The last couple of weeks have been pretty good to Isaiah Wynn. Just last week, the former Georgia tackle was drafted by the New England Patriots with the No. 23 overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft.
As if that life-changing experience wasn’t enough, Wynn followed it up by graduating from the university on Friday evening.

Wynn has represented the Georgia program well over the last four years. The 6-foot-3, 313-pound offensive lineman showed off impressive versatility while being an impact starter at left guard (12 starts in 2016) and left tackle (15 starts in 2017) for the Bulldogs.
That versatility is exactly what led the Patriots to select him. The team lost starting left tackle Nate Solder to the New York Giants via free agency, which left a huge hole on Tom Brady’s blind side.
That hole will now be filled by Wynn.
It’s been a long journey, but Bulldogs fans have to be happy with how the St. Petersburg, Fla., native represented the university and football team. With other former Bulldogs such as David Andrews and Malcolm Mitchell already in New England and Sony Michel (No. 31 overall pick) also joining Wynn, expect that positive representation up north to continue.
