2019 Patriots Mock Draft Tracker

Our staff has compiled 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, ESPN Football Analyst

PICK: Clelin Ferrell, DE, Clemson

LAST UPDATED: April 25, 2019

KIPER'S ANALYSIS:
"What are the chances that New England keeps this pick? Bill Belichick & Co.have six selections the first two days. Ferrell is the best edge rusher available, but there’s also a thought inside the league that he could play defensive tackle. We know Belichick likes versatile defenders"

EXPERT: Todd McShay, ESPN Senior Writer

PICK: Darnell Savage, S, Maryland

LAST UPDATED: April 25, 2019

MCSHAY'S ANALYSIS:
"Savage has been one of the draft’s biggest risers over the past couple of weeks. He reads receivers and quarterbacks very well and will step up and make plays on the ball. And I love his aggressiveness in run support."

EXPERT: Don Banks, NFL Columnist

PICK: Projected trade to the Broncos

LAST UPDATED: April 24, 2019

BANKS ANALYSIS:
"It’s not the most far-fetched of scenarios, given the Patriots’ history of trading out of the No. 32 slot and the Broncos’ willingness to deal back into the first round in pursuit of a quarterback (see Paxton Lynch, 2016). I was set to give New England Notre Dame defensive lineman Jerry Tillery in this final iteration of my mock draft, but there’s often activity at the bottom of the first round when it comes to highly-rated quarterbacks still on the board. It’s well know Denver likes Lock and is more than willing to let him sit behind Joe Flacco for year or two if need be. As for the Patriots, the rich get richer. They are tied with the Giants with a league-best 12 picks, and now get even more firepower to use as Bill sees fit."

EXPERT: Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com Analyst

PICK: Dexter Lawrence, DT, Clemson

LAST UPDATED: April 20, 2019

RANG'S ANALYSIS:
"Lawrence is just too talented to slip out of the top 32 and no one would fill a bigger hole in the middle for the Patriots."

PREVIOUS PICKS:
February 3 - T.J. Hockenson, TE, Iowa
December 31, 2018 - Jerry Tillery, DT, Notre Dame

EXPERT: Charley Casserly, NFL Media Analyst

PICK: Drew Lock, QB, Missouri

LAST UPDATED: April 9, 2019

CASSERLY'S ANALYSIS:
"Tom Brady can play until he is 45 and then Lock will take over!"

PREVIOUS PICKS:
February 19 - Noah Fant, TE, Iowa

EXPERT: Pete Prisco, CBS Sports Senior NFL Columnist

PICK: Parris Campbell, WR, Ohio State

LAST UPDATE: April 8, 2019

PRISCO'S ANALYSIS:
"This team needs speed in the worst way. Campbell can flat out fly."

EXPERT: Chad Reuter, NFL Draft Analyst

PICK: Projects a trade with the 49ers

LAST UPDATED: April 19, 2019

REUTER'S ANALYSIS:
"The Niners desperately need a talent like Brown at receiver if Jimmy G. is to have a successful return from injury in 2019. There's going to be a run on receivers and safeties early in Round 2, so it's a safe bet that teams are already starting to call the Pats to find the price for an upward move."

EXPERT: Daniel Jeremiah, NFL Media Analysis

PICK: Noah Fant, TE, Iowa

LAST UPDATED: April 24, 2019

JEREMIAH'S ANALYSIS:
"I'll be surprised if Fant lasts this long, but I could see the Patriots targeting him in a trade-up if he were to slip in the draft."

PREVIOUS PICKS:
April 16 - Dexter Lawrence, DT, Clemson
March 5 - Clelin Ferrell, DE, Clemson
January 23 - Kyler Murray, QB, Oklahoma

EXPERT: Chris Trapasso, CBS Sports NFL Writer

PICK: Jerry Tillery, DL, Notre Dame

LAST UPDATED: April 23, 2019

TRAPASSO'S ANALYSIS:
"After losing Trey Flowers on the free-agent market, the Patriots could be interested in adding a position versatile defensive lineman with active hands. They'd get that here with Tillery."

EXPERT: Bucky Brooks, NFL Media Analyst

PICK: Daniel Jones, QB, Duke

LAST UPDATED: April 25, 2019

BROOKS'S ANALYSIS:
"The Patriots could take a position player with potential to contribute immediately ... or they could make a long-term investment in the most important position on the field."

EXPERT: Charles Davis, NFL Media Analyst

PICK: Dalton Risner, T, Kansas St.

LAST UPDATED: April 23, 2019

DAVIS'S ANALYSIS:
"The Patriots could easily trade this pick to a QB-needy team that wants to jump back into Round 1, but if New England stays put here, Risner could be the franchise's next Logan Mankins. Versatile, and accomplished, he can play tackle, guard or center."

EXPERT: Lance Zierlein, NFL Media Draft Analyst

PICK: Drew Lock, QB, Missouri

LAST UPDATED: April 25, 2019

ZEIRLIEN'S ANALYSIS:
"New England could try to trade this pick, but with so much draft capital (league-high 12 total picks), the Patriots have the luxury of spending this selection on the heir apparent to Tom Brady."

EXPERT: Will Brinson, CBS Sports Senior Writer

PICK: Projects a trade with Giants

LAST UPDATED: April 24, 2019

BRINSON'S ANALYSIS:
"This doesn't feel like a combo of teams that would work together, but the Patriots love to trade back and Gettleman can win the day if he comes out of the first round with two defensive linemen AND a quarterback of the future."

EXPERT: Ric Serritella, NFLDraftScout.com Analyst

PICK: Jeffery Simmons, DT, Mississippi State

LAST UPDATED: April 2, 2019

SERRITELLA'S ANALYSIS:
"A projected top ten talent, Simmons could easily slide due to medical and character concerns; he would likely sit out his rookie campaign."

PREVIOUS PICKS:
February 18 - Trayvon Mullen, CB, Clemson
