Christian González’s Potential Start in the NFL Debut for the New England Patriots

The New England Patriots will begin the 2023 season against the Philadelphia Eagles and the most important thing is the tribute that the franchise will pay to Tom Brady for his career in the NFL.

However, one of the questions that has Latin fans in suspense is whether Colombian Christian González will start his first game in the NFL under the tutelage of head coach Bill Belichick.

Although the depth chart on the Patriots website claims to be unofficial, it has González as the third cornerback behind Jonathan Jones and Marcus Jones. However, ESPN and Ourlads have the Colombian as the starting CB on the right side of the defense.

The surprising thing about this is that the Oregon graduate aims to be the only rookie starter on the Patriots defense for the opening game. New England drafted defensive end Keion White in the second round and linebacker Marte Mapu in the third, but both are backups to Deatrich Wise Jr and Jahlani Tavai, respectively.

At the end of the day, the answer to whether Christian González will start on defense in his NFL debut? The answer will depend purely on Bill Belichick’s decision on the first play of the duel against the Eagles. What is known with certainty is that the native of Carrollton, Texas, will use the number 6 despite wearing 19 during training camp and preseason games.
