With the Coronavirus Pandemic leaving our world in a standstill, the NFL Draft this past weekend brought some much needed entertainment to people stuck at home. Due to its nature, the NFL Draft is one of the only live sporting events that can be done while keeping people at home, which is exactly what they did. With picks being announced by the NFLCommissioner in his basement, future players tuning in to the draft to hear their name called in their living room, and of course fans from across the world tuning in by whatever means necessary, the draft came up with a safe, non risk option to give draft prospects the moment they’ve been dreaming of. 

With no high school sports going on, perhaps the best way to tie this story to our Tomball Cougars is to see what prospects got drafted that were from many of the popular colleges our graduating class will soon be attending.
