Recapping the Patriots' draft with four main points: 1. Back to their roots with volume; 2. Dizzying trades set team up well for 2019 draft; 3. Did they do enough to help the defense?; 4. Was waiting until the top of the seventh round to take a QB the right call?
Here are the Patriots' picks in the 2018 draft: 1a. Isaiah Wynn, LT/G, Georgia; 1b. Sony Michel, RB, Georgia; 2. Duke Dawson, CB, Florida; 5. Ja'Whaun Bentley, LB, Purdue; 6a. Christian Sam, LB, Arizona State; 6b. Braxton Berrios, WR/PR, Miami; 7a. Danny Etling, QB, LSU; 7b. Keion Crossen, CB, Western Carolina; 7c. Ryan Izzo, TE, Florida State.
The Patriots selected LSU quarterback Danny Etling with the initial pick of the seventh round (No. 219 overall). Etling is 6-foot-2 4/8 and 222 pounds. He played in 37 career games (35 starts) and was 563 of 973 (57.9 percent) for 7,076 yards with 43 TDs and 19 TDs. He began his career at Purdue (2013-2014) before transferring to LSU (2016-2017). He is considered a pro-style quarterback with a strong arm.
The Patriots traded a sixth-round pick (No. 198) to the Chiefs for two seventh-round picks -- Nos. 233 and 243. Such a trade could help the Patriots draft an extra player they would have otherwise been competing against as an undrafted free agent. Also, the level of player the Patriots would have picked at 198 is the same as what they would be picking late in the seventh round in this draft, as the difference is negligible based on their actions.
