New England Patriots: Twitter reaction to selection of Sony Michel

New England Patriots: Twitter reaction to selection of Sony Michel

And while Belichick isn't into drafting players for need, per se, he's about getting great value and bringing in good football players. One could even say defensive back and tight end had bigger voids than running back. This year's tackle class isn't deep, but there are a couple of first-round options.

If a starting-caliber tackle is available in the first round, go for it.

Georgia set a program record by landing three players in the first round of the National Football League draft. The Redskins used their second-round pick past year on Alabama defensive end Ryan Anderson. A corner like Hughes, who, per PFF, allowed only 34 receptions for 301 yards with less than 2 yards after contact per reception in 2017, along with a 43.8 passer rating (with four interceptions and nine pass breakups), adds depth and youth to the Vikings corners.

Going fourth among SEC players Thursday night was Arkansas center Frank Ragnow, who was selected 21st by the Detroit Lions.

They used the seventh overall selection on 6-5, 237-pound Josh Allen, who has a ridiculously strong but alarmingly inaccurate arm.

Rashaan Evans proved through his years at Alabama that he can be a serious problem for opposing offenses. "My mom actually fainted on the red carpet, so I had to make sure she was OK". "I would leave the house with family and friends to take a walk, and at one point, I got a phone call from the Patriots".




But after a season that ended with a national championship appearance, the Bulldogs saw Roquan Smith (eighth overall, Chicago Bears), Isaiah Wynn (23rd overall, New England Patriots) and Sony Michel (31st overall, New England Patriots) all drafted in the first round.

Though he's a little undersized to play tackle in the NFL, Wynn thrived at both guard and tackle in the college ranks.

It'll be interesting to see how the Patriots utilize Michel, but Bill Belichick got his man and there's a reason behind this pick that we will realize soon enough.

SC tight end Hayden Hurst gave the SEC seven of the top 25 players when he was picked 25th by the Baltimore Ravens.

Give Bill Belichick two picks in the first round and four picks in the top 63, and it's hard not to think that tonight there will be some fireworks, most playing out behind the scenes, of course.
