After a roller coaster ride on day 1 and 2 of the draft, the Patriots are still left with 7 picks on day 3.  The pick of Malcom Brown left most fans feeling very good about the draft, but after a couple of questionable picks yesterday, we are left scratching our heads and wondering what the Patriots have planned for today.  There is still plenty of talent left on the board at positions the Patriots could actually use help. Hopefully the Patriots can use those picks to lift the spirits of its fanbase and end the draft on a high note.

Well, the first round of the 2015 NFL draft has come and gone.  The round actually went really quick with a lot less fanfare than most of us were expecting.  Leading up to last night, we had heard all the rumors about teams wanting to trade up or down and we were so sure the draft was going to hinge on who traded up for Marcus Mariota.  As expected, there was a big run on offensive lineman, wide receivers and cornerbacks.  We saw not one, but two runningbacks drafted after a two year hiatus from the first round.  The biggest intrigue may have happened at the very end of the round when the Patriots opted out of a trade with the Texans because a big time player fell into their laps. Here are my thoughts on Malcom Brown and what we might see happen tonight.
