Draft update: Patriots trade up Stephen Gostkowski Jersey , draft DE EDTShareTweetShareShare2019 NFL Draft: 3 reasons why the Patriots drafted Maryland DE Byron CowartJohn David Mercer-USA TODAY SportsThe New England Patriots traded up in the fifth round to select Maryland defensive lineman Byron Cowart with the 159th overall pick in the draft. Let’s take a closer look at the developmental edge rusher to find out why New England decided to invest in him.Developmental upsideThe first word that comes to mind when describing Cowart is ‘raw.’ While he brings all the necessary physical attributes to the table to develop into a solid rotational option at the next level, he needs to improve his technique and play recognition skills in order to consistently compete against NFL-caliber blockers. What he therefore needs more than anything else at this point in his career are coaching and time.Pats Pulpit reacts to the Byron Cowart pickSubscribe to the Pats Pulpit podcast for more draft reactions!The first, he certainly will get in New England: Cowart will learn from one of the NFL’s best coaching staffs and also from veteran players such as Michael Bennett and Deatrich Wise Jr. The time he receives, on the other hand, might depend on his development and whether or not the club thinks he is worth keeping around through roster cuts — the practice squad might be a good destination for Cowart to further work on refining his skills.Positional versatilityAt 6’3, 298 pounds, Cowart has the size to both line up on the edge and the interior. Moving inside might actually be a good move given his skill set: while he is not the quickest player, he does attack the pocket with excellent power and could therefore have a future in the NFL as an interior sub-pass rusher in the mold of Adam Butler. In this sense, Cowart is a classic Patriots pick.Low risk-high reward investmentEven though the Patriots traded up to get him Womens Duke Dawson Jersey , Cowart is far from a lock to make the team. His roster outlook will likely depend on his development over the next few months and whether or not he can become a more polished defender. If he does, New England might have found a diamond in the rough in the fifth round of the draft. But even if not, the 159th selection hardly can be considered a wasted pick.At the end of the day, picking Cowart is a calculated gamble on the Patriots’ part — one that could pay solid dividends if the Maryland product is able to work through his technical shortcomings. For what was a pretty boring game, there are so many storylines from Super Bowl 53. You can talk about the defensive game plan by both coaches. The execution by the Patriots’ defense. How exceptional Stephon Gilmore was all game long. How hard the backs, mainly Sony Michel and Rex Burkhead, ran. How well the offensive line blocked two legit STUDS in Aaron Donald and Ndamukong Suh. Julian Edelman’s MVP performance. But, for me, it’s that when the Patriots needed a championship drive http://www.patriotslockerroom.com/authentic-trent-brown-jersey , Tom Brady stepped up and delivered it.When the Patriots got the ball with just under 10 minutes left and a 3-3 game, they had run nine drives. Only one of them had ended in points. New England would go on to score points on both possessions to put the Rams away, and ended up winning by 10. Brady didn’t attempt a pass on the second drive, but he did on the first, and went 4-for-4 for 67 yards. His two passes to Rob Gronkowski were beautiful, with the one that set the team up at the 2-yard line being maybe the best pass he’s thrown all postseason.Was he great all game? No. Did the Rams confuse him on his interception? They sure did, dropping Nickell Robey-Coleman out of man coverage into zone as soon as Brady released a pass to an, at the time, wide open Chris Hogan. When he got the ball on their touchdown drive Duron Harmon Jersey , he had completed only 55% of his passes, and had thrown for under 200 yards. But none of that mattered. Brady did what he’s done more than any other player in the history of his, and possibly any other, sport: he led his team to a late-game score to give it the lead. And this time, the defense had no plans on giving it up.Here’s the stat that ends any GOAT debate that anyone wants to have: Tom Brady has now led 10 drives in the fourth quarter or overtime of the Super Bowl to tie the game or take the lead. TEN! Second all time on the list is Eli Manning, with three. Joe Montana had two. There is no debate: when the game is on the line, and you need a championship drive, there’s no one better than Tom Brady. On Tuesday, the Patriots will celebrate with their 6th parade Womens Tedy Bruschi Jersey , and it’ll be a great day. But by the end of the week, Bill Belichick will be telling us how it’s difficult because they are behind in their scouting for the draft, and Tom Brady will be preparing to try to dominate the NFL again, and come home with Lombardi number seven. Because, as he has been saying, he’s still here, and he’s not planning on going anywhere anytime soon. Pat is the host of The Patriot Nation PodcastInteract with him on Twitter @plane_pats
