Feb 22, 2014; Indianapolis, IN, USA; Minnesota Golden Gophers defensive tackle Ra

There is just over one month remaining until the 2014 NFL Draft is upon us, and the New England Patriots will have a full arsenal of picks to work with this year. The prospects in this years draft fortunately line up well for New England, as there are many immediate impact defensive lineman, both interior and exterior players, and a gluttony of great tight end prospects who can help contribute right away. With that being said, here’s my seven round NFL Mock Draft predictions for the New England Patriots.

Note: This time, I will keep all the Patriots picks, but in a future piece, I will try and mix things up with a couple trades here and there.

    I like this mock, I’m still a bit concerned about the o-line but knowing your position about that I understand the logic of those picks, all good players that are on my board generally (except the last two). For the second TE pick I have names like Jake Murphy (Utah) and Gator Huskins (HB/TE from Marshall, played with Dobson so they know him) and Larry Webster for the DE position (very raw prospect from Bloomsburg, he can play TE too). Wouldn’t you draft Kevin Norwood in the 4th round if still available? He is more polished than a lot of WRs and he played in a winning system.

      The Patriots have to draft at least one Rutgers player, we all know this, but if they decided to go with something else at that 4th round pick, then they could go in the later rounds with someone like Norwood. You could grab him in the 6th round probably. And I really like Hoskins as well, so I’ll probably look more into him in a week and a half or so, whenever I do the second version of this.

  • Alan Doherty

    Have they soured on Amaro?

    • Matt Wincherauk

      No, I just don’t think he was ever a legitimate option, more just that people thought he’d fit well, and kept hammering it home that this is the one person they need to take. With so many great tight ends in the 2nd and 3rd rounds, there just isn’t value in getting one in round one, when they have a more pressing need on the defensive line.

      • Mattia Rizzo

        Totally agree.

  • Amar S.

    I don’t agree with this mock. Pats just resigned Wilfork, why would they go DT first round? Maybe DE but not DT when they have Wilfork, Kelly, Siliga, Armstead, Chris Jones and Joe Vellano.

    • Matt Wincherauk

      Except the problem that Wilfork is a two down player, coming off a major injury, Kelly coming off a major injury, Armstead didn’t play and we have no idea what he’ll bring, Siliga is good, but a two down player, Jones and Vellano were ok, but terrible vs the run and were only average in pass rush. Need to look to the future, and have a rotation of players who can create interior pressure.
