LARAMIE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now)- The 2020 NFL Draft was Thursday, April 23rd-Saturday, April 25th. On the second day of the draft, the Cincinnati Bengals selected Logan Wilson as the 65th overall pick. On the third day, the New England Patriots selected Cassh Maluia as the 204th overall pick. The Atlanta Falcons signed Tyler Hall as a Free Agent. "I think as each years gone on, our program is in solid shape, certainly attracted more NFL interests, the NFL teams are recognizing one the mountain west has excellent players and what type of program, players we have here, they find that their attractive and they fit in well" said Wyoming football Head Coach, Craig Bohl.
Coach Bohl said once Logan Wilson was drafted by the Bengals he spoke with Joe Burrows dad about Logan and Joe being teammates. He said the Wilson and Burrow family are very similar.
When Coach Bohl spoke about Cassh Maluia heading to play for the Patriots, he said Cassh's performance on pro day really helped him. Cassh and Logan are both linebackers and the only other college that had two linebackers drafted was LSU.
Right now, only one Wyoming player has signed as a free agent and that is Tyler Hall. Coach Bohl said Tyler is an explosive player and has a heck of a shot to make it with the Falcons. "Over the last several years we've developed guys more and more and certainly our performance center has had an impact and we gotta pretty solid recruiting matrix, so I think it speaks well of our program" said Coach Bohl.
