The first round of the 2019 NFL draft is in the books. The Arizona Cardinals kicked off tonight’s action by selecting Kyler Murray with the No. 1 overall pick in the draft.
Murray’s selection raises questions about what will happen to No. 10 overall pick from the 2018 NFL draft, Josh Rosen.
While 32 players get to live out their dreams by becoming a first round pick in the NFL draft, not every story ended with a smile on Thursday night.
Five players who attended the NFL draft were left in the green room after not getting selected in the first round. 23 players were invited to the draft and four remained at the end of the night.
Here are the five.
- Greedy Williams, CB, LSU
- Jawaan Taylor, OL, Florida
- Cody Ford, OL, Oklahoma
- D.K. Metcalf, WR, Ole Miss
- Drew Lock, QB, Missouri
Those are five huge names that will likely be taken early Friday night when the second and third rounds commence. Jawaan Taylor was seen as the best offensive tackle on the board when draft night started, but injury concerns precipitated a steep drop.
Meanwhile, Drew Lock was seen as a potential top-five pick, but dropped all the way out of the first round.
Round 2 of the NFL draft kicks off tomorrow at 7:00 p.m. ET.
