With the draft approaching fast, we’re laying out here where the Patriots draft slots fall. You know about the three second-round picks, and that the team has no third round selections. They don’t have a fifth round pick either. But did you realize that the three second picks are all within nine picks of each other? You might have heard about the five seventh round picks, three of which are compensatory and fall within four picks near the end of the round. Those slots might be used on players who otherwise might be targeted as undrafted free agents.
Here’s how the entire Patriots draft lays out:
#44 overall (From Jacksonville)
#47 overall (From Tennessee)
#231 overall (From Philadelphia)
#247 overall (compensatory)*
#248 overall (compensatory)*
#250 overall (compensatory)*
*As a reminder, compensatory picks cannot be traded.
