2017 NFL Draft Roundup

Orlando’s slate of college football games was well-represented in the 2017 NFL draft this past weekend.

Fifty-three players that participated in either the Camping World Kickoff, Camping World Bowl or Buffalo Wild Wings Citrus Bowl were drafted over the course of the 2017 NFL Draft which concluded on Saturday. The Buffalo Wild Wings Citrus Bowl led the way with 26 former participants being selected, followed by 20 from the Camping World Bowl and seven more between Ole Miss and Florida State from the inaugural Camping World Kickoff.

2016 Buffalo Wild Wings Citrus Bowl participant Jamal Adams of LSU led the way being selected sixth overall by the New York Jets. The safety was joined by Clemson wide receiver and 2014 Camping World Bowl participant Mike Williams, who was selected by the Los Angeles Chargers with the next pick in the draft.

In total, eight former bowl and kickoff game participants were drafted in the first round of the draft Thursday evening.

Michigan led all past participating teams with nine players that appeared in the Buffalo Wild Wings Citrus Bowl drafted over the three-day event. Both Florida and Miami finished close behind, having seven past bowl participants chosen.

Former Ole Miss Quarterback, Chad Kelly, who threw for 313 yards and four touchdowns in last season’s Camping World Kickoff, earned the infamous “Mr. Irrelevant” title after the Broncos selected him with the final pick in the draft.

A full list of former bowl and kickoff participants selected in this year’s NFL Draft is below.
