EXPERT: Don Banks, NFL Columnist

PICK: Dexter Lawrence, DT, Clemson

LAST UPDATED: April 17, 2019

BANKS ANALYSIS:
"A trade down is always a possibility and the need for play-makers at either receiver or tight end is considerably greater. But Lawrence carries a solid first-round grade, comes from a proven, championship program and the Patriots always value a big body who can clamp down on the running game and affect things in the backfield."

LAST UPDATED: April 9, 2019

EXPERT: Chad Reuter, NFL Draft Analyst

PICK: Hakeem Butler, WR, Iowa State

LAST UPDATED: March 28, 2019

REUTER'S ANALYSIS:
"The Patriots could select Jones as their future starter here or another team could trade up from the second round for his services, given that the fifth-year option is attached to first-rounders."

EXPERT: Daniel Jeremiah, NFL Media Analysis

PICK: Dexter Lawrence, DT, Clemson

LAST UPDATED: April 16, 2019

JEREMIAH'S ANALYSIS:
"While the rest of the league moves away from massive DTs like Lawrence, the Patriots see the value in a dominant run defender who can push the pocket on passing downs."

March 5 - Clelin Ferrell, DE, Clemson
January 23 - Kyler Murray, QB, Oklahoma

EXPERT: Chris Trapasso, CBS Sports NFL Writer

PICK: Deebo Samuel, WR, South Carolina

LAST UPDATED: April 11, 2019

TRAPASSO'S ANALYSIS:
"Samuel is a crafty route runner who excels after the catch in the short-to-intermediate portions of the field. Ideal skill set to flourish in New England."

February 27 - Rock Ya-Sin, CB, Temple

EXPERT: Ryan Wilson, CBS Sports NFL Writer

PICK: A.J. Brown, WR, Ole Miss

LAST UPDATED: April 17, 2019

WILSON'S ANALYSIS:
"They typically go defense or trade back -- I get that, but I also can see them adding a smaller speedster who can be utilized in multiple ways in this offense to be a gamebreaker."

EXPERT: Charles Davis, NFL Media Analyst

PICK: Dalton Risner, T, Kansas St.

LAST UPDATED: April 2, 2019

DAVIS'S ANALYSIS:
"Yes, Gronk has left the building, and the TE position looks particularly bereft for the Patriots, but when has New England done exactly as predicted? The O-line gets great help with Risner, who can plug in and play well from Day 1. He played center, guard and tackle at K-State, and I love his overall backstory/makeup/consistently excellent play."

March 15 - Irv Smith Jr, TE, Alabama

EXPERT: Lance Zierlein, NFL Media Draft Analyst

PICK: Jeffery Simmons, DL, Mississippi State

LAST UPDATED: March 21, 2019

ZEIRLIEN'S ANALYSIS:
"The rich get richer. If there are any more pressing needs, they could be cast aside so that Bill Belichick can get his hands on one of the most talented players in the draft -- Simmons is likely to slide due to an ACL tear he suffered last month, along with his his 2016 arrest."

PREVIOUS PICKS:
January 29 - Christian Wilkins, DL, Clemson

EXPERT: Will Brinson, CBS Sports Senior Writer

PICK: Parris Campbell, WR, Ohio State

LAST UPDATED: April 15, 2019

BRINSON'S ANALYSIS:
"They typically go defense or trade back -- I get that, but I also can see them adding a smaller speedster who can be utilized in multiple ways in this offense to be a gamebreaker."

EXPERT: Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com Analyst

PICK: T.J. Hockenson, TE, Iowa

LAST UPDATED: February 3, 2019

RANG'S ANALYSIS:
"Regardless of whether future Hall of Famer Rob Gronkowski plays next season or not, the Patriots need to draft for the future at tight end. Hockenson is not as big as Gronkowksi but he stands out in every other way, impressing as a seam threat, security blanket and soul-crushing blocker. Another weapon for Tom Brady, just what the now six-time Super Bowl champion needs... to go for a seventh."

PREVIOUS PICKS:
December 31, 2018 - Jerry Tillery, DT, Notre Dame

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
