Patriots select in first round — Sony Michel

Patriots select in first round — Sony Michel”

My take: The Patriots' top need entering the draft was left tackle, and if Wynn ultimately fills that void, this will be a pick in which top talent meets top need.

Wynn, 6 feet 3 and 313 pounds, played left tackle last season and did it well, but that height makes him an National Football League guard. And as long as he plays in 2018, his re-draft value should be fine.

Oh, and another former Bulldog, Malcolm Mitchell, is also on the Patriots.

Michel, from Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, was rated a 5-star prospect in the class of 2014, and he was ranked as the nation's No. 20 overall player, the No. 3 overall running back and the state of Florida's No. 3 overall prospect, according to 247Sports Composite Rankings. He underwent surgery on his labrum in January, but believes he'll be ready for New England's minicamp in June. Regardless, the team won't rush him.

"I've talked to those quite a bit, especially when they have their off weeks", Michel said. "I shot him a couple texts". As a person, it's kind of rough getting adjusted.

My take: The question wasn't whether the Patriots would select a running back after going three straight drafts without doing so, it was a matter of when.

The shifty backfield weapon will likely help fill the void created by the free agent departure of Dion Lewis. This is a exciting landing spot for Michel. As a great player in college, Michel does come with some injury concerns.

Despite that outstanding form, some appear to believe Jackson should put himself through the extremely hard challenge of trying to learn a new position at the highest level of the sport and switch to wide receiver, with some teams even reportedly asking him to work out at that spot. They were also roommates at Georgia.

This draft is full of value running backs who can be drafted in the middle rounds and Hines seems like a solid fit for New England. Although he didn't catch many passes at Georgia, Michel has the skill set to post bigger numbers in the passing game in the NFL.

The Patriots had not only watched every single play of his college career, but they visited him in Louisville and then had him at Gillette Stadium. "I think he's the future of what pro football could be". But more than that, they have two more picks in Saturday's second round.
