SALT LAKE CITY – Former Utes linebacker Devin Lloyd paid tribute to his time at the University of Utah with a special suit he’ll wear for the 2022 NFL Draft.

The NFL Draft takes place in Las Vegas from April 28-30. Lloyd is widely projected to go in the first round on Thursday night.

Hours before the opening round of the draft, the Utah football Twitter account shared photos of Lloyd in a unique suit.

Multiple photos from Lloyd’s time at Utah were sewn into the inside of the linebacker’s maroon-colored suit.

Some of the photos feature Lloyd by himself and others include his teammates.
