Patriots Own 11 Picks In The 2016 NFL Draft Which Starts Tomorrow NIght
Well, the draft starts tomorrow night, but thanks to 'Deflategate,' the Patriots won't pick until the second round, unless they trade up.
Round 1 of the 2016 NFL Draft is tomorrow night beginning at 8PM and can be seen on ESPN and NFL Network. Rounds 2 and 3 are on Friday with a 7PM start time. Saturday is a long day, rounds 4-7 with a noon start. The Patriots have 11 picks. Here is the breakdown:
In the second round the Patriots own the 60th and 61st picks.
The Pats have the 91st and 96th selections in the 3rd round.
They traded away their 4th and 5th round picks, so they’re not up again until the 6th round, where they own 5 picks, 196th, 204th, 208th, 214th, and 221st.
On to the 7th round, Pats have the 240th and 250th overall picks.
The Patriots will be busy on Saturday for sure. I guess the only reason to tune in tomorrow night is to check out the top 10 picks. I'm really interested to see what positions the Pats will go after during this draft. Do they go after a QB in anticipation of Brady being suspended and Jimmy G. starting the first 4 games? They don't have a third stringer right now, so there would be no back up if Garappolo got hurt. So many questions, can we get the season started already!!
