Two Hilliard Natives Drafted By Patriots
The New England Patriots selected wide receiver Jeremy Ebert of Northwestern with their second pick in the seventh round of the NFL draft on Saturday.
Ebert, 23, is 6-feet and 195 pounds. He caught 75 passes for 1,060 yards and 11 touchdowns as a senior with the Wildcats in 2011. He is the Patriots' first offensive pick.
New England acquired three picks earlier on Saturday, after trading their fifth-rounder, No. 163 overall, to the Packers.
Earlier, the Patriots spent a sixth-round selection, 197th overall, on Ohio State defensive back Nate Ebner. They also selected cornerback Alfonzo Dennard of Nebraska in the seventh round, at No. 224 overall.
