Anthony Edwards and Joe Burrow now have something in common — they were both drafted No. 1 overall. But the pick of Edwards on Wednesday night by the Minnesota Timberwolves made it the first time that the SEC had the No. 1 picks in the NFL and NBA drafts in the same year.

Edwards, the Georgia product, became the 11th straight one-and-done player to be the No. 1 pick, averaged 19.1 points for the Bulldogs, which led all freshman.

Burrow himself added to more unique SEC history, as he joined Cam Newton.

Burrow became the ninth quarterback to win the Heisman Trophy and then be the first overall selection in the NFL draft since 1967. Burrow also joined Newton as the only quarterbacks since 1967 to become the NFL’s first overall draft pick right after winning both the Heisman Trophy and the national championship.

Edwards hopes he can follow in Burrow’s footsteps in terms of a solid start to his career. Burrow ranks second in the NFL with 370 pass attempts and third with 242 completions. He has five 300-yard passing games, tied for second most among rookies in NFL history.
