On Saturday, the Philadelphia Eagles basically replaced Nick Foles and gave Carson Wentz some insurance when they used a fifth-round pick (167th overall) on former Northwestern signal-caller Clayton Thorson.
After he was selected, cameras were in place to show the reaction from Thorson and his family. As soon as he stood up, his older brother was right there trying to shake his hand, he was met with Thorson leaning down to hug his wife.
After he was done, he tried again, but was met yet again with Thorson turning away from him to apparently hug their mom.
The 6-foot-4, 222-pound Thorson finished his college career as the school’s all-time leader in wins (36), passing for 10,731 yards and 61 touchdowns against 45 interceptions in four seasons.
He’s also very mobile, running for 408 yards and scoring 27 touchdowns on the ground.
