Patriots draft Patrick Paul, OT, Houston with pick No. 68

In the third round, Wolf continues a trend of filling offensive holes with top talents by selecting the best offensive left tackle still on the board at pick No. 68, it's massive Patrick Paul from Houston.

Paul measured in at 6'7 1/2" tall and 331 pounds and ran a 5.13 forty-yard dash at the combine.
Paul also has the arm length the team needs in its next left tackle. comments on Paul,

"On my board, Paul grades out as an early Day 3 prospect in the 2024 NFL Draft. However, with his elite size, length, power, and athletic profile, NFL evaluators will likely hold him in higher regard. The frame is there to mold if Paul can develop in a few key areas.

"At 6’7″, 331 pounds, with arms safely over 36″ long, and a wingspan over seven feet, Paul passes the eye test with flying colors. He’s a dominating force of obstruction who can win simply by enveloping and outmuscling opposing rushers in pass protection. Each snap becomes a war of attrition because of his smothering profile."
