Tavon WilsonPosition: Safety
Drafted: Round 2, 48th overall pick
Writes Greg Bedard: This one was a big shocker, even among the NFL scouting community. Bill Belichick obviously had his reasons for drafting him, so here's a few comments from NFL scouts when asked "who is Tavon Wilson?":
"Good question. Big surprise. Tweener type. Has been a cornerback and a safety so there's some position flexibility. Little rich for me (that high in the draft)."
"Our guys didn't have him graded high. They must have seen something specific they liked."
