2021 NLL Draft: Panther City Lacrosse Club Selects Jonathan Donville First Overall

For two years in a row, a former member of the Cornell Big Red has been selected first overall in the NLL Entry Draft. Following in the footsteps of his former teammate Jeff Teat, righty forward Jonathan Donville was selected by the Panther City Lacrosse Club first overall in the 2021 NLL Entry Draft. However, PCLC fans will have to wait at least a year to see their top pick suit up with Donville transferring to the University of Maryland this offseason.

Two other righty forwards followed as the Georgia Swarm selected Ryan Lanchbury and the Buffalo Bandits selected Tehoka Nanticoke, the latter who opened up on Instagram about what his selection meant to him.

One of the biggest moves during the draft wasn’t a selection, but the San Diego Seals’ decision to trade Connor Fields to the Buffalo Bandits in exchange for the 13th overall pick, which the Seals used to select righty forward Jacob Dunbar. The move was the second pro lacrosse trade involving Fields this year and sent him to a Bandits team that features many of his former teammates on Chaos LC. It also served as a homecoming of sorts for the Upstate New York native.

Take a look at the rest of the picks form the 2021 NLL Entry Draft, then let us know your thoughts on how your favorite team drafted in the comments or on social media.
