Were other teams trying to get back into the end of the first round to take Sony Michel, who went to the Patriots at No 31? And of Isaiah Wynn (the Pats' pick at 23), one scout says, "[expletive] stud."
Was told by multiple NFL sources that Sony Michel was being targeted by a handful of teams as draft wore on, including at least 2 (that they knew of) that were trying to get back into the end of the 1st round to take him and another that was interested in the top pick in rd 2.— Michael Giardi (@MikeGiardi) April 27, 2018
Spoke with 4 scouts/front office guys this morning on Pats pick of Isaiah Wynn. 3 say they projected him as a guard who could do tackle in a pinch. The lone wolf says "We absolutely believe he's a starting caliber tackle in this league." #shrug— Michael Giardi (@MikeGiardi) April 27, 2018
Informed an NFL front office guy of the overall consensus I had tweeted out earlier of Georgia T Isaiah Wynn. He got hot. "Wynn's an effing stud (he actually used the "f" word). He'll be starting week one and he's gonna be a Pro Bowl player. Guard?!? Guard my ass. He's a tackle."— Michael Giardi (@MikeGiardi) April 27, 2018
