9:02 PM7 months ago

NO 14: SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS SELECT JAVON KINLAW

Does this pick come as a surprise? Maybe, because many thought the 49ers would select a receiver after moving back one place in the Draft.

8:06 PM7 months ago

NO 6: LOS ANGELES CHARGERS SELECT JUSTIN HERBERT

The Los Angeles Chargers were the other team in the top six that needed a quarterback. They select Oregon's Justin Herbert with the sixth overall pick of the 2020 NFL Draft.
