23. New England Patriots – Original Pick: Kenneth Murray Jr. (By LA Chargers via trade)
Kenneth Murray had a promising rookie season for the Chargers. The Oklahoma product racked up 107 tackles as a 16-game starter. He also dominated week 17 against Kansas City. He has some serious star potential at LB.
New Pick: Brandon Aiyuk, WR, Arizona State
Because the Chargers no longer has this selection in a re-draft, the Patriots don’t pass on the opportunity to add a dynamic playmaker like Aiyuk in round 1. The Arizona State product is a swiss army knife and is someone the Patriots would love to add to the offense.
