“WOAH”: Bill Belichick’s first-round pick in NFL draft shocked the entire league


Bill Belichick is a very difficult man to read, Head Coach and General Manager of the New England Patriots shows almost no emotion at the press, but the man’s coaching IQ and ability to identify players’ potential are off the charts.

In the NFL Draft 2022, the Patriots had the 29th overall pick in the first round, with the team expected to shoot more guns on the offensive side such as wide outs or narrow ends. But Bill Belichick surprised everyone by choosing Cole Strange, an offensive lineman from Chattanooga.

It was predicted that Cole would make it to the third or fourth round in every fake draft, the Patriots could choose players like Nakobe Dean, Andrew Booth Jr and many more. The Patriots let Shaq Mason and Ted Karras walk this post-season. This is probably one reason why patriots decided to cast Cole Strange.

According to reports, Bill Belichick believed the team would not be able to choose a lineman at a later point in the draft. Some of the funniest reactions to Patriot’s pick came from Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay,”How about that, we wasted our time watching it, thinking maybe it would be in 104.

The reason Bill chose Cole was because “He is tall, athletic. He is physically tough. He’s an aggressive player, I think he has a good combination of skills, running and passing, movement, length and power, it’s all going to be better again. As they would with any player coming from college to the National Football League. But I think he has a good skill set and is a smart player out there who makes a lot of good decisions like inlines, timing, when to land and combo blocks.

Speaking to Cole Strange, he described his playing style as “aggressive and relentless”. The Patriots have experience selecting players from the final rounds and turning them into gems. The best example is the goat Tom Brady himself. Other examples are Kyle Dugger, who was drafted early in the second round of the 2019 draft and became a good player for the team.
