New England Patriots[edit]

Wynn was drafted by the New England Patriots with the 23rd overall pick in the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft, using a pick acquired from the Los Angeles Rams in a trade that sent Brandin Cooks to Los Angeles.[7]

He was the second of six Georgia Bulldogs to be selected that year.[8] In addition, Wynn and Sony Michel were the first pair of college teammates selected by the same team in the first round since Auburn players Jason Campbell and Carlos Rogers were taken in the 2005 NFL Draft by the Washington Redskins.[9]

2018 season[edit]

In the second game of the preseason, Wynn suffered a torn Achilles and was ruled out for the 2018 season.[10] He was placed on injured reserve on September 1, 2018.[11] Without Wynn, the Patriots won Super Bowl LIII against the Los Angeles Rams 13-3.

2019 season[edit]

Wynn entered the 2019 season as the Patriots starting left tackle. In Week 2, Wynn suffered a toe injury in the Patriots 43–0 shutout win against the Miami Dolphins.[12] On September 17, 2019, the Patriots placed Wynn on injured reserve as a result of the toe injury he suffered in Week 2 against the Miami Dolphins.[13] He was designated for return from injured reserve on October 30, 2019, and began practicing with the team again. He was activated on November 19, 2019.[14]
