New England traded down often in 2018 to add future capital, and it paid off this year. As usual, the Patriots moved up and down the board to get the guys they wanted, and this class has it all — a new weapon for Tom Brady, a potential successor at QB, versatile front-seven players and depth on the offensive line. Perhaps the only question mark is Bill Belichick taking a right-footed punter.
Best pick: Rashan Gary got all the buzz in Ann Arbor, but Winovich was far more productive and is not exactly a slouch as an athlete. He’s technically advanced, sets a mean edge in the run game and can play in multiple spots, all things that Belichick desires in the front seven.
Upside pick: You rarely see such a tall cornerback, but Williams moves well for his size and thrives in press coverage and against contested throws. Belichick loves to match his corners up to opponents based on body type, so Williams could be a chess piece against big wideouts and tight ends.
