For Bill Belichick and the Patriots to spend a first-round pick on a running back, they must really be enamored with his talent. Even in splitting time with Nick Chubb at Georgia, Michel flashed incredible skill and potential. With Dion Lewis now in Tennessee, Michel will have ample opportunity to take a firm hold of the starting role this season.
