In the weeks leading up to the NFL Draft the terms “value” and “draft board” get thrown around often. During the draft each team tries to maximize their picks, by selecting the player with the most value. For instance is the 2nd best Guard, more valuable than the 7th best Receiver? These are decisions the Patriots and every other team will make next week. In this post I set up a horizontal draft board to give readers an idea of potential Patriots draft targets by round and position.

Some players on this board will not be on the Patriots actual board. This is to give readers an idea of positional value and what players could be available for the Patriots to choose from in each round.
