Anthony Gordon and Dezmon Patmon wait to hear their names at the NFL Draft

Where will be Cougar alums be picked?

We’re through three rounds at the NFL Draft and two things are clear: This is a very deep wide receiver class, and the hype around Jacob Eason was, shall we say, misplaced.

Also, WSU’s Anthony Gordon and Dezmon Patmon are still available. Neither was projected to go before day three, and here we are, waiting to hear their names as the draft winds down.

Gordon is behind Jake Fromm and Eason on most quarterback lists. Gordon’s incredible journey from junior college transfer to backup to one-year starter to (hopefully) an NFL opportunity is about to be written. Patmon’s size has to be attractive to NFL teams.

After the draft is when a flurry of undrafted free agent signings usually happen. Easop Winston Jr. or Brandon Arconado could get a chance at those contracts. Both players are great examples of how fascinating development is for college athletes. Separate from the undrafted free agent signings, a lot of rookie camp contracts are also signed just to fill out roster spots, but who knows whether those camps will even happen given the COVID-19 pandemic.

Rounds four through seven kick off at 9 a.m. PST.
