Some fun facts about this year’s draft
This year’s draft has some history. Here are some tips that will lead to the draft:
– If Trevor Lawrence goes to the Jaguars with the first overall pick, Clemson will be the No. 1 drafted player in history and the first player to make it into the top-3.
– If three quarterbacks were produced in the first six places, this would be the third time in the general draft era (since 1967) that this had happened:
- 2020: Joe Burrow (1st), Dua Takovilova (5th), Justin Herbert (6th)
- 1999: Tim Koch (1st), Donovan McNab (2nd), Akili Smith (3rd)
- 1971: Jim Blankett (1st), Archie Manning (2nd), Don Pastorini (3rd)
– If Mac Jones, Divonta Smith and Jaylan Wattle all get drafted in the first round, Alabama will be the first school to receive a quarterback and two broad recipients drafted in the first round of the same draft.
– If six quarterbacks were taken in the first round, it would be the first time since 1983 (when the Hall of Fame was drafted by Jim Kelly, John Elway and Don Marino). Five quarterbacks were picked in the first round in 1999 and 2018 – which is expected in 2021.
