Reviewing The Pats’ 2016 Draft [VIDEO]

The New England Patriots added some new players into the fray after the weekend and it’s time to delve into the strengths and weaknesses of each new guy to see what we can expect in 2016 and beyond.  The Pats added some help in their secondary, offensive line, wide receiver core, and picked up a new quarterback too.  Listed below are all the selected Patriots and some of the good and bad points from them all as detailed in their draft profiles on NFL.com

Round 2: Selection 60 Overall – Cyrus Jones (CB – Alabama)

According to his profile, the cornerback is confident, strong and is able to play his position with good strength.  Jones was consistently beat by receivers in the early part of his career in Alabama, but worked at his craft with Head Coach Nick Saban to become one of the best defenders on the Crimson Tide.  The knocks on him are that he can get beat by receivers going over him and needs to get better awareness in coverage.

Round 3: Selection 78 Overall – Joe Thuney (G – NC State)

Thuney is a versatile offensive lineman who played right tackle, left tackle, right guard, and left guard while with the Wolf Pack during his career.  He is a 6’5” player that is credited for his strong run blocking and ability to create lanes for the rusher as a three year starter at NC State.  The critiques on the lineman are that he may be slightly undersized for the professional ranks at this time and may be better suited playing guard than tackle.

Round 3: Selection 91 Overall – Jacoby Brissett (QB – NC State)

Brissett is a very strong armed QB that is proficient at moving the chains when he’s on the field.  He transferred to the Wolfpack after originally committing to Florida and started every contest for the past two seasons.  The knocks on Brissett are that his thrown passes tend to sink more than his counterparts and that he may have picked up some bad habits scrambling from the pocket playing in the ACC.
