3 Youth1 Alums drafted in Round 1 of the NFL Draft

Yesterday's NFL Draft was a major milestone for many athletes from around the country. Being drafted is the culmination of all the hard work and dedication these athletes have put in over the years.

3 Youth1 Alums were drafted in the 1st round. Here is a quick recap of those selected!

Trevor Lawrence was the first pick of the NFL draft by the Jacksonville Jaguars. We remember his middle school days playing for Team Georgia and look forward to seeing what he does in the pros.

Lawrence has been highly touted since his youth days. Him being the #1 overall pick was inevitable.

Jaelan Phillips was drafted 18th overall by the Miami Dolphins. We remember seeing Phillips back in 2017 and knew he was going to be special.

Phillips is known as a relentless pass rusher.

Another Y1 Alumni also went Round 1! The Steelers know great running backs when they see them. Congratulations to Najee Harris for being the first RB chosen in the 2021 NFL Draft!

The Alabama running back is one of the draft's premier athletes and will be making plays for the Steelers for years to come.


Youth1 has built a reputation for identifying elite talent from a young age. Congrats to these Youth1 Alum for being selected in Round 1 of the NFL Draft.
