Given the times, many outlets are putting together different lists and teams.
Sam Monson and Steve Palazzolo of Pro Football Focus recently put together a NFL All-Average team, which was released on the PFF NFL podcast, and two members of the Patriots made the cut -- tackle Marcus Cannon and running back Sony Michel.
Pats Pulpit transcribed the reasons given as to why Michel and Cannon were included.
Other players with New England connections named to the team were wide receiver Dontrelle Inman, offensive lineman Josh Kline, edge rusher Adrian Clayborn, defensive tackle Malcom Brown and linebacker Jon Bostic.
Michel seems deserving as he really is only as good as what his offensive line gives him. It's hard to recall him ever making a big gain on his own by running over a defender of making on miss. As for Cannon, he has a case not to be on this list as he's one of the more underrated offensive tackles in the league and made a huge improvement from early on in his career.
