What’s next for the Patriots?

The Patriots will hold a mandatory minicamp for veterans from June 7 to 9.Jonathan Wiggs/Globe Staff/File 2015

The NFL Draft has come and gone.

The Patriots added players through the draft and signed rookie free agents who went undrafted, and all te rookies already went through their first minicamp in Foxborough.

But before training camp in late July/early August, the Patriots will hold eight more days of organized team activities and a three-day mandatory minicamp.

The remaining OTAs and the mandatory minicamp fall under phase three of the offseason program, which does not allow for live contact but does allow for 7-on-7, 9-on-9, and 11-on-11 drills.

Here is a look at the schedule for the Patriots this summer (dates for training camp have not yet been announced):


May 20-23: NFLPA Rookie Premiere. Teams must allow rookies who are invited, usually first- or second-rounders, to attend, even if they miss OTAs.

May 23-24 and 26: OTA workouts

June 1-2: OTA workouts

June 13-14 and 16: OTA workouts

June 7-9: Mandatory minicamp

June 19-25: Rookie symposium, Aurora, Ohio.

July 15: Deadline to sign a franchise-tagged player to a multiyear contract or extension. If the deadline passes and that hasn’t occurred, the player signs a one-year deal that can’t be extended until after the regular season is over.

Late July/early August: The Patriots have not announced dates for training camp yet, though it is usually held in this window.
