The Unchosen Ones

With the first round of the 2020 NFL draft in the books, much of the elite talent has been distributed amongst the various NFL squads. Nonetheless, top players are overlooked in the first round every year, and this year is unlikely to be the exception. Here’s a list of some of the better players who remain unchosen. Some of these guys will likely end up on the Jets by the end of the day. I make no claim to having the definitive rankings here; this is just a list of some of the guys I think may go from unchosen to chosen by the end of the day. Who are your favorites? We encourage you to add your own picks in the comments.
