New England Patriots NFL Draft Picks 2023

It was a disappointing season for head coach Bill Belichick and the Patriots after going 8-9 and missing the playoffs. The 2023 NFL Draft will be a huge part of the offseason as the team tries to return to the top of the AFC.

Here’s a look at the New England Patriots’ draft picks for 2023.

New England Patriots Draft Picks in the 2023 NFL Draft

The Patriots have 11 picks in the 2023 NFL Draft and will have plenty of options to improve the roster heading into training camp. They have one first-round pick at No. 14 overall and three fourth-round picks.

Here’s a complete list of the Patriots’ draft picks for 2023.

– 1st Round: 14th overall

– 2nd Round: 46th overall

– 3rd Round: 76th overall (from Panthers)

– 4th Round: 107th overall (from L.A. Rams)

– 4th Round: 117th overall

– 4th Round: 135th overall (compensation pick)

– 6th Round: 184th overall (from Raiders)

– 6th Round: 187th overall (from Panthers)

– 6th Round: 192nd overall

– 6th Round: 210th overall (compensation pick)

– 7th Round: 245th overall (from Bills through Falcons)

The Patriots hold four picks in Round 6. One of the picks is because the Patriots traded quarterback Jarrett Stidham to the Las Vegas Raiders. Also, the Patriots will pick three times in the fourth round, and this includes a compensation pick. The Patriots earned two compensation picks for losing cornerback J.C. Jackson and center Ted Karras in free agency.

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.

When is the 2023 NFL Draft?

In April of 2023, the NFL Draft will take place in Kansas City, Missouri, spanning over three days. The draft will commence on April 27th with the First Round selections, airing live on both NFL Network and ESPN at 8 p.m. ET. On April 28th, the second and third rounds of the draft will take place, beginning at 7 p.m. ET.
