The NFL Draft works in mysterious ways, and the 2020 NFL Draft will be no different as there will be surprise first round picks. Here are five candidates.
In years past, there have been shocking first round picks that nobody saw coming, just like a year ago when the Houston Texans took small school fifth year senior Tytus Howard. When the 2020 NFL Draft rolls around, you have to be prepared for anything to happen.
It is usually at the All-Star events like the Senior Bowl and at the NFL Scouting Combine when players begin to skyrocket up draft boards, probably because they are more recent than the actual season from the NFL Draft. Players who showcase themselves well in these events tend to grab the attention of NFL scouts and general managers.
UMass’s Andy Isabella heard his name called in the second round after a good draft cycle and great production despite a small school prospect, the same can be said for Delaware’s Nasir Adderley. Like Howard, Kaleb McGary also rose into the first round after a great showing at the combine despite just average film.
Be prepared for crazy things to happen, and the 2020 NFL Draft is still five months away. Here are five names to keep an eye on now that could potentially rise into the first round of the draft this upcoming April.
