Patriots Draft DII Safety Kyle Dugger With First Pick | Patriots Press Pass

    The New England Patriots selected Kyle Dugger, a safety out of Lenoir-Rhyne, with the No. 37 pick in the NFL Draft.


    The New England Patriots used their first pick of the 2020 NFL Draft to select safety Kyle Dugger at No. 37 overall. Dugger went to Lenoir-Rhyne, a Division II school in North Carolina, where he was the DII Player of the Year in 2019. While this selection came as a slight shock, Dugger’s incredibly impressive NFL Combine is what attracted Bill Belichick.
