Patriots' Christian Barmore reflects on rookie season with simple promise originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston

The New England Patriots hit a home run with their second-round pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.

The Patriots traded up to select Alabama defensive tackle Christian Barmore, who fell to pick No. 38 overall despite being a first-round talent, and he played a key role in the Patriots defense as a rookie both as a pass rusher and run stopper.

After the team's season ended in frustrating fashion with a 47-17 loss to the Buffalo Bills in the AFC Wild Card Round on Saturday night, Barmore went on Twitter to react to the 2021 campaign and make a promise for next season.

Barmore wasn't the only impressive rookie from the Patriots' 2022 draft class.

Starting quarterback Mac Jones had a strong season, too. He led all rookie quarterbacks in pretty much every statistical category and gives the Patriots a bright future on offense.
