Winners and Losers of
2020 NFL Draft Round 1 The first round of the NFL Draft took place on
Thursday night, and there were a number of
winners and losers.
The Southeastern Conference set a new record
with 15 players selected in the first round.
Winner: Tom Brady
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers traded up to select Iowa OT Tristan Wirfs to help protect their new quarterback.
LSU had five players selected in the first round, including No.
1 overall pick Joe Burrow to the Bengals.
Winner: Tua Tagovailoa
Despite speculation about his hip injury, the
Alabama QB was drafted No.
5 by the Miami Dolphins.
Winner: Ohio State
The first three selections, Burrow, DE Chase Young and
CB Jeff Okudah, were all former Buckeyes.
Loser: Aaron Rodgers
Green Bay traded up to draft Utah State QB Jordan
Love at No.
26 as the heir apparent to Rodgers.
Loser: Roger Goodell
The NFL commissioner badly mispronounced
Tua Tagovailoa's last name, and he had virtual boos pumped in
from the broadcast in his basement.
