The NFL has announced the full draft order and, with an additional four compensatory picks, it brings the Patriots to a grand total of 12 selections. After trading their second round pick to the Falcons for Mohamed Sanu, the team has a notable gap in picks between the 23rd overall and 87th overall slots that leaves them without a second-round pick. However, with seven picks in the final two rounds, the team should have some ammunition to trade up and down the board and maintain a consistent pace of selections throughout the three days.
The draft is scheduled to take place April 23rd-25th in Las Vegas.
