2014 Patriots Mock Draft Tracker

Posted May 7, 2014

Patriots.com has collected what the top 'experts' are predicting the Patriots will do in the first round come draft weekend. We will be updating this feature regularly to reflect changes in any of the mocks represented.



EXPERT: Mel Kiper, JR. | ESPN Insider

LAST UPDATED: May 8, 2014

NFL.COM ANALYSIS:
Calvin Pryor is perhaps the most explosive hitter in this year's crop of safeties, Pryor is a big, physical hammer in the run game, bringing the ability to intimidate and erase. Factor in his instincts and range and Pryor has the ability to start as a rookie.

EXPERT: Todd McShay | ESPN Insider

LAST UPDATED: May 8, 2014

NFL.COM ANALYSIS:
Stephon Tuitt is a hulking, long-armed, physically gifted defensive lineman with desirable size, strength, athleticism and versatility to appeal as a five-technique or as a defensive tackle or base end in a 4-3. Gained approximately 20 pounds as a junior and was not in peak condition, but has disruptive upside.

EXPERT: Mike Mayock | NFL.com

LAST UPDATED: May 7, 2014

NFL.COM ANALYSIS:
Jace Amaro put up ridiculous numbers in 2013, catching 106 passes for 1,352 yards and seven touchdowns. He spends a lot of time flexed in the slot but he will also put his hand on the ground as a traditional inline tight end. He isn't sudden but he's a very smooth route-runner. He had several high-point catches in the games I studied but he also had a couple drops after contact. I love his competitiveness after the catch. He routinely carries defenders for extra yardage. As a blocker, I was surprised with his strength and ability to seal the edge.

EXPERT: Pat Kirwan | CBS Sports

LAST UPDATED: May 2, 2014

NFL.COM ANALYSIS:
A raw, converted tight end with a basketball background, Ra'Shede Hageman is a big, athletic, finesse three-technique with intriguing dimensions and movement skills who fits best in an aggressive, one-gap scheme where he could fire into gaps. Will probably be restricted to nickel pass-rush duty initially until the game slows down for him, but has impact potential if he ever figures it out. Is still maturing, having endured a harrowing childhood to get to where he is today, and would be best served landing in a structured environment with veteran mentorship. Classic boom-or-bust prospect.

EXPERT: Andy Hart | Patriots Football Weekly

LAST UPDATED: May 7, 2014

NFL.COM ANALYSIS:
Despite standing to benefit from a more dominant senior season in South Bend, Louis Nix III, who already graduated, opted to forgo his final year of eligibility in order to provide for 13 siblings. He does not enter the NFL with momentum, having coped with knee tendinitis before season-ending surgery to repair a torn left meniscus, and too often his gregarious personality and media hype overshadowed his performance. However, if the massive interior defender taps into his power more consistently, Nix has ample mass, strength and athleticism to anchor a "30" front as a space-eating, block-occupying run stuffer.
