234 High Schools Have Players Selected in 2020 NFL Draft
The one thing that NFL rookies generally all have in common is an outstanding experience playing high school football. A total of 234 high schools contributed to the 255 players selected in the seven rounds of the NFL Draft on April 23-25.
IMG Academy (Florida) led the way with four players selected, St. Joseph’s Prep (Pennsylvania) followed with three players selected, while 16 other high schools each had two players selected.
“Playing at IMG Academy was amazing,” said Denver Broncos second-round pick K.J. Hamler, who attended the school alongside Cleveland Browns second-round pick Grant Delpit, Minnesota Vikings fifth-round pick K.J. Osborn and New Orleans Saints first-round pick Cesar Ruiz. “It prepared you for college from a school standpoint, in addition to training your body to be physically ready for college football.”
