The Premier Lacrosse League (PLL) Draft will take place on Wednesday, May 13th at 7:00pm and will be broadcast live on NBC Sports Network.

On Monday night Major League Lacrosse (MLL) held their annual collegiate draft via Twitter, as picks were announced through the leagues and individual team accounts. 

Due to the circumstances, it was a unique draft for sure. It has yet to be seen on a large scale exactly which players will take advantage of the NCAA’s decision to grant players an extra year of eligibility come back to school for another season, and which guys will come out and play pro lacrosse this summer. Also, it is unknown which league some of these players will play in, given they are drafted in both.  Continue reading “2020 MLL Draft Team Grades”
