Future Watch: Sony Michel Rookie Football Cards, Patriots – Sony Michel was drafted by the New England Patriots with the 31st overall pick of the 2018 NFL Draft. This talented running back has big play ability and the Patriots are eager to put that to the test.
Michel played his college football at Georgia. In 2014, he was a true freshman and he played in eight games but only started one of them. The reason was he had a fractured shoulder blade and still he had 410 yards with five touchdowns.
In 2015, he was the backup. But he did get enough time, after an injury to the starter, to get 1,163 yards and eight touchdowns on the ground and three in the air.
In 2016, he played in 12 games, but had only 152 carries for 840 yards and five rushing touchdowns. His yards per carry was an impressive 5.5. Nick Chubb was still the #1.
In 2017, he made the most of his 156 carries. He gained 1,227 yards and 16 touchdowns! He add one through the air. His yards per carry was an astounding 7.9. In the Rose Bowl he split time with Chubb and gained 181 yards on 11 carries with three touchdowns on the ground and one in the air. His 27-yard run in a second overtime period was the game-winner. He was the Offensive MVP of the Rose Bowl and this moved him ahead of Chubb (drafted second round by the Browns) in scouts eyes heading into the draft.
You can find rookie cards of him in 2018 Donruss, Panini Origins, Panini National Treasures Collegiate, Elements and Immaculate Collegiate to name a few. He’s also in a few Leaf products: Valiant Draft and Flash.
