2014 NFL Draft: Post-Senior Bowl Patriots Mock Draft

Saturday, January 25th, 2014

Upgrading the run defense should be the Patriots priority early in the draft. 

NEPD Editor: Mike Loyko

With the Patriots season coming to a screeching halt last weekend, it seems NFL Draft fever has hit New England fans in full force. My inbox fills up daily with questions asking who the Patriots will pick or which prospects are “Patriot” type players. This year the Patriots hold their full allotment of selection (slight alteration) and I anticipate them to add at least two compensatory selections. With the team so close and the window on the Tom Brady era inching closed, there’s no denying the importance of adding impact players through this draft. Between now and May (ugh), plenty of speculation, rumors, and inuendo will occur, but as of January 25, this is how I project the Patriots draft to unfold.

It’s hard to believe that the 2013 football season is almost at the halfway point. By now the Patriots and their fans have a pretty good grasp at the strengths and weaknesses of their football team, as well as areas that need to be addressed in the future. Despite a tumultouous off-season the Patriots have kept up with their winning ways, but have done so in a much different fashion.

The 2014 draft will give the Patriots another opportunity to restock the cubbord and fills holes that were created in the past year. What could the Patriots 2014 draft class look like? Here is my early projection.

Zero hour is before us. After months and months of speculation the 2013 NFL Draft is finally here. It’s without a doubt the most exciting time of the season for most fans.

The New England Patriots’ best chance to improve their roster is less than three weeks away, when the 2013 NFL Draft begins.

With only five total picks in this year’s draft and only three within the first six rounds, it is important for the Patriots to maximize their selections for both value and need, especially with their picks in Round 1-3.
