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.

Duke Quarterback Daniel Jones.
Duke Quarterback Daniel Jones.

EXPERT: Mel Kiper, ESPN Football Analyst

PICK: Daniel Jones, QB, Duke

LAST UPDATED: January 17, 2019

KIPER'S ANALYSIS:
"Tom Brady is going to be 42 when the 2019 season begins. Forty-two! It’s unbelievable what he’s continuing to do on the field, but the Patriots have to start thinking about the future … right? Jones could be the heir apparent. He has learned from quarterback guru David Cutcliffe at Duke, and you see it in his footwork. He excels in the pocket. Jones is athletic too, and he has a big, 6-foot-4 frame. There’s no guarantee that Jones will be the third quarterback off the board, but this fit makes a lot of sense."

EXPERT: Todd McShay, ESPN Senior Writer

PICK: Gerald Willis III, DT, Miami

LAST UPDATED: February 7, 2019

MCSHAY'S ANALYSIS:
"Trey Flowers, Malcom Brown and Danny Shelton will go to free agency, so the champs will likely address defensive line this offseason. Willis has quick hands and lots of power at the point of contact. If the Patriots opt to go another way, they could look for an heir to Tom Brady or another tight end (Noah Fant?)."

EXPERT: Pete Prisco, CBS Sports Senior NFL Columnist

PICK: D.K. Metcalf, WR, Ole Miss

LAST UPDATE: February 12, 2019

PRISCO'S ANALYSIS:
"At some point they have to get help outside in their passing game. They tried with Josh Gordon, and it didn't work. Now they can use a draft pick to help Tom Brady. Defensive line is also a possibility here."

EXPERT: Daniel Jeremiah, NFL Media Analysis

PICK: Kyler Murray, QB, Oklahoma

LAST UPDATED: January 23, 2019

JEREMIAH'S ANALYSIS:
"Murray is the ultimate wild card in this draft. The Patriots need to find the heir apparent to Tom Brady and Murray could contribute while Brady is still playing."

EXPERT: Bucky Brooks, NFL Media Analyst

PICK: Kyler Murray, QB, Oklahoma

LAST UPDATED: January 25, 2019

BROOKS'S ANALYSIS:
"Tom Brady can't play forever. Murray would serve as an apprentice before taking over as a dynamic QB1 for the Patriots after Brady decides to step away from the game."

There are few one-on-one matchups where Alabama is ever going to be a disadvantage against Clemson. Clemson's defensive line might be good enough to capitalize on some small vulnerability even without suspended 340-pound run stuffer Dexter Lawrence. Tigers All-America defensive tackle Wilkins against Alabama left guard Lester Cotton is a place where the Tigers can win one-on-one. (AP Photo/Richard Shiro, File)

EXPERT: Lance Zierlein, NFL Media Draft Analyst

PICK: Christian Wilkins, DL, Clemson

LAST UPDATED: January 29, 2019

ZEIRLIEN'S ANALYSIS:
"If you take a look at Belichick's draft history, you'll see he values offensive and defensive linemen in the first round. Wilkins is a big, powerful interior presence."

EXPERT: Will Brinson, CBS Sports Senior Writer

PICK: Deebo Samuel, WR, South Carolina

LAST UPDATED: January 29, 2019

BRINSON'S ANALYSIS:
"Tom Brady is going to need some weapons and Bill Belichick might view Samuel as a guy who can impact the return game (Cordarrelle Patterson is a free agent) as well, while stepping in to help Josh McDaniels' offense."

Notre Dame Defensive Lineman Jerry Tillery (99).

EXPERT: Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com

PICK: Jerry Tillery, DT, Notre Dame

LAST UPDATED: December 31, 2018

RANG'S ANALYSIS:
"Bill Belichick is too smart to allow a draft loaded with star defensive linemen slip by without replenishing his team's depth up front. While lacking in consistency, Tillery flashes the ability to dominate and would be a potential steal at this point in the draft."
