The New England Patriots will look to protect their new QB Drake Maye by adding some offensive line help, selecting offensive guard Layden Robinson out of Texas A&M with the No. 103 pick in the 2024 NFL Draft.

Listed at 6-foot-3, 302 pounds, Robinson uses his size to help open up holes in the run game. While his pass blocking skills brought the Aggie's draft stock down, A&M running backs feasted behind Robinson's ground-and-pound blocking ability.

At 22 years old, Robinson saw consistent improvement and development throughout his five-year college career. After being redshirted as a freshman, Robinson filled in for 10 games as a reserve, taking over the starting right guard role in 2021. Maintaining his starting role for his final three seasons, Robinson earned second team All-SEC honors twice.

Throughout his freshman and sophomore seasons, Robinson allowed zero QB pressures or sacks across 54 snaps. Taking on his bigger role in 2021, seeing 622 snaps, the offensive guard allowed just eight quarterback pressures while still holding back any sacks.

Through his final two seasons, playing 754 and 691 snaps, respectively, Robinson allowed just five combined sacks.

The Patriots have used the 2024 draft to focus solely on offense so far, selecting Drake Maye with their No. 3 pick, adding a weapon in receiver Ja'Lynn Polk at No. 37, and additionally bolstering their o-line with tackle Caedan Wallace at pick No. 68.
