It was a big first round for California and Florida high school football in the 2018 NFL Draft. The two states led the way Thursday night with six former high school football players each picked at AT&T Stadium. Pennsylvania was next with three players chosen.
It was a really big night for Dan River High School in Ringgold, Virginia. The school not only two had players taken in the first round, but the two are brothers, which is the first time that’s ever happened in NFL history. The Buffalo Bills took linebacker Tremaine Edmunds at No. 16 while the Pittsburgh Steelers selected safety Terrell Edmunds at No. 28.
Alabama, Georgia, North Carolina, New Jersey, Ohio, Texas and Virginia had two player each picked.
Tiny football states Idaho and Wyoming had on player each draft. Linebacker Leighton Vander Esch played 8-man football at Salmon River High School in Idaho. Minnesota also had a first round pick.
