The NFL draft is a time for hopes to be realized and dreams to come true for so many athletes across the country. With the 2020 NFL Draft happening virtually for the first time ever, I wanted to go ahead and look back, taking the time to carefully examine all of those NFL draft selections that hailed from UCLA. All of those former Bruins who had their dreams come to life.

We’ll be adding more onto this list during the 2020 NFL Draft as the list of Bruin Pros is only going to increase.
