RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — Tremaine and Terrell Edmunds were both selected in the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft, becoming the first pair of brothers to both be selected in the first round of the same draft.

Tremaine was the 16th overall selection by the Buffalo Bills, while Terrell was the 28th overall pick, going to Pittsburgh. The Edmunds brothers became the seventh and eighth Virginia Tech players since 2000 to be picked in the draft’s initial round. The 83rd annual National Football League Player Selection Meeting continues on Friday evening and concludes on Saturday.

Tremaine became the second-youngest player drafted in the common era (since 1967) when he selected on Thursday (19 years, 11 months and 25 days). DT Amobi Okoye (D1-Houston) in 2007 was selected at 19 years, 10 months and 19 days old).

Based on feedback from various draft prognosticators, the two most likely candidates to come off the board for the Hokies could be DT Tim Settle. Potential Saturday selections for Tech could include CBs Brandon Facyson and Greg Stroman, as well as G Wyatt Teller and WR Cam Phillips. There’s always a possibility a club could take a flier on another VT alum.
