Lions select TE Isaac Nauta with the 224th pick in 2019 NFL Draft

With their first seventh round pick (224th overall) in the 2019 NFL Draft, the Detroit Lions selected TE Isaac Nauta out of Georgia.

The 6-foot-3, 244-pound junior had 68 receptions, 905 yards and eight touchdowns in his career.

He was a big playmaker for Georgia but underwhelmed at the combine. Nauta only ran a 4.91-second 40 yard dash, 28-inch vertical, and 7.45-second three cone drill.

Last year he had only a 3.2% drop percentage and was an elite run blocker.

He was an ESPN All-American freshman in 2016 and was a 5-star recruit out of high school.
