PATRIOTS DRAFT TERRENCE WHEATLEY - CB - COLORADO
With the departure of Asante Samuel and Eugene Wilson, the Patriots are in desperate need of defensive backs. He's not a "stud" CB, and many draft experts predicted him being drafted much later than the 2nd round. But he's a solid player. He's had some injury trouble with his wrist, but nothing glaring. He's a good size for DB at 6' 0" 170 lbs.
In his senior year with the Buffaloes, Terrence had 5 picks and 11 passes broken up. He also had 42 tackles, 1 of which was for a loss. He also returned kicks for CU. He
returned 37 kickoffs for 919 yards (24.8 yard average).
The third round begins tomorrow morning. It should be interesting because the Patriots have three picks in the 3rd.
