New England Patriots select Tavon Wilson, Grade F

This is the biggest reach of the draft and the worst 2nd round pick since the Raiders reach for Mike Mitchell in 2009.

The New England Patriots do a great job managing the draft with trades, but every so often Bill Belichick gets too cute and tries to out-smart everyone else, but only ends up out-smarting himself. Wilson is a special teams player who lacks the basic skills to start in the NFL. I don’t see any possible way this selection proves to be worthwhile for the Patriots.
