The New England Patriots didn’t wait for the NFL draft to resume to continue their perpetual quest to improve the roster.
Friday, the AFC champs sent their third-round pick, 95th overall, to the San Francisco 49ers for massive tackle Trent Brown and the Niners’ fifth rounder.
The Bengals used their first-round selection on center Billy Price and can now work on improving the defensive line with their second-rounder. Harrison Phillips is a powerful defender who can tackle with the best of them. Thanks to his intangibles and run-stuffing ability, this young man should become an immediate starter for Cincy.
The Cardinals had one of the most interesting starts to the draft, grabbing a player many thought could potentially go as high as No. 1 overall with the No. 10 pick in Josh Rosen. They’d be wise to bring in a young receiver to develop alongside the UCLA product, and Christian Kirk is a good choice to accomplish that. He’s a speedy, hard-working wideout who should make an immediate impact out of the slot.

Alexander apologized – though of course, no apology was necessary – then explained, it’s surreal. It’s great. My boy Lamar!

Not only did Gettleman view Penn State running back Saquon Barkley as the premier overall prospect in the 2018 NFL Draft class, but the Giants are officially all-in with 37-year-old Eli Manning and an offense loaded with playmakers.
Now it’s time to build the offense into one of the NFL’s best.
