Perry: The Pats' young core beginning to make its mark


Voting is officially open for NBC Sports Boston's annual "20 Under 25" lists, and our Phil Perry ranked the 12 candidates from the New England Patriots.

Several of the players listed are members of the Patriots' 2020 draft class, which is actually developing into a pretty impressive group.

Rookie defensive back Kyle Dugger has made a smooth transition from Division II competition to become a key part of the team's secondary, and sixth-round pick Michael Onwenu has been one of the top rookies in the entire league regardless of position. Onwenu has strengthened an already talented offensive line with his versatility and technique. 

Which player did Perry rank No. 1? Let's find out.
