LEE COUNTY, Fla.- It's a big day for some Southwest Florida all-stars, as they could be professional athletes by the end of tonight.
Analysts are predicting three different possible teams where these players could go. First up, Sammy Watkins is expected to be on of the first 10 picks in tonight's draft, going to the Oakland Raiders or the Cleveland Browns. Watkins is an all time leading receiver in Lee County and last year's Orange Bowl MVP. He could be the highest draft pick out of Southwest Florida.
Naples High School graduate Carlos Hyde is also a top pick tonight. He's expected to be chosen in the first two rounds. CBS Sports says the Ohio State running back could go to the Atlanta Falcons.
Finally, Sammy Watkins' brother, Jaylen Watkins from Cape Coral High School, is expected to go in the second or third round. There's been no word yet on which team may take the Florida Gator.
