Patriots call Cooks ‘our first-round pick'


The Patriots didn't make a pick Thursday night, but as teams were introducing their new players on Friday, New England's social media team took an opportunity to show off theirs. 

The team posted a picture of Brandin Cooks on Instagram Friday evening with the caption "Our first round pick." The Pats traded their first-rounder (32nd overall) and a third-rounder (No. 103) to New Orleans last month for Cooks and the 118th pick.

With the pick acquired from the Patriots, the Saints drafted Wisconsin offensive tackle Ryan Ramczyk. 

The Pats are slated to make their actual first selection of the draft Friday at No. 72 overall.
