2014 NFL Draft: New England Patriots Trade 93rd Pick to Jacksonville

NEPD Editor: James Christensen

After drafting Dominique Easley and Jimmy Garoppolo in the first two rounds of the 2014 NFL Draft, the New England Patriots traded the 93rd pick to the Jacksonville Jaguars.

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.

    Most of you guys are sick in the head. BB makes the team picks based on the info HE not YOU have. Some of you think you are so FB savy……then why not seek employment there? The Pats have made some errors in the past and have admitted to it. 3 Super Bowl titles in 10 years with 6 AFC Titles too. BB has done a great job when you bother to look at the whole picture. Our selections this year will be looked at, drilled and tested. Hopefully, they will be making an impact in a positive way. Stop seeing failure before it ever happens. I think, in my humble non-professional opinion, we will see positive results. My glass is always half full…..not half empty.

  2. GM-In-Training says:

    TE…TE…TE…Marcel Jensen? Arthur Lynch? Colt Lyerla? I also am intrigued by Logan Thomas as a conversion to TE prospect.

  3. Joe LaPorte Sr. says:

    Someone should take the car keys from BB. The window of opportunity is closing on the Brady era, and I dont see one player who can help us win the Super Bowl next year…yet. An DT with 2 bad knees? A backup QB? Ryan Mallet was a wasted 2nd round draft pick? Will Easley make us forget Ras I Dowling?

    • Brett says:

      Mallet was a third round pick and Brady is starting to show his age, it better to be too early than too late. And Easley’s knee is about 85-90% right now.

  4. Jack says:

    Someone needs to step in and take personnel acquisition responsibility away from BB. He knows how to coach over a season with the personnel he has and the schemes he can develop but he really labors to bring in talent that is needed. It seems as if he wants more wins over his career than Super Bowl wins when they are in reach
    Brady deserves to complain about this

  5. Ryan says:

    Honestly I seriously dislike this trade. We already have two 6th round picks and I doubt that another will fill a serious, immediate need for the franchise. I don’t feel like this is a good idea at all with eyes towards the rapidly diminishing TE talent and the soon-to-be-grabbed SS talent. I would’ve even preferred to see a large WR like Martavis Bryant snatched up at that spot to give Brady another big target.

    That being said, here’s an idea of how the rest of the draft could play out:

    4th: Devonta Freeman, RB
    4th: Craig Loston, SS
    4th: Russell Bodine, C/G
    6th: Antone Exum, CB
    6th: Wesley Johnson, G/T
    6th: Jeremiah George, ILB
    7th: Quincy Enunwa, WR

  6. Dan Sullivan says:

    I can understand Pats fans frustration as first two picks are more for future than
    immediate help for team. This a very deep draft that could end up looking very
    good.

    4 Jones NT Penn State
    4 Williams RB BC
    4 Dixon S Baylor
    6 Lynch TE Georgia
    6 Stork C Florida St.
    6 Smith DE Arkansas
    7 Lokombo OLB Oregon

    Dig in Pats grade C so far.

  7. Matt says:

    I really don’t think BB has a clue how to draft. They needed a DT the draft a guy that has had two torn ACL’s. They need a TE they draft an average QB. The Pats have sat there while good players have gotten picked. Is being this confused a sign that BB is getting Alzheimer’s disease?

  8. Michael says:

    I think Rex Ryan somehow gained control of the Pats war room today.
    I understand drafting for the future…could have gotten a qb in round 3 (maybe 4) and in the meantime drafted a starting guard, running back, shored up the LB’s, or even gotten a talented DE…

  9. Daniel R. Martin says:

    So, let me get this straight. Through the first three rounds of what is reportedly the most talent rich draft of at least the past decade, we have managed to do precisely nothing to improve our team. All the while the Hall of Fame career of arguably the greatest Qb to ever play the game is dwindling to a close. We get an undersized, oft injured DT (a position of less than reported need) who will likely miss the first half of the season at least, and a back up who is not supposed to ever be a starting caliber, franchise quarterback.

    I won’t be wasting time doing a mock for the Pats next year. BB couldn’t have fouled this one up any worse if he actually tried to do so.

    I better say that before tomorrow, when BB will trade all fourth round picks for seventh round picks in 2018 and use our sixth round pick to grab a long snapper.

    not a bad trade at all, imo. Doubt the Pats would win any “best draft” awards this year though – their picks have been very questionable so far, to put it mildly.

    You guys remember when you were laughing and cringing at Russell’s mock:

    QB A.J.McCarron
    LB/SS Tevlin Smith
    TE Arthur Lynch
    RB Tyler Gaffney
    WR Jeff Janis
    LB Avery Williams
    CB Aaron Colvin
    DT Zac Kerr

    Told you then BB could make us look back on this with nostalgia :)

    • RMillette says:

      In our defense, we laughed at McCarron going in the 1st. Seeing as the 3rd round is over and he’s still on the board we were right to do so. I do note dri archer is off the board to the steelers though. Interesting no?

      • acm says:

        I also didn’t like the AJM pick but gotta say the rest of that mock so far looks better than the real thing.

        Yep, Archer is off to the Steelers and luckily not the Pats. Lets see how he does in the NFL now.

        • Alex (freemanator) says:

          Err, none of those guys have gone yet. So it doesn’t look remotely better than what we’ve done.

          Taken a calculated risk on a stud Dlineman, who can play all across the line, giving us versatility and depth. Taken a guy we presumably think can be Brady’s successor, and backup for the next two or three years.

          Now I’d have waited for a late QB, and gone successor chasing in a year or twos time, but at least the player is good, a guy many thought would go early in the second.

          As for Easley, I’d have preferred Tuitt, but is effort and minor injury concerns much better than injury concerns? I’d say not much difference, and Easley has a rare skillset. To act like he’s a waste of a pick is ridiculous.

          And the trade made sense, the rest of the second round value guys had already been taken in the preceding picks. We now have three chances to pluck from a good pool of high upside developmental players in the 4th round, to fill depth and provide future starting options. Plus 4 shots to take late.

      • acm says:

        btw, I am not sure I’d take the steelers as an example of superior drafting recently. They do have the name but have missed out on the playoffs for 2 years in a row, they had one of the oldest rosters last year full of old, overpaid, over-the-hill players and the young blood from their drafts hadn’t been panning out all that well. All that while living in cap hell (they had the least cap room coming into this off-season, iirc).

        So, past glory aside, you could make an argument I did get it right when I said that if Archer got drafted earlier than 5/6th round, it would be by poorly managed franchise.

    Er ah ummm Ok………What is BB thinking on this one…….Maybe the players he wants he thinks will still be there at 105 and 179? hmmmm what is he smoking we wonder sometimes……
