Former Thomas Jefferson and Michigan defensive lineman Chase Winovich was selected in the 3rd round of the 2019 NFL Draft on Thursday.
"That's the Patriots."

Winovich, a 6-foot-3, 225 pound defensive end, spent five seasons with the Wolverines, amassing 166 total tackles and 18.5 sacks.
As a senior in 2018, he played in 13 games, recording 33 tackles, five sacks and a fumble recovery.
Winovich went to Michigan as a four-star prospect out of Thomas Jefferson. He joins Miles Sanders (Woodland Hills) as the second former WPIAL player drafted tonight.
Agree with @richeisen: “Gronk’s out, Winovich is in.” They’re a little different personalities but Winovich is hysterical. Fills a need on defense for the #Patriots and for the media in the locker room up there.
