DE Deatrich Wise - New England Patriots
|6-5, 274||Born: 7-26-1994||College: Arkansas||Drafted: Round 4|
Wise wasn't expected to play such a key role as a rookie but he emerged as a key piece of their pass rush and finished the season with 5 sacks. He actually did very well in terms of generating pressure but was unlucky in getting to the quarterback so his numbers could have been significantly better with a few more breaks. His play against the run didn't stand out, however, so it's likely he could be limited to more of a pass-rush specialist role now that an experienced veteran like Adrian Clayborn is around. Look for him to compete for playing time with Clayborn and Derek Rivers, but he likely has the most upside thanks to his abilities as an edge rusher. (May 19)
