Patriots draft picks

15th overall (No. 15 pick in first round): Mac Jones, quarterback

A year after losing Tom Brady, the Patriots finally have a long-term plan at quarterback. Read more here.

38th overall (No. 6 pick in the second round): Christian Barmore, defensive tackle

The Tuscaloosa-to-New England pipeline continues. The Patriots traded up to take the Crimson Tide standout. They dealt their Nos. 46, 122, and 136 picks to move in position to take Barmore.

▪ 96th overall (No. 33 pick in third round): Ronnie Perkins, defensive end

Perkins missed half of Oklahoma’s 2020 season due to a failed drug test before the 2019 Peach Bowl, but offers plenty of potential.
