If you read this blog regularly, you’d know that I know a lot about the draft. A lot. However, the Patriots’ 58th overall selection in this draft, was never on my radar.
The right tackle from Houston has great size at nearly 6-8. He is a hard worker, and has risen up draft boards since the end of the regular season. However, he lacks strength and is very stiff in the hips.
Apparently, the Patriots saw something they really liked in Vollmer. However, with players like William Beatty and Jarron Gilbert on the board, this pick really amazes me.
Well, in Belichick we trust. Maybe Vollmer can be the right tackle of the future.
