2020 Virginia NFL Draft roundup: Where Reed, Hall and others landed

With 255 picks in the 2020 NFL Draft, plenty of college players saw their dreams come true. Two of those who heard their name announced came from the Univesity of Virginia. The selections mark the 36th draft in 37 years that at least one player from UVA was selected.

Additionally, another member of the 2019 team was one of the many given an opportunity as an undrafted free agent. 

Here's a look at the Cavaliers heading to the pros.

Joe Reed - Los Angeles Chargers (5th round, 151 overall)

The speedy pass catcher will join a talented wide receiver core in Los Angeles that features the likes of Keenan Allen and Mike Williams. He'll also have a chance to work with fellow rookie and first-round pick Justin Herbert who is the quarterback of the future for the AFC West team.

Reed can not only be a serviceable option for the Chargers in the slot but can also make an impact on special teams. Coming off a senior year in which he caught 77 passes, he'll find a way to see the field.

Bryce Hall - New York Jets (5th round, 158 overall)

Some thought Hall might find his way onto the Redskins when they were on the clock in the fifth round, but instead, the cornerback is heading to New York. The Jets should be happy Hall made it to them, as they can use all the secondary help they can get.

Hall does come with some injury concerns, as his 2019 season was cut short and there are worries surrounding his ability to stay healthy. 

Bryce Perkins - Los Angeles Rams (Undrafted Free Agent)

During the rush to sign players following the draft, the Virginia quarterback was among the many to find a new home.

Heading to Los Angeles, Perkins will get a chance to learn from some of the best offensive minds in football. Given his athletic ability, there's a possibility that Sean McVay finds a way to get him involved in the offense one way or another.
