The end of March and the first day of April brought with it a new set of mock drafts across the country, as it usually does. While most outlets put together first-round mocks, some go as far as three rounds of mocking the 2020 NFL Draft.

CBS Sports, however, decided to take it a step further and give a full seven-round projection of who each NFL team will select with all 256 selections during the 2020 NFL Draft.

The draft featured three former Bruins in it’s selections, by CBS’ Josh Edwards.

Running back Joshua Kelley lands with the Green Bay Packers with Pick 94 overall in the third round.

Cornerback Darnay Holmes heads to the Denver Broncos at Pick 118 in the fourth round.

Tight end Devin Asiasi goes to the Chicago Bears with Pick 163 in the fifth round.

Here’s what Edwards had to say about each of those selections.

Kelley - Round 3, Pick 30 (94)

Kelley has the capability to be an every-down back. He does everything well and is said to be a strong locker room presence.

Holmes - Round 4, Pick 12 (118)

Holmes has a lot of upside and has received a lot of positive buzz in recent months.

Asiasi - Round 5, Pick 17 (163)

Asiasi was a bit of a surprising early draft declaration but he is a balanced tight end for a franchise that is clearly desperate to solve that position.

Each of these landing spots seem favorable for your former Bruins and the writeup even takes it a bit further by giving each player’s rankings as well.

Kelley checked in as the 12th-best running back and 179th-best overall prospect, Holmes landed at the 17th-best cornerback and the 117th-best overall player while Asiasi ranked as the 11th-best tight end and the 158th-best player overall.

There you have it, seven rounds of mock drafting and three Bruins taken. That leaves kicker JJ Molson as the only former Bruin who competed at the combine and went undrafted, unsurprisingly, as it’s a relative crapshoot at selecting where teams will make the decisions to go with their specialist selections.
