With the 17th pick, the New England Patriots select…

Nate Solder, OT, Colorado

6-9, 315 pounds

The Patriots have a need at offensive tackle and Solder potentially can play on both the right and left side. He's a gifted athlete who has the ability to bend and create leverage in the run game. However, he's a real boom or bust type pick who might need to be brought along slowly if the Patriots want him to be successful.
