This university has been the big winner of the selection ceremony led by its number one Joe Burrow
This Saturday the NFL’s 2020 draft was finalized, the first to be held remotely due to the coronavirus pandemic. Louisiana State University finished as the big winner of the weekend after seeing fourteen of its players, including number one Joe Burrow, selected by the country’s top franchises. This is equal to the record of fourteen players selected in the same draft that Ohio State had since 2004.
Commissioner Roger Goodell explained his intention for the season to go smoothly. “It’s been a unique and special three days,” he said after the conclusion of the seventh round of the draft. “We’ve managed to celebrate what football is all about and provide an outlet. We are pleased to share this experience with a record number of fans,” he added.
The last day of the draft left the most notable move the election of Georgia quarterback Jake Fromm in the fifth round by the Buffalo Bills, where he is scheduled to start alongside Josh Allen. In addition, the Washington Redskins sent the San Francisco 49ers to Trent Williams in exchange for a third round in 2021.
It was a quarterback draft, as three of them were among the first six draft choices for the first time since 1999. In addition to Burrow’s election by the Cincinnati Bengals, Tua Tagovailoa and Justin Herbert were also elected to the top spots.
