How did Mississippi State Football do in the NFL draft?

The NFL Draft has now become an annual anticipated season for many Mississippi State Football fans.

The Mississippi State Football team has produced five first-round draft picks in the last five years. That’s something to be proud of, Bulldog fans.

Let’s look at where the two Mississippi State Bulldogs ended up this year.

Mississippi State Football – Emmanuel Forbes – 1st Round – No. 16 overall – Washington Commanders

Former Mississippi State cornerback, Emmanuel Forbes, has been drafted as the No. 16 overall pick to the Washington Commanders in the 2023 NFL Draft.

Many NFL analysts had Emmanuel Forbes going in the first round, and Thursday night solidified that guess with Emmanuel Forbes being the No. 16 overall pick to the Washington Commanders in this year’s NFL Draft.

The Washington Commanders have added a great cornerback to their secondary.

Emmanuel Forbes was born in Grenada, Mississippi about an hour and a half northwest of Starkville, Mississippi, where the football star would find himself playing college football.

Forbes graduated from Grenada High School in 2020, and he went on to play at Mississippi State University later that year.

Emmanuel Forbes put his stamp in the Mississippi State record books, and he added his name to one of the greatest cornerbacks to ever play at Mississippi State University.

Mississippi State Football – Cameron Young – 4th Round – No. 123 overall – Seattle Seahawks

Former Mississippi State Football defensive tackle, Cameron Young, has been drafted as the No. 123 overall pick by the Seattle Seahawks in the 4th Round of the 2023 NFL Draft.

Cameron Young makes yet another Mississippi State Bulldog drafted in this year’s NFL Draft.

The Seattle Seahawks have added a great defensive tackle to their defense for the 2023 NFL season.

Cameron Young finished the 2022 college football season with 37 total tackles, 10 solo tackles, and 1 sack.

Young’s presence on the defensive line is what truly made a difference for the Bulldogs.

Mississippi State Football is on the rise, and I expect to continue to see more Bulldogs drafted to the NFL in the coming years.
