The 2020 NFL Draft will feature eight seniors who were given preliminary first round grades at the National Football Scouting meeting. Who are they?
In the NFL scouting community, there isn’t a whole lot of time to rest after the NFL Draft is complete. Following the 2019 NFL Draft, it’s likely many scouts and front offices had already started preliminary work on the 2020 NFL Draft class.
It may not be extensive work just yet, but NFL teams have already been considering a number of these players whether they were possibly going to declare for the 2019 NFL Draft or if they are just that special of talents.
Recently, as reported by Albert Breer with MMQB, the annual National Football Scouting meeting took place and eight seniors were given preliminary first-round grades.
This is similar to the NFL Draft Advisory Board grade given to players considering leaving school early.
Which players were given these lofty expectations? There are other seniors who could emerge, and some of these guys could also fall off, but let’s take a look at the eight guys the NFS decided are worthy of preseason first-round grades.
