The Aggie football team runs out of the tunnel onto Kyle Field just minutes before kickoff.

On Thursday night, the SEC asserted its dominance over the other conferences in college football, as 15 SEC players were selected of the 32 prospects chosen in the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft.

In a historic night for the SEC, 15 players from the conference were drafted in the first round, including five members of the National Champion LSU Tigers, including Heisman Trophy winner and first overall pick Joe Burrow. Other teams with multiple selections are Alabama, Georgia and Auburn. The remaining SEC prospects were made out of Florida cornerback C.J. Henderson and South Carolina’s Javon Kinlaw.

While the rest of the conference flourished on the first night of the draft, Texas A&M was left out of the festivities, failing to get a player selected in the first round for the third year in a row. With defensive tackle Justin Madiubike the highest A&M prospect on the board, the first night concluded with only two interior defensive lineman drafted. Madiubike and the remaining A&M prospects, including wide receivers Quartney Davis and Kendrick Rogers, punter Braden Mann, and defensive backs Debione Renfro and Charles Oliver, are still available after the first night of the draft.
