WVU continues the tradition of putting offensive linemen into the NFL with the New England Patriots’ selection of Yodny Cajuste.
Minutes after we had time to assimilate the Carolina Panthers drafting of Will Grier, the defending Super Bowl Champs selected Cajuste with the very next pick.
The pre-draft buzz over Cajuste was over his potential become a starter in the NFL if he improves upon his run defense. He as the frame to move to guard from tackle as well which is what the Patriots might do with him.
Cajuste steps into a favorable situation where he could start protecting Tom Brady sooner rather than later. New England lost Trent Brown to Oakland via free-agency and their first round pick from a year ago, Isaiah Wynn, missed the entire season with an ACL injury.
