From April 25-27, many young football players’ dreams came true by hearing their names called at the NFL Draft.

The Arizona Cardinals held the number one pick overall, and with it, chose Heisman winning quarterback Kyler Murray. The 5’10 stud now becomes the shortest quarterback ever drafted in the modern draft era. Nick Bosa was drafted second by the San Francisco 49ers and with this, his family became the second family to have their father and two sons drafted in the first round, joining the Manning family. The New York Jets held the third pick and chose standout Alabama defensive-lineman Quinnen Williams, who many analysts called the best player in the draft.

The other New York team, the Giants, held the sixth pick and questionably selected Duke quarterback Daniel Jones. Jones saw little success in his time at Duke, with his accuracy being a problem for him there and only completing 59.9% of his passes. The Giants were not done making selections as they held the 17th pick in part of the Odell Beckham Jr. trade, which they used on Clemson defensive-tackle Dexter Lawrence. The Giants traded up for the 30th pick where they chose Georgia defensive back DeAndre Baker.

Both New York teams filled many holes on their football teams in the draft as they look to propel themselves towards winning football games in the coming years.
