My Favorite AFC East Draft Picks
New England Patriots
32nd overall N'Keal Harry WR Arizona State
The New England Patriots deserve an A+ for their draft. They started their draft with adding an instant impact player in N'Keal Harry. Harry is a BALLER! He has the combination of size, explosion, and great hands. I think Harry is the best pure receiver Brady's had since Randy Moss. He complements Julian Edelman well and I think that Harry will not only help the Patriots win games, but win the super bowl. One thing I noticed with Harry was that he'd struggle to get off the line versus press and who better to learn from than Julian Edelman. Harry was my number two rated receiver in the class and I believe he'll have the greatest impact out of all the rookie receivers.
75th overall Devin Singletary RB FAU
Heart over height, right? Well that is the case for Devin Singletary; despite only being 5'7, Singletary was one of the best running backs in the class. He doesn't avoid contact and has the best "cuts" out of all the running backs in the draft class. He had a ton of production at Florida Atlantic and now he gets to learn from two of the greatest running backs to ever do it. Let's start with Frank Gore, arguably a top 3 running back of all time. Now Singletary gets to pick his brain every day and can really develop into an "NFL" every down back. He also has Lesean McCoy... a running back who is known for his moves once he gets the ball in his hands. I don't see Singletary getting a ton of production straight out the gates, but I think within a year or two we see him leading Buffalo's backfield.
New York Jets
3rd overall Quinnen Williams DT Alabama
There's a lot of drama going down in the Jets' locker room right now, but you can't deny that they killed it with the third overall pick. Quinnen Williams was my number one rated player in this draft... and the Jets got him at three. Williams is beyond just a dominant force from the interior, he's a game changer from the interior. His first step quickness will give centers and guards nightmares in the AFC East. I think between Quinnen and Leonard Williams, the Jets now have a top 3 interior defensive line in the NFL. The Jets have been trying to dethrone Brady for the past 2 decades, and this move could be a big help.
234th overall Myles Gaskins RB Washington
As a UCLA fan, I watched a whole lot of PAC-12 games this year and Myles Gaskins flew under the radar his entire college career. Initially he'll start as a special teams ace, but I hope the Dolphins start to use him more as a receiver out of the back field. I think he is similar to James White and with Chad O'Shea calling plays, Gaskins could be a guy who catches 50 balls a season. Gaskins is one of the biggest sleepers in the draft and I think he'll develop a bigger role with Miami as the season goes on.
