 Draft Scout College Football Player News


  Penei Sewell is the first Oregon offensive lineman selected in the first round of the NFL draft since Kyle Long in 2013. Penei Sewell spent draft night at the family home in St. George, Utah, eating Pizza Hut in front of the television instead of bear-hugging NFL commissioner Roger Goodell on the stage in Cleveland. Mario Cristobal, the head of the 6-foot-6, 330-pound left tackle's Oregon football family, flew in for the festivities with defensive line coach Joe Salave'a after the Ducks' spring practice Thursday. About an hour into the first round, Sewell was selected by the Detroit Lions with the No. 7 overall pick in 2021 NFL draft.

"It's the world," Sewell said after realizing his American dream after spending most of his childhood living in a one-bedroom house in American Samoa. "Every time I think of this moment, I go back to that shack on the island with all my family. When we were all in the living room sleeping on that floor in that shack, and now look at us. "I'm in a position to really change my family dynamic and also play at the level I wanted to play my whole life. To be a part of the NFL and the Detroit Lions organization is nothing but a dream come true." - Register Guard
