Ryan Day Wasn't Surprised Damon Arnette Was A First-Rounder, Thinks NFL Teams Missed On K.J. Hill

Seven rounds, 10 players selected.

Another successful draft for Ryan Day's Ohio State program. A day after the 2020 NFL Draft wrapped up, he hopped onto a 30-minute teleconference with local beat reporters to discuss J.K. Dobbins, Chase Young, K.J. Hill, Damon Arnette and more.

Here's a bullet-point rundown of what Day said:

  • On whether or not he was surprised Arnette went No. 19 overall: "I was more surprised that leading up to it that people had projected him in the second round." He says the Raiders are "getting a mature guy who competed at a high level," and he showcased toughness by playing with a cast.
