Mazel Tov to the newest Jew in the NFL, Mitchell Schwartz. Schwartz was drafted early in the second round with pick #37 by the Cleveland Browns.

In more good news immediately after the draft the St. Louis Rams picked up, former TGR interviewee, Alex Hoffman-Ellis who could make the team as a special teams player. HERE is our interview with Hoffman-Ellis. HERE is a small piece on Hoffman-Ellis as well.
Also, the Detroit Lions signed William & Mary TE Alex Gottlieb who announced it on his Twitter page. Click HERE to read more.
As of now these are the only Jewish players we can confirm but there were many players drafted or signed with Jewish last names. If anyone knows anything about Patrick Schiller (NIU), Michael Cosgrove (Idaho), Brad Herman (Iowa), Josh Norman (Coastal), Ryan Miller (Colorado), Scott Solomon (Rice), Jeremy Ebert (Northwestern), and David Mok (Michigan).
And Let Us Say…Amen.
