FOXBORO — Not many people within the confines of Gillette Stadium know Kevin Faulk better than running backs coach Ivan Fears.

Fears coached Faulk from 2002 to the end of his career in 2011, so he wasn’t surprised at Faulk wearing a Tom Brady jersey under his jacket when announcing the Patriots’ third-round pick Friday night at the NFL draft.

In fact, he knew Faulk would do something to support Brady, he just didn’t know what it would be.

“Fantastic. Fantastic,” Fears said Monday of what he thought of Faulk’s choice. “You know that’s my boy. If anyone could go out there and do the right thing — you know Kevin and [Tom] Brady are [tight]. You know he was going to do something. I was just waiting to see. I loved it.”

Faulk is also up for the Patriots’ Hall of Fame this summer and Fears said he has his vote.

“He’s got my vote, you know that guys,” he said. “He’s got my vote. What he did here and what he’s been able to do for this program for the years I have been here. The kind of guy, leadership role, definitely my guy.”

FOXBORO — Kevin Faulk surprised a lot of people when he showed up to the NFL draft Friday night to announce the Patriots’ third-round pick with a Tom Brady jersey under his sport jacket — showing support for the quarterback who had his four-game suspension reinstated earlier in the week.

A lot of people throughout Patriot Nation approved of the attire, even Bill Belichick.

“Love Kevin. He always makes good decisions,” Belichick said Saturday night following the draft. “Looked sharp out there.”

Faulk explained the move to WEEI.com’s Chris Price earlier in the day.

“It was a move that wasn’t about me,” Faulk said. “It was a move in support of my brother. We’ve been together for a long time, and it was a way for me to show support for Tom.”

He also said Brady texted him afterwards giving his approval.

When announcing the pick, Faulk said, “With the 78th pick in the 2016 NFL draft, the New England Patriots and Tom Brady select Joe Thuney.”

FOXBORO — Kevin Faulk pretty much secured his spot in the Patriots Hall of Fame Friday night when he strolled on stage to announce the Patriots third-round pick wearing a Tom Brady jersey.

Faulk, who spent 12 years as Brady’s teammate, walked on stage wearing a blue Brady No. 12. Standing next to executive vice president of football operations Troy Vincent — who has played a central role in the Deflategate scandal — he announced: “With the 78th pick in the 2016 NFL draft, the New England Patriots and Tom Brady select Joe Thuney.”

On Saturday, Faulk walked through the decision.

“There was a process where you got on the green room, and the woman from the NFL comes to get you to bring you to the stage,” Faulk said to WEEI.com. “The person who came to get me, she was a huge Patriots fan. She said, ‘Oh, I love it.’ I got out there, and I heard some cheers and some boos. There will always be some negatives and some positives, but it was mostly positive.”

Faulk said he got a text from Brady afterward. He wouldn’t share the details of the message, but gave the general gist of what the quarterback said.

“Let’s just say that were all all brothers from a different mother,” Faulk said with a laugh.

“It was a move that wasn’t about me,” he added. “It was a move in support of my brother. We’ve been together for a long time, and it was a way for me to show support for Tom.”

Earlier this week, a three-judge panel of the Second U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Manhattan ruled 2-to-1 that Brady must serve a four-game suspension to start the 2016 regular season.

“That’s why Kevin Faulk is a potential member of the Patriots Hall of Fame,” Patriots director of player personnel Nick Caserio said with a smile late Friday when asked about Faulk’s move. “We all love Kevin Faulk. Nobody more than Mr. Kraft, Coach Belichick and I was actually able to develop a real good relationship with Kevin Faulk. Kevin Faulk’s one of the best Patriots on a multitude of levels and I think he certainly showed that tonight.”

FOXBORO — It was the most Patriotic moment of the night at the NFL Draft. And Nick Caserio and the Patriots personnel loved it.

“The New England Patriots AND Tom Brady select Joe Thuney, linebacker, North Carolina State!” Kevin Faulk said with authority.

The former Patriots running back, who is up for selection to the Patriots Hall of Fame this year, wanted it to be known that he and the Patriots disapprove of the league winning its appeal with the Second District Appellate Court that reinstated Brady’s four-game suspension for Deflategate.

What did Caserio think?

“That’s why Kevin Faulk is a potential member of the Patriots Hall of Fame,” said Caserio, the Patriots player personnel director who spoke about the Patriots four draft picks on Friday. “We all love Kevin Faulk. Nobody more than Mr. Kraft, Coach Belichick and I was actually able to develop a real good relationship with Kevin Faulk.

“Kevin Faulk’s one of the best Patriots on a multitude of levels and I think he certainly showed that tonight.”
