VIDEO: Dean Lowry's reaction to getting drafted by the Packers

Watch as Lowry sees his NFL dreams realized.

With the 137th pick of the NFL Draft this past weekend, the Green Bay Packers took Northwestern defensive end Dean Lowry. He was the first Northwestern player off the board; Dan Vitale was taken by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the sixth round.

Thanks to the official Northwestern Athletics twitter account, per WREX-TV, we have some of Lowry's immediate reaction to getting the call from the Green Bay brass.

It's always cool to see players' professional dreams realized, even if — for Lowry, an Illinois native — it's by the rival of his favorite childhood NFL team, the Chicago Bears. Congrats to Dean. He should be a really good fit in Green Bay, where GM Ted Thompson and head coach Mike McCarthy always seem to get the most out of their players.
