New England Patriots offensive tackle Isaiah Wynn suffered a torn Achilles in Thursday night's game against the Eagles. The rookie will miss the remainder of the season. The Patriots are deep throughout the offensive line and are bringing back four starters from last season. The trade to acquire Trent Brown seems more vital than ever now, as he should start at left tackle. LaAdrian Waddle should also have the right tackle position locked up with Wynn out. Even with the depth up front, losing a first-round pick like Wynn definitely hurts.
New England Patriots rookie offensive lineman Isaiah Wynn, selected 23rd overall in the first round, could be asked to play left tackle in 2018. "He's played left tackle in the best conference in America," offensive line coach Dante Scarnecchia said, via ESPN's Mike Reiss on Twitter. "Played it pretty good. We're going to take a look at it, and see how it goes." Many viewed Wynn as a left guard in the draft after he started 12 games at left guard in 2016. It's a little unsettling that a rookie could be protecting quarterback Tom Brady's blind side in 2018.
The New England Patriots selected Georgia offensive guard Isaiah Wynn at No. 23 overall in the 2018 NFL draft. He's an offensive guard, but he has the potential to play left tackle in the NFL. He was a stud in the Senior Bowl and his pass protection in college was spectacular. He's also tough, as he played through a torn labrum at the end of last season. The Pats will surely get the most out of Wynn as he is tasked with protecting the all-important Tom Brady for at least one more year.
