Michigan DE Aidan Hutchinson says that he grew up a Patriots fan but has no problem being drafted by the Lions, who recently won their first game and could eventually shake up the draft order.
“The Lions have been struggling for a while,” Hutchinson said, via Kyle Meinke of MLive.com. “I actually grew up a Patriots fan with Tom Brady and stuff like that. So, I never really loved the Lions too much. But, hey, if they pick me, they’re getting it all. It was hard being a Lions fan.”
