NFC West 2020 NFL Draft Recap

Taking a look at what the rest of the NFC West did in the 2020 NFL Draft.


The 2020 NFL Draft came to an end Saturday afternoon with the Seahawks selecting eight players. Seahawks fans are probably well aware of who their team picked over the weekend, just in case, you can get information on all eight players here, as well as Pete Carroll and John Schneider’s takeaways from the draft here.

In addition to knowing what the Seahawks did over the weekend it's always good to keep tabs on the rest of the division as well, so with that in mind, here's a look at what the other three NFC West teams accomplished over the weekend. 

San Francisco 49ers

The biggest news for the 49ers over the weekend wasn't who they added in the draft, but rather who they acquired via a trade with Washington, Pro-Bowl left tackle Trent Williams. Williams will replace another Pro-Bowl left tackle, Joe Staley, who announced his retirement over the weekend.

As for their picks, you can find the list below. For more info, here's a breakdown of those picks from senior reporter Keiana Martin.

Round 1, No. 14 overall: DT Javon Kinlaw, South Carolina
Round 1, No. 25 overall: WR Brandon Aiyuk, Arizona State
Round 5, No. 153 overall: OL Colton McKivitz, West Virginia
Round 6, No. 190 overall: TE Charlie Woerner, Georgia
Round 7, No. 217 overall: WR Jauan Jennings, Tennessee

The Rams didn't have a first-round pick, the result of last year's trade for cornerback Jalen Ramsey, but they had two picks in the second round and two more in the third, and came away from the weekend having added nine players:

Round 2, No. 52 overall: RB Cam Akers, Florida State
Round 2, No. 57 overall: WR Van Jefferson, Florida
Round 3, No. 84 overall: OLB Terrell Lewis, Alabama
Round 3, No. 104 overall: S Terrell Burgess, Utah
Round 4, No. 136 overall: TE Brycen Hopkins, Purdue
Round 6, No. 199 overall: S Jordan Fuller, Ohio State
Round 7, No. 234 overall: LB Clay Johnston, Baylor
Round 7, No. 248 overall: K Sam Sloman, Miami (Ohio)
Round 7, No. 250 overall: G Tremayne Anchrum, Clemson

Arizona Cardinals

The Cardinals kicked off their draft by selecting one of the more intriguing defensive prospects, Clemson linebacker Isaiah Simmons, and they had already used their second-round pick earlier this offseason to acquire Pro-Bowl receiver DeAndre Hopkins, so the hope in Arizona will be that they used their first two picks to add impact players on each side of the ball. Darren Urban from breaks down the draft weekend here, and here's a look at the full draft class:

Round 1, No. 8 overall: ILB Isaiah Simmons, Clemson
Round 3, No. 72 overall: OL Josh Jones, Houston
Round 4, No. 114 overall: DT Leki Fotu, Utah
Round 4, No. 131 overall: DT Rashard Lawrence, LSU
Round 6, No. 202 overall: ILB Evan Weaver, California
Round 7, No. 222 overall: RB Eno Benjamin, Arizona State
