The New England Patriots have finally made their fourth pick of the 2018 NFL draft and their first of day three: With the 143rd overall selection, the team selected linebacker Ja’whaun Bentley out of Purdue.

#143

Name: Ja’whaun Bentley

Position: Linebacker

School: Purdue

Size: 6'2, 260 lbs

Analysis: An off-the-ball linebacker that registered 272 tackles over the course of his career, Bentley is a physical player that lacks speed but comes with plenty of strength. A potential depth option and special teamer.
