  • Patriots Finish Off Draft Class With Big Defensive Back

    The New England Patriots’ 2023 draft class is complete. They grabbed one more defensive back with their final selection in the seventh round, Isaiah Bolden out of Jackson State.

    Bolden brings the Patriots’ 2023 draft to 12 total selections, marking the team’s deepest class since 2010, when they also took 12 players. They addressed some of their biggest needs and all three phases of the game.

  • Patriots Draft Defensive Back At No. 214

    The Patriots continued to sit back and make their picks in the sixth round. At No. 214, they’ve selected Michigan State defensive back Ameer Speed. He has great size at 6-foot-3 and 215 pounds, and has experience playing both defense and special teams for the Spartans. He’ll have a chance to contribute as a special teamer right away, with the possibility of developing on defense.

  • Patriots Draft Another Receiver At Pick 210

    A double-dip at receiver for the Patriots. They’ve selected Liberty WR Demario Douglas with the 210th pick in the sixth round.

  • Patriots Draft Punter With 192nd Pick

    The Patriots just became the first team since 2000 to draft a kicker and punter in the same year. They went with Michigan State punter Bryce Baringer at pick No. 192. Paired with fourth-round kicker Chad Ryland, the Pats are hoping they’ve shored up their key specialist roles for the long-term in the same draft.

  • Patriots Draft A Wide Receiver With Sixth-Round Pick

    Finally, the Patriots address their wide receiver depth chart. Former LSU wideout Kayshon Boutte was better in his first two seasons at LSU than his final year and also had a subpar Combine performance, which hurt his 2023 draft stock. But there’s upside here, based on his performance in 2021-22. We’ll see if Boutte makes any kind of impact as a rookie, but he should have a chance to stick around.

    The Patriots have used their selection acquired from the Raiders on their second offensive guard of the day. They’re taking UCLA guard Atonio Mafi with the 144th pick, which they got along with pick 214 from the Raiders for pick 135.

  • Patriots Trade 135th Pick To Raiders

    Bill Belichick and Josh McDaniels have done a little business. The Raiders traded up to the 135th pick with the Patriots, as Belichick moves down and acquires picks 144 and 214, according to Field Yates.

    With the move, the Patriots slide out of the fourth round and into the fifth.

  • Patriots Draft OG Sidy Sow With 117th Pick

    The Patriots may have just identified their kicker of the future. After trading up to pick 112 from 120, the Patriots are selecting kicker Chad Ryland out of Maryland. Read more about the Patriots’ newest kicker.

  • TRADE! Patriots Move Up

    The New England Patriots have traded up the draft board with … the Jets?! They’ve jumped to pick 112 in a swap for picks 120 and 184, according to Ian Rapoport.

  • Patriots Take C Jake Andrews With 107th Pick

    The Patriots finally addressed their offensive line with the 107th pick in the fourth round, but it’s not at tackle or even guard, but at center. They’re taking Troy C Jake Andrews.

    David Andrews remains the Patriots’ starting center and signed through 2024, but now he may have a backup that shares a surname. The Pats have gone with James Ferentz at backup center in recent seasons, so the new Andrews should provide competition and depth behind the elder Andrews.
