Offensive lineman Isaiah Wynn, the first of the New England Patriots’ two first-round draft choices, has signed with the team, the team announced on Friday.

Wynn, selected with the 23rd pick of the draft out of Georgia, agreed to a four-year contract that projects to be worth about $11.4 million, according to the NFL’s rookie wage scale.

Running back Sony Michel, the Patriots’ other first-round pick at No. 31 who was Wynn’s teammate at Georgia, is the only player in New England’s 2018 draft class who remains unsigned.

Wynn played left guard and left tackle for the Bulldogs, and Patriots offensive line coach Dante Scarnecchia said he would get a look at left tackle as the team works to find a replacement for Nate Solder.

During the Patriots’ minicamp, Wynn saw time at left guard because Joe Thuney was out following foot surgery.
