New England Patriots Super Bowl Champs

A Rundown of All the New England Patriots 2017 NFL Draft Picks

Sports Illustrated has a complete rundown of all of the Patriots 2017 Draft Picks and some commentary as well.

Round 3, Pick 19 (No. 83 overall, from Titans)

Derek Rivers, DE, Youngstown State: The wait through 82 picks (including a trade down Friday) was a long one for the Patriots. Landing Rivers could make it worthwhile. He’s a hard-working edge rusher who will provide the defending champs some depth on passing downs. There were some folks who thought he could sneak into Round 1, so mid-Round 3 is a decent spot to find him. Grade: A-

Round 3, Pick 21 (No. 85, from Lions)

Antonio Garcia, OT, Troy: Guess the Patriots were bored after all. After waiting all the way until No. 83 to make their first pick of the draft, they turned around and dealt picks 96 and 124 to Detroit for this spot. Garcia is a developmental talent at tackle, and the Patriots have the pieces in place to buy him some time.? Grade: B

Round 4, Pick 25 (No. 131) Deatrich Wise Jr., DE, Arkansas

Round 6, Pick 28 (No. 211, from Cowboys) Conor McDermott, OT, UCLA
