Ten Frogs headed to the NFL

🕐 1 min read

Go Frogs? The Frogs went in the 2020 NFL draft.

The TCU football program has 10 players from its 2019 team going pro.

The Horned Frogs’ five draft picks led the Big 12 and were the most by any program in the state of Texas. Additionally, five other players signed free-agent contracts.

TCU had a pair of first-round selections in wide receiver Jalen Reagor (Philadelphia Eagles) and cornerback Jeff Gladney (Minnesota Vikings). With defensive tackle Ross Blacklock (Houston Texans) going in the second round and offensive tackle Lucas Niang (Kansas City Chiefs) in the third round, TCU had three players selected in the first 40 picks and four in the top 96.

Two running backs are headed to a local team, the Dallas Cowboys, as free agents: Darius Anderson and Sewo Olonilua.

TCU’s five draft picks tied for the second-most (2016, 2011, 2009) under Head Coach Gary Patterson, trailing only the 2001 class which had six selections. Patterson has had 53 NFL Draft picks with 129 players in NFL camps.

TCU now has 28 active NFL players with 18 teams having at least one Horned Frog. The Los Angeles Rams have the most TCU players with three (Josh Carraway, Travin Howard, Joseph Noteboom).
