NFL Draft grades roundup: Experts give Patriots' 2019 class high marks


The New England Patriots made 10 picks in the 2019 NFL Draft, and they addressed several needs, including wide receiver, offensive line, defensive line, cornerback and even quarterback.

New England made a bunch of trades on the second and third days of the draft, moving up and down in the order, as well as securing future selections.

The Patriots used their first-round pick, No. 32 overall, on Arizona State wide receiver N'Keal Harry. He's the first wide receiver the Patriots have drafted in the first round during Bill Belichick's tenure as the team's head coach.

The first wave of analysis on the Patriots' draft class has been pretty favorable for New England. Here's a roundup of notable expert draft grades for the Patriots.
