Patriots' Michael Onwenu gives himself surprising grade for rookie season

Michael Onwenu was one of the best rookies in the NFL last season, but that doesn't mean the New England Patriots offensive lineman is satisfied with the way he performed.

In fact, he has a surprisingly harsh take on his debut campaign.

“I probably had a ‘C,’” Onwenu told reporters Tuesday at Patriots training camp, per Nick O'Malley of MassLive. “I mean, it was a lot I messed up on. I’m trying to take in everything and trying to learn everything.”

What's his explanation for a "C" grade?

“Just a lot of stuff, I mean a lot,” Onwenu explained.
