While we’ll have plenty of time to break down the Detroit Lions’ surprising pick of Arkansas center Frank Ragnow in the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft, let’s take a moment to witness the moment that changed Ragnow’s life forever.

Camera crews were on hand when Ragnow received the call from the Detroit Lions and the moment is as heartwarming as you’d expect:

Though we can only hear Ragnow’s side of the conversation, we see how emotional and excited his entourage is as Ragnow talks to general manager Bob Quinn and team owner Mrs. Ford. And when he hangs up the phone, he’s got a smile as wide as can be, showered in love and affection from his family and friends.

Ragnow was a four-year contributor at Arkansas, posting the two best Pro Football Focus grades for a center in the PFF era, and will instantly be a fixture at center for the Lions in 2018.
