Two skills that really stood out from the 10 players the Patriots selected in the 2020 draft were athleticism and versatility, and we saw plenty of both in the video above.
A few of the Patriots draft picks played multiple positions in high school or an entirely different position than what they played in college. For example, in the video above, Dugger was catching passes as a wide receiver and playing safety in the secondary.
It remains to be seen how well the Patriots' latest draft class will turn out, but one thing we do know is these players play an exciting brand of football.
