Surprises from the Draft

The first surprise of the draft was the fourth overall pick by the Oakland Raiders. Clelin Ferrell was chosen with this pick, which surprised many people as, in most mock drafts, Clelin fell a little later into the first round, meaning the Raiders could have used their other first round picks to secure him but ended up using the fourth pick.

Another surprise of the draft was the sixth overall pick by the New York Giants. Daniel Jones was chosen with this pick and this was probably the most surprising pick of the draft. Jones was overall the fourth best quarterback in most lists made by professionals, meaning that he would most likely fall in the second or third round. Then, with the sixth overall pick, the Giants shocked everyone and took Jones.

One last story of the NFL Draft was the story of Dakota Allen, who was a college football player for Texas Tech when he fell into the wrong group of friends and got into trouble with the authorities, causing him to lose his scholarship to Texas Tech. He then went to Junior College East Mississippi. There, he starred in the Netflix television series “Last Chance U.” With his performance at East Mississippi. Texas Tech let him back onto the team, where he played linebacker. He was able to get drafted by the Los Angeles Rams with the 251st pick in the seventh round, becoming the first draftee out of “Last Chance U.”
