Patriots 2023 Mock Drafts and Team Needs

The Patriots spent their first draft pick of the last draft in 2022 on a lineman and might be prepared to do the same in 2023. Several mock drafts project the team to take an offensive lineman at No. 14 overall. This comes after the Patriots took guard Cole Strange in the first round in 2022.

Options for the team include offensive tackle Paris Johnson Jr. from Ohio State or Darnell Wright from Tennessee. It’s clear that New England’s plan is to look for more pass protection for young quarterback Mac Jones. The QB was sacked 34 times in the 2022 season in 14 games.

The team also needs help at wide receiver, edge rusher, and linebacker. You could see the team going for defensive depth in the later rounds of the 2023 NFL Draft.
