New England has picked another player.

NCAA Football: Mississippi at Vanderbilt Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

The New England Patriots have made their second pick of the 2019 NFL draft: after trading up to the 45th overall selection, the reigning world champions selected cornerback JoeJuan Williams.

#45: JoeJuan Williams

Position: Cornerback

School: Vanderbilt

Size: 6036, 211 lbs

Quick-hit analysis: Originally projected as an early mid-round selection, Williams is a physical cornerback that has a promising athletic skill set. The 21-year-old certainly could turn out to be a diamond in the rough — a potential boundary cornerback or maybe even free safety that needs to work on his technique but has a solid foundation in place.

New England gave up the 56th and the 101st selection to move up and get Williams.
