What did draft pick in Mohamed Sanu trade ultimately become?


Although the Patriots ultimately made two second-round selections in the 2020 NFL Draft, they went into the draft without a pick in that round.

That's because they traded it to Atlanta last season for wide receiver Mohamed Sanu prior to the trade deadline.

The pick turned into being No. 55 overall, but the Falcons traded it to the Ravens for tight end Hayden Hurst.

So, Baltimore ultimately had the Patriots' second-round selection last weekend and with the pick it selected Ohio State running back J.K. Dobbins.

“This was a guy that was, in my opinion, one of the very best in college football this year,” Ravens GM Eric DeCosta told reporters. “He's a very talented guy with electric skills and played at a very high level in a really good conference (on) one of the best teams in college football, so we're excited to get him. He fits us, and I think he's going to be a guy that is going to be a dangerous player for us and give us the depth to do what we like to do.”

Dobbins rushed for over 2,000 yards and 21 touchdowns last fall.

Sanu had offseason ankle surgery and it's unclear when he will be back to full strength, although it is worth noting the team did not draft any receivers.

The Patriots ultimately landed safety Dugger (No. 37 overall) and EDGE Josh Uche (No. 60 overall) in Round 2 thanks to a number of trades, including picking up No. 37 overall after trading out of Round 1.
