With the No. 7 pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, the Detroit Lions selected OT Penei Sewell out of Oregon.
Up to this point, Sewell, who just turned 21 years old, has done a very good job of holding down the fort at left tackle while waiting for Taylor Decker to return from Injured Reserve.
This coming the Lions will be in Pittsburgh to take on the Steelers and Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin knows the Lions have something special with Sewell.
“was drafted where he was for a reason,” Tomlin said. “His pedigree is ridiculous. His talent is ridiculous.”
That is some pretty high praise from one of the best NFL head coaches of all time.
Mike Tomlin says that Penei Sewell "was drafted where he was for a reason. His pedigree is ridiculous. His talent is ridiculous."
