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:
|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|
