The 2020 NFL Draft concluded last night and we had eleven Nigerians drafted. There will probably be more guys that get signed as undrafted free agents, but we wanted to highlighted guys that were blessed to get call during the three day virtual NFL Draft.

I believe that the number of Nigerian draftees will continue to increase over the years. There are tons of Nigerians exceling in the game of football throughout the states and this will just be more motivation to keep pushing to reach that NFL goal.

Check out the full list of draftees below:

Name Team Draft Pick Position University
Jeff Okudah Detroit Lions Rd 1, Pick 3 CB Ohio State
Noah Igbinoghene Miami Dolphins Rd 1, Pick 30 CB Auburn
Josh Uche New England Patriots Rd 2, Pick 60 DE Michigan
Julian Okwara Detroit Lions Rd 3, Pick 67 OLB Notre Dame
Justin Madubuike Baltimore Ravens Rd 3, Pick 71 DT Texas A&M
Micahel Ojemudia Denver Broncos Rd 3, Pick 77 CB Iowa
Albert Okwuegbunam Denver Broncos Rd 4, Pick 118 TE Missouri
Hakeem Adeniji Cincinnati Bengals Rd 6, Pick 180 OT Kansas
Michael Onwenu New England Patriots Rd 6, Pick 182 OG Michigan
Prince Tega Wanogho Philadelphia Eagles Rd 6, Pick 210 OT Auburn
Eno Benjamin Arizona Cardinals Rd 7, Pick 222 RB Arizona State

Good luck to these young men in the next steps of their professional career in the NFL. Just know the all of Nigeria is rooting for you guys.
