The New England Patriots were in a fine spot for a team that came minutes from a Super Bowl title and added a few first-round picks to help this season.
It will not work like that. Running back Sony Michel is out for a preseason because of a knee problem. The news of the offensive against Isaiah Wynn, the first of the two first-round lists of patriots, was far worse.

Isaiah Wynn should contribute something, maybe start
Wynn should help an offensive line that Nate Solder lost in the offseason. Massive Trent Brown, acquired in a low-season deal with the San Francisco 49ers, is slotted in the left tackle, but Wynn was an impulse to tackle the start right.
Wynn was the 23rd overall selection of the design. The Georgia product added value to the patriot by being able to play either in the field of attack or in the guard. It just will not happen this season.
The Patriots are deep enough to lose a rookie offensive lineman. But it's not ideal to lose a talented player already, and it hurts a lot because it came in a game that does not matter.
Patriots have made many hits since last season
It was not a big off season and preseason for the Patriots. They lost a lot of talent in the offseason. Solder, cornerback Malcolm Butler, receiver Danny Amendola and running back Dion Lewis were among the players to sign elsewhere. Receiver Brandin Cooks was sold to the Rams. Receiver Julian Edelman was suspended for four games for a breach of the NFL's pro-drug policy.

The Patriots would probably be happy if the rest of the preseason were annulled.
