Did the Patriots get a steal with Malcom Brown with the last pick of the 1st round?
NEPD Staff Writer: Mike Gerken
Well, the first round of the 2015 NFL draft has come and gone. The round actually went really quick with a lot less fanfare than most of us were expecting. Leading up to last night, we had heard all the rumors about teams wanting to trade up or down and we were so sure the draft was going to hinge on who traded up for Marcus Mariota. As expected, there was a big run on offensive lineman, wide receivers and cornerbacks. We saw not one, but two runningbacks drafted after a two year hiatus from the first round. The biggest intrigue may have happened at the very end of the round when the Patriots opted out of a trade with the Texans because a big time player fell into their laps. Here are my thoughts on Malcom Brown and what we might see happen tonight.
