“It was all a blur.”
That’s how Hjalte Froholdt describes the phone call that changed his life. On Saturday, Froholdt was selected by the New England Patriots with the 118th pick in the 4th round of the 2019 NFL Draft.
The former Arkansas offensive lineman says he spoke with Patriots head coach, Bill Belichick, and former Arkansas head coach, Bret Bielema. Once he heard the words, “we’re about to draft you,” Froholdt began to tear up and realized his dream of becoming an NFL player were coming true.
In the sitdown interview above, Hjalte discusses a number of topics including speaking with Bielema, the advice he received from friends and how it feels to be joining the Patriots organization.
