Versatility is the Key Attribute for Patriots DE Deatrich Wise, Jr.

When the New England Patriots selected defensive end Deatrich Wise Jr. with the 131st overall selection in the 2017 NFL Draft, the former Arkansas’s Razorback believed that he had found an ideal football home. Even before taking a snap in Foxboro, Wise was certain that his work ethic and football IQ would set him apart from his competition. He had the right attitude for success, and his physical skills translated very well into the Patriots defensive system.

As he prepares to enter his fifth season in New England, Wise has indeed become a mainstay in the Patriots pass rush.
