Patriots.com Triple-Threat Mock Draft

The real NFL Draft is less than two weeks away, which means it's prime time for mock drafts to be finalized.

Read all three now and in a little more than a week we'll all find out which mock least deserves to be, well, mocked!

27.  New England Patriots (from NO) Kendall Reyes, DT, Connecticut Peter Konz, C, Wisconsin Janoris Jenkins, CB, North Alabama
COMMENTS:

PFW: Kendall Reyes is a versatile, productive, experienced defensive line prospect --  a position where the Patriots could use some top-end talent next to Vince Wilfork.

Brian Lowe:  There is a need for a long-term, blue-chip building block along the interior of the offensive line, and Peter Konz is an ideal fit.

Matt LaPan: Jenkins has had a lot of off the field problems but is still an extremely talented player. He has elite ball skills and the speed to cover anyone. Bill Belichick has taken risks on players like Jenkins before and with the extreme need for defensive talent, Jenkins is a gamble that the Patriots should be more than willing to take.

28. Green Bay Packers Nick Perry, DE, USC Kendall Reyes, DT, Connecticut Andre Branch, DE, Clemson
29. Baltimore Ravens Andre Branch, DE, Clemson Kevin Zeitler, G, Wisconsin Peter Konz, C, Wisconsin
30. San Francisco 49ers Kevin Zeitler, G, Wisconsin Shea McClellin, OLB, Boise State Stephen Hill, WR, Georgia Tech
31.  New England Patriots Shea McClellin, OLB, Boise State Devon Still, DT, Penn State Chandler Jones, DE, Syracuse
COMMENTS:

PFW: Shea McClellin has the prototypical potential and versatility for the edge of Bill Belichick's defense -- a spot that's the team's biggest need and has been for a few years.

Brian Lowe:  Bill O'Brien's loss at Penn State is Bill Belichick's gain in New England. Vince Wilfork was the last great DL draft pick by the Pats.

Matt LaPan:Chandler Jones is the type of versatile, physical player that Bill Belichick loves. His size and athletic ability allows him to play 4-3 defensive end and 3-4 outside linebacker. Could fill the void that Mark Anderson left when he went to Buffalo.

32. New York Giants Coby Fleener, TE, Stanford Coby Fleener, TE, Stanford Coby Fleener, TE, Stanford
