From Chapel Hill to Capitol Hill, UNC quarterback Sam Howell is headed to the Washington Commanders.
With the first pick of the fifth round, Washington selected the UNC record-holder.
Despite being one of the bigger names of this year’s QB crop, Howell fell to Day 3 of the NFL Draft.
Fans around the league reacted to the Washington draftee on social media.
“LETS GO!!!” commented one fan. “Get right #7.”
“Washington got their starting QB,” replied another.
“Sam Howell and Dyami Brown, together again,” noted a sports writer.
Only time will tell if the Browns made the right decision trading for Watson.
