Arizona Wildcats football: NFL Draft social media reactions

After not having a player selected last year in the NFL Draft, Arizona had two go back-to-back Saturday with defensive end Roy Lopez and running back Gary Brightwell going in the sixth round with picks 195 and 196.

Lopez was selected by the Houston Texans, who have drafted Arizona defensive linemen Earl Mitchell and Brooks Reed in the past.

Brightwell was selected by the New York Giants, making him Arizona’s first running back selected in the draft since 2014 when Ka’Deem Carey went 117th overall to the Chicago Bears. 

Here’s social media reactions from Lopez and Brightwell getting selected in the NFL Draft:
