Detroit Lions running back Jason Huntley was released by the team but he was claimed by the Eagles today. He was just 1 of 24 draft picks released today.

The NFL Draft is one of the best events to watch on television. I love talking about the draft, but I thought this stat would be cool. When breaking down the draft picks. I noticed that 24 picks that were selected in the 2020 NFL Draft have already been released. Yes, most of them latched onto practice squads, but the fact they were drafted and released is interesting.

The highest draft pick released was Kenny Robinson who played in the XFL. He made the initial 53 man roster but was cut today. He will likely be on a roster tomorrow, but that was the highest pick.

The Minnesota Vikings however cut 4 of their 2020 NFL Draft Picks. They cut the most draft picks.
