6k yards during his last season. With a total of 60 touchdowns, he set the new record for the NCAA FBS. Boasting an impeccable vision of the field and a clear determination to become a legendary player, it is no wonder that this young talent is the most promising face in the NFL.
Isaiah is a linebacker who played college football for the Cardinals. He was the eighth pick in the 2020 Drafts, chosen by the Arizona Cardinals. The exceptional combination of vision, speed, and tackling skills has put Simmons among the top promising players for this season.
In 2019, he received the Butkus Award, which is given to the best linebacker in the US (on all levels of play). Versatile and strategic, Isaiah Simmons is an enthralling player to follow this year.
Although the Draft was held virtually due to social restrictions caused by COVID-19, it invigorated the fire of excitement within the NFL fans’ hearts. And no wonder – the extraordinary talent of the players listed is exceptional and sure to elevate the enjoyment for the future games.
