The 2024 NFL Draft has officially come to a close, with the Patriots making eight total selections throughout the weekend. Their focus was on weaponizing the offense, especially around new quarterback Drake Maye, and the new regime of Jerod Mayo and Eliot Wolf seemed to hit it out of the park.

But their day of adding more players to their roster is far from over.

Now comes the fun part of signing undrafted prospects, an aspect of the annual draft process that the Patriots have historically had a lot of success with. Bill Belichick found some hidden gems during his tenure in Foxboro, and the hope is that tradition will continue this year.

Considering the list of talented players who will likely go undrafted, the Patriots should consider several interesting prospects. This might be where they try to add even more depth to the offense, really wanting to test guys out this summer.

Or they could add more defensive pieces in hopes of finding a diamond in the rough who could help boost an already dominant unit.

Who did the Patriots select in the 2024 NFL Draft?

Here's a look at all eight picks that make up the Patriots 2024 draft class:

Round 1, Pick No. 3 - Drake Maye, QB, North Carolina
Round 2, Pick No. 37 - Ja’Lynn Polk, WR, Washington
Round 3, Pick No. 68 - Caedan Wallace, OT, Penn State
Round 4, Pick No. 103 - Layden Robinson, OT, Texas
Round 4, Pick No. 110 - Javon Baker, WR, UCF
Round 6, Pick No. 180 - Marcellas Dial, CB, South Carolina
Round 6, Pick No. 193 - Joe Milton III, QB, Tennessee
Round 7, Pick No. 231 - Jaheim Bell, TE, Florida State

At the end of Day 3, New England has 79 players on their roster, leaving 11 spots open to add UDFAs.

List of New England Patriots undrafted free agent signings

  • Charles Turner, OL, LSU

The Patriots' first UDFA signing is another offensive lineman, this time from LSU. Charles Turner will add more depth to the unit overall but could potentially compete for a spot with last year's fourth-round draft pick Jake Andrews.

  • Dell Pettus, S, Troy

The additions to the defense pick up early after the 2024 NFL Draft concluded, as the Patriots sign Troy safety Dell Pettus. He is set to join a roster led by Kyle Dugger and Jabrill Peppers, great veterans to learn from throughout his rookie season.

  • Mikey Victor, CB, Alabama State

The 6'3" cornerback is an aggressive player who's speed and agility help him make big-time tackles, which is boosted by his impressive tracking skills. He's a solid addition to a depleted cornerback roster after Myles Bryant, J.C. Jackson and Jalen Mills left in free agency.

  • John Morgan III, EDGE, Arkansas

The offense was clearly the focus of this year's draft, which is hard to argue against. But one of the weaker spots of the defense, the pass rush, definitely could've used an addition or two to help Matthew Judon against opposing quarterbacks.

Instead, the Patriots waited to sign UDFA John Morgan, who totaled 16 sacks in 64 games during his career spent mostly at Pittsburgh before transferring to Arkansas in 2023.

  • Zuri Henry, T, UTEP

UTEP's Zuri Henry will fill many roles over the summer with his versatility at left and right tackle, adding even more depth to the offensive line. During his college career, he played 1,854 snaps at LT and 886 at RT, the swing tackle the team has needed as they hope to improve protection and blocking ahead of the 2024 season.

  • DeShaun Fenwick, RB, Oregon State

A handful of running backs are under contract for the 2024 season, including Antonio Gibson, who was signed in free agency. But with underwhelming depth, the Patriots decided to sign DeShaun Fenwick out of Oregon State, who recorded 386 carries for 2,049 yards and 18 touchdowns during his college career.

  • Jacob Warren, TE, Tennessee

Similar to that lack of impressive depth at running back, the same can be said about tight ends. Hunter Henry will lead the way again this fall, with Austin Hooper and the rest of the TE roster following behind.

Assuming Jaheim Bell can make an impression and earn a spot on the 2024 roster, the tight end room will be full, but a guy like Jacob Warren could be a solid addition. Bell is more of the pass-catching type at the position, while Warren is a blocker. Both are needed within an offense, creating a path for him to make the team this year.

  • Kaleb Ford Dement, CB, Texas State

With the cornerback room thinning out in free agency, it's good to see the Patriots adding more prospects through the draft. They signed Kaleb Ford Dement from Texas State, an athletic and experienced player who can fight for a chance to make the team this summer.

  • Jontrey Hunter, LB, Georgia State
  • Jett Bush, LB, Texas

Patriots invite players to rookie mini camp

  • Tairiq Stewart, OT, NC A&T
  • Vincent Blanchard, K, Laval
  • John Davis, CB, North Texas
  • Jay Person, EDGE, Chattanooga
  • Terrell Jennings, RB, Florida A&M
  • Beau Corrales, WR, Texas State
  • Noah Rauschenberg, K, North Texas
  • Trajon Bandy, CB, Miami
  • John Pupil, DB, Boston College
  • Teldrick Ross, DB, Middle Tennessee State
  • Devin Adams, DT/P, Peru State
