Patriots' seven-round mock draft 5.0

Share

We've officially reached the final countdown to the NFL Draft, as less than a week remains before it gets underway in Nashville.

The Patriots are always one of the most active teams on draft weekend thanks to Bill Belichick's propensity for trading picks, but when you consider that New England's 12 picks this year are tied for the most in the league, there could be a lot of action for the Pats during draft weekend.

Tight end, wide receiver, and defensive line seem to be the team's top needs, but it's nearly impossible to predict what Belichick will go for. Sometimes he'll zig when all the experts think he'll zag.

NBC Sports Boston's Phil Perry has done a lot of research on the prospects in this year's draft, and he sees both trades and these potential Patriots in the team's immediate future.

Here's Version 5.0 of Phil's Patriots-specific seven-round mock draft.>>>>
