Former Minot State offensive lineman Sebastian Gutierrez was signed to the New England Patriots' practice squad on Wednesday, Oct. 5.

The 6-foot-6, 295-pound rookie offensive lineman signed as a free agent and spent training camp with Denver but did not make the Broncos' 53-man roster.

Guttierrez was the first Minot State player to get a shot at the NFL since former Beaver and current North Dakota State assistant coach Randy Hedberg was drafted by Tampa Bay in 1977.

Guttierrez enrolled at Minot State as a tight end and caught five passes for 32 yards during his redshirt freshman season in 2017.

After moving to the Beavers' offensive line, he earned Vice President of Academic Affairs Honor Roll honors his junior season and was named a Second Team AFCA Division II Coaches' All-American. He also earned a spot on the D2Football.com's Elite 100 Team and was a All-Northern Sun Intercollegiate selection last season.
