With the 1st pick in the 2nd round being seen as a top target for teams looking to trade up, it was somewhat surprising that the Patriots stayed put and for the 2nd year in a row, they shocked with a CB selection. Ras-I Dowling, from Virginia might be a FS at the next level but it primarily a corner. A year ago he was considered one of the top talents for this draft, but an injury limited his production this year. The Patriots will be back on the clock at #56 and then at #60 but I’d expect them to trade one of those two picks.
