Draft an offensive tackle in the first round

Left tackle Isaiah Wynn had a pretty solid season protecting Brady’s blindside last season. It was his first full season as a pro, as he missed his entire rookie season with injury. Right tackle Marcus Cannon, on the other hand, struggled throughout most of the year, allowing 5.5 sacks on the season, a career worst for him.

Although the team spent a first round pick to take Wynn two years ago, using another high pick to shore up the other side of the line is probably the best route to take for New England.

Plus, Cannon’s cap number for this upcoming season is a bit high, as he’s set to make just under $9 million in 2020. Perhaps the team could use him as trade bait to move up and snag a younger tackle in the first round.

There are several tackles who project to go in the first round this year, so don’t be surprised if the Patriots end up with one of them once the draft is over.
