On Thursday night, the New England Patriots had a serious case of UGA fever, drafting two Bulldogs in the first round of the NFL Draft.
At pick No. 23, the Patriots selected Isaiah Wynn, and shortly after, at No. 31, Sony Michel was taken off the board by New England, where the two will join fellow Georgia greats Malcolm Mitchell and David Andrews.
The two super bowl champions – Andrews and Mitchell – were quick to take to Twitter to welcome Wynn and Michel to their team.
Both Mitchell and Andrews are the epitome of damn good dawgs, overcoming adversity to play a significant role on the Patriots offense.
Andrews, who was always dubbed as too small to make a name for himself in the NFL, went undrafted in 2015 and is now a captain and starting center for Tom Brady and the Pats.
On the other hand, Mitchell, who has overcome multiple serious injuries, became a name to remember when he hauled in six of seven targets for 70 yards in the Patriots’ 34-28 Super Bowl LI overtime victory over the Falcons two years ago.
Two great role models for Michel and Wynn as they enter into the next phase of their career’s.
