The Patriots are drafting Michigan linebacker Cameron McGrone late in the fifth round of the draft.
McGrone has a 6’1 frame, and weighs 234 pounds. He was a five star recruit coming out of high school.
At Michigan, McGrone was an honorable mention for All-Big Ten honors. He accumulated 66 tackles, 9.5 of them for loss, and 4 sacks in 2018. In 2020, McGrone started just five games due to injury, but still amassed 26 tackles across the limited games.
Notable linebackers already on the roster include Matthew Judon, Kyle Van Noy, Dont’a Hightower, Ja’Whaun Bentley, Josh Uche, and Chase Winovich.
