2019 NFL DRAFT RECAP

MOBILE, Ala.  This year’s NFL Draft was a huge success for all Reese’s Senior Bowl Alumni. Most notably, the Senior Bowl tallied 10 first round draft picks, the most since the 2011 draft. This is a great accomplishment considering there were only 56 underclassmen in the 2011 draft (compared to 111 in the 2019 draft).

Last First School Pos Round Pick Team
Jones Daniel Duke QB 1 6 New York Giants
Lindstrom Chris Boston College OL 1 14 Atlanta Falcons
Bradbury Garrett North Carolina State OL 1 18 Minnesota Vikings
Savage Darnell Maryland DB 1 21 Green Bay Packers
Dillard Andre Washington State OL 1 22 Housten Texans
Sweat Montez Mississippi State DL 1 26 Washington Redskins
Abram Johnathan Mississippi State DB 1 27 Oakland Raiders
Collier LJ TCU DL 1 29 Seattle Seahawks
McGary Kaleb Washington OL 1 31 Atlanta Falcons

Overall, the Reese’s Senior Bowl had 93 of its athletes picked in the 2019 NFL Draft. This tallies the second most in the history of the 71-year All-Star game keeping in mind the 111 underclassmen in the 2019 Draft.
Beyond the first round of the draft, the Reese’s Senior Bowl placed 40 players in the first three rounds of the draft. This is the second most ever in the history of the nation’s premier collegiate all-star game.

Top draft performing schools from this year’s Reese’s Senior Bowl were Boston College (4), Mississippi State (4), West Virginia (4), Alabama (3), Auburn (3), Oklahoma (3), Southern California (3), Texas A&M (3), Washington (3).
