The Patriots need offensive linemen and Wynn fits the bill, especially as a versatile player who can play tackle, guard and center.

The first Butkus Award victor in Georgia football history became the first Southeastern Conference player selected during Thursday night's opening round of the NFL draft.

After adding Isaiah Wynn earlier, the Patriots double down on Bulldogs prospects with the addition of Michel. New England's backfield is crowded on paper, but Rex Burkhead, James White, Jeremy Hill and Mike Gillislee are all role players. They put Coach Belichick on the phone and he said, 'We're thinking about taking you with the next pick.' I told my friends and they all took off running. Michel is a big-play waiting to happen. With their second pick in the first round, the Patriots added another Georgia player in running back Sony Michel. "However they get here, they get here", Caserio said.

After a couple of ho-hum years at the draft with no first-round picks, this year is once again must-see viewing from a Patriots perspective.

As for what he's doing in retirement, he described it this way: "Daddy day care, enjoying the free time with my kids, being involved with everything I truly missed during years of playing football". "I can't wait to get up to Chicago and go to work". They are scheduled to go through meetings and have dinner with National Football League commissioner Roger Goodell as part of their involvement in the draft.

So Wynn likely isn't the replacement for the departed Nate Solder to protect Brady's blindside. he is an insurance policy, however, with highly graded guard Shaq Mason entering the final year of his contract and in line for a major raise in 2019. When looking at their first two selections - No. 23 and No. 31 - the most pressing positions are inside linebacker, outside linebacker, tackle and quarterback.

After quarterback Tom Brady, who turns 41 before the season starts, two of his top targets, Julian Edelman (31) and Chris Hogan (30), are also getting up in age.

Bill Belichick's motto has always been to take the best player available, so don't be surprised if the team doesn't address one of the key needs above in the first couple picks.
