Read up on compensation and analysis of who they passed on.
Trading out of the 93rd picks nets the New England Patriots a fourth-round pick (105 overall) and a sixth-round pick (179 overall). The Patriots now have three fourth-round picks and seven overall selections on Day 3 of the 2014 NFL Draft.
The Patriots passed up on a few prospects that could have helped immediately, but many could still be there in the fourth round. If Bill Belichick is able to get the same player at 105 that he would and add another sixth-round pick,
Terrance West (RB, Townson) was picked late in the third round, but would have looked nice as a successor to Stevan Ridley. Devanta Freeman (RB, Florida State) could be another option. Brandon Coleman (WR, Rutgers) is a huge target that could help on deep balls and in the red zone. DaQuan Jones (DL, Penn State) could add some additional bulk and depth to the defensive line.
Pierre Desir (CB, Lindenwood) is a small-school sleeper with the size and length to compete in the NFL. David Yankey (OL, Stanford) might the biggest non-quarterback name available on Day 3 and could compete for a guard position in 2014 or 2015.
