NFL: Super Bowl LIV-NFL Experience
This is what the NFL Draft was going to look like in Vegas.
Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The 2020 NFL Draft officially kicked off last night. This year we’re witnessing history for a number of reasons. First and foremost, everything is being done remotely. Aside from fans needing to boo over Zoom rather than in person, things went pretty seamlessly. We also got to see some compelling shots of NFL coaches and GMs in their homes of varying degrees of niceness.

There was of course, Cliff Kinsbury’s mansion that drips of “I just got paid a ton of money and needed to spend it all”:

Contrast that with Jery Jones, who has always had a ton of money and just casually set up shop in a **checks notes** $250M yacht that you couldn’t tell was a yacht:

On the opposite end of the spectrum, Bruce Arians’ setup is exactly as you would imagine it to be:

I don’t think I want to know what was happening at Mike Vrabel’s place:

On the player side of things, we got to see the difference between the SEC:

And the Big Ten:

Beyond the whole seeing inside everyone’s homes thing, it was an historic night in the actual draft itself as well. The entirety of the top ten went without a single trade - a first since 2015. The first trade involved former Hawkeye Tristan Wirfs as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers saw an opportunity to get a guy expected to go top ten with the 13th pick.

Here’s a recap of the entire first round:

  1. Joe Burrow, QB - Cincinnati Bengals
  2. Chase Young, DE - Washington Redskins
  3. Jeff Okudah, CB - Detroit Lions
  4. Andrew Thomas, OT - New York Giants
  5. Tua Tagovailoa, QB - Miami Dolphins

  10. Jedrick Wills, OT - Cleveland Browns
  11. Mekhi Becton, OT - New York Jets
  12. Henry Ruggs III, WR - Las Vegas Raiders
  13. Tristan Wirfs, OT - Tampa Bay Buccaneers from Colts via 49ers
  14. Javon Kinlaw, DT - San Francisco 49ers via Buccaneers
  15. Jerry Jeudy, WR - Denver Broncos
  16. A.J. Terrell, CB - Atlanta Falcons
  17. CeeDee Lamb, WR - Dallas Cowboys
  18. Austin Jackson, OT - Miami Dolphins via Steelers
  19. Damon Arnette, CB - Las Vegas Raiders via Bears
  20. K’Lavon Chaisson, LB - Jacksonville Jaguars via Rams
  21. Jalen Reagor, WR - Philadelphia Eagles
  22. Justin Jefferson, WR - Minnesota Vikings via Bills
  23. Kenneth Murray, LB - Los Angeles Chargers via Patriots
  24. Cesar Ruiz, C - New Orleans Saints
  25. Brandon Aiyuk, WR - San Francisco 49ers via Vikings
  26. Jordan Love, QB - Green Bay Packers from Texans via Dolphins
  27. Jordyn Brooks, LB - Seattle Seahawks
  28. Patrick Queen, LB - Baltimore Ravens
  29. Isaiah Wilson, OT - Tennessee Titans
  30. Noah Igbinoghene, CB - Miami Dolphins via Packers
  31. Jeff Gladney, CB - Minnnesota Vikings via 49ers
  32. Clyde Edwards-Helaire, RB - Kansas City Chiefs

As for tonight, there are two rounds on deck. Tristan Wirfs was the first Hawkeye off the board last night. Tonight, there are likely to be multiple Hawkeyes selected. A.J. Epenesa is sure to have his name called, though later than his scouting report would have suggested. We could also see Michael Ojemudia, Geno Stone and Nate Stanley all have their names called in these middle rounds. You can see where we project them here.
