His selection for the Patriots: WR Sammie Coates
Arguably the best athlete in all of college football, Coates isn't huge at 6-foot-1 and a little more 200 pounds, but he's a guy who can run in the 4.3 range in the 40, is exceptionally strong for his size (it shows on contested catches) and is a player who can create big plays out of very little. He averaged more than 21 yards per catch in 2014 and is the kind of player whom safeties have to be wary of. In other words, when he's not making space for himself with the ball in his hands, he can create it for others. The Patriots have the ultimate matchup threat at tight end. And while it's not their style to look here, they could use one at wide receiver.
I personally really dislike any mocks that gives the Patriots a wide receiver in the first round, especially one that's been as one dimensional as Coates has been in college. It's even more head scratching when Kiper even admits that this isn't the Patriots style.
