New England Patriots 2023 Draft Selection Round 1

updated 30 Apr 2023

Christian Gonzales, Oregon CB

6'1" 197 lb

4.38 40 yrd Dash

This player is an explosive cornerback who possesses a unique combination of physical and athletic abilities. With his fluid hips and impressive top-end speed, Gonzalez has the potential to match up well against elite targets in the future. He is able to disrupt a receiver's release or use precise footwork from press-man coverage and has the necessary skills to become an effective route shadow. However, at times, his technique may falter and he may lack the instincts and ball skills needed for consistent success.
