Tremaine and Terrell Edmunds become the first brothers to ever get taken in the first round of the NFL Draft

It’s a family affair in Dallas for the Edmunds clan.

NFL: NFL Draft Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

We had some NFL Draft history in 2018 with a family affair in the first round.

As Virginia Tech products, they both matriculated through Blacksburg and onto the league following in the footsteps of other VT siblings (their third brother, Trey, is already in the NFL with the New Orleans Saints).

The three Edmundses were the last set of 25 brothers Beamer coached in his 29 years in Blacksburg. They followed, notably, Michael and Marcus Vick and the Fuller brothers — Vinny, Corey, Kyle and Kendall — all of whom ended up in the NFL.

But it goes deeper than the siblings. Their father, Ferrell, also played in the NFL and was a Pro Bowler as well as a two-time All-Pro selection. Edmunds blood runs thick in the league, but we’ll have to wait quite a while to see if the lineage continues with a third generation of Edmunds men.
