Patriots Select Georgia Teammates Wynn, Michel In First Round

Getty Images Patriots select Georgia RB Sony Michel with 31st overall pick

With the ninth overall selection of the 2016 draft, Chicago tabbed outside linebacker Leonard Floyd, who has totaled 67 tackles and 11.5 sacks through his first two professional seasons.

The Patriots drafted Georgia guard/tackle Isaiah Wynn with the pick acquired from the L.A. Rams in the Brandin Cooks trade. They played on the same team when Andrews was a senior and Wynn was a freshman.

Mason Rudolph had an incredible college career at Oklahoma State and many scouts say he should have the same level of success in the NFL. The return of several key players from injury will help, but finding rookies who can contribute immediately is near the top of the team's wish list this offseason. He averaged 7.9 yards per carry and also had a receiving touchdown. And New England is getting a well-rounded running back, which complements the pass-heavy style offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels uses. He underwent surgery on his labrum in January, but believes he'll be ready for New England's minicamp in June.

Adding Michel gives the Patriots a really talented big-play threat in their backfield. The Patriots lost running back Dion Lewis to Tennessee in free agency.

Joseph Noteboom was a superb pass blocker for TCU, he played nearly every game of his collegiate career showing he is healthy and dedicated. "However they get here, they get here", Caserio said. "You put a card up on the board".

So I tore my labrum back in [the] November 18 Kentucky game. He had surgery on it in January and said he's "right on track for recovery". "Ball placement. It's something I should focus on and work on". With the loss of Malcolm Butler any depth at Corner is greatly valued by the Patriots.

Allen will be competing with little-used veteran AJ McCarron and sophomore Nathan Peterman, whose claim to fame is throwing five interceptions in a half in his first career start last season. Controls defensive linemen of all shapes in sizes with excellent leverage, a wide base, and plenty of power. For one, as stated by Williams, New England has expressed interest in the former Heisman Trophy victor. Will New England select Tom Brady's successor this year?

With the first day of the National Football League draft over, here is a look at each of the first-rounder's situation now that they are officially in the NFL.

Caserio insisted they didn't feel slighted by the move. Like I said earlier, whatever way I can contribute to the team that's the best spot for me. "But we didn't like throw any pens against the wall".
