The Patriots have selected Brandon Tate, WR, North Carolina. Brandon is recovering from an ACL/MCL Tear he suffered in October, and also reportedly failed a drug test. Mike Mayock states that Tate won’t play in 2009 due to his injury, but should be primed to compete in 2010.
PatriotsExaminer has more on the gamble that was the Brandon Tate pick.
Tate addresses our #3 priority on the day, which was to upgrade WR depth, so we give this pick a solid B+.
