The Pats beef up their offensive line in the second round

Having solidified the most important need on the field, the field general, the Patriots now move to provide supporting pieces on Day Two. New England now possesses after some astute moving around the board two premium picks in the second round with picks No. 34 and 38.

At pick 34, the team wastes no time in shoring up its next most pressing offensive need, offensive tackle. It does so in style with pick number 34 and selects huge offensive tackle, Kingsley Sumataia from BYU. The 6'6" tall and 330-pound Cougar will likely step right in as a starter for the Patriots in 2024.

The notes,

"In the passing game, his athleticism and length make it very challenging for opposing defenders to win against him. He is explosive out of his pass sets and gets good depth. He shows a good ability to mirror in pass protection and is a cerebral player when it comes to passing off stunts and games. He utilizes his length very well and creates a long path between him and the QB."

Length, pass protection ability, and smarts. This sounds like a great combination to help rebuild a position on the Patriots that needs top-to-bottom reconstruction. The Pats begin the job by setting a top cornerstone in place in Sumataia.
