Three-time Patriots Super Bowl champion and all-around hero Joe Andruzzi is expected to announce New England's first pick Thursday night during the NFL draft at Radio City Music Hall, according to the Herald's Karen Guregian.

Andruzzi tweeted Thursday afternoon that he was looking forward to being back in his home of New York City. Andruzzi was among the people helping out at last week's Boston Marathon tragedy. His three brothers, all New York firefighters, were among the first responders on 9/11.
After the bombings at the Marathon finish line, Andruzzi was seen carrying a victim to safety, but he told the Globe's Greg Bedard the next day, "I am definitely not a hero. I am just a bystander, and that led to my help.
"Many heroes that I look upon are people like my three brothers that are running into burning buildings when others are running out. Explosions are going off, and they are driving their cars down Boylston [Street] right into the heart of the scene. They are the people that don't care about their safety and are worried for other people's safety and survival.”
