Pro Football Focus names 5 SEC stars as 'locks' to go in Round 1 of 2020 NFL Draft
The 2020 NFL Draft is still a few months away, but a number of elite college players are starting to stand out to NFL scouts.
On Monday, Pro Football Focus named 8 players as first-round “locks,” 3 from the Big Ten and 5 from the SEC.
The players named from the SEC included a pair of quarterbacks who just played an epic game on Saturday afternoon:
- Joe Burrow, QB, LSU
- Tua Tagovailoa, QB, Alabama
- Jerry Jeudy, WR, Alabama
- Derrick Brown, DL, Auburn
- Andrew Thomas, OL, Georgia
Burrow and Tagovailoa are even being mentioned as potential No. 1 overall picks, so we’ll see what happens as the pre-draft process plays out.
Those are all talented players, though, so NFL teams will be scouting them closely over the next few months.
