The New England Patriots got a good one.

Christian Gonzalez is considered by some to be the most talented player in the 2023 class. The veteran CB out of Oregon was selected 17th overall by the Patriots, a move some consider to be a total steal that low in the draft.

PFF tends to agree. On Saturday, they released a NFL mock draft superlatives list by writer Brad Spielberger, who chose New England’s selection of Gonzalez as the “best” pick of the draft.

Gonzalez played his final college season at Oregon after starting his career at Colorado. It was by far his best season too, seeing the 6-2 corner total 50 tackles, 4 interceptions and 7 pass breakups.

Not too shabby. Expect a lot more where that came from in the NFL.
