New England Patriots 2022 NFL Mock Draft Roundup 1.0

Throughout the year and leading up to the 2022 NFL Draft, we will update our New England Patriots Mock Draft Roundup showing picks for the New England Patriots from several prominent sites and draft analysts.

The following are picks in recent mock drafts for the Patriots:

EDSFootball - Hanson (5/10)

21. Garrett Wilson, WR, Ohio State

It wouldn't surprise me if Wilson is off the board before teammate Chris Olave and/or if he's the first receiver drafted in 2022. That said, the Patriots were big spenders in free agency, but they will go into the 2021 season with Jakobi Meyers, Nelson Agholor and Kendrick Bourne atop the depth chart at wide receiver. Adding better weapons for Mac Jones starts here with Wilson.

Touchdown Wire - Schofield (5/7)

21. Ventrell Miller, LB, Florida

There are a few different directions the New England Patriots could look to travel early in the 2022 NFL draft. Wide receiver might be a position that Bill Belichick addresses, as is cornerback depending on the status of both Stephon Gilmore and J.C. Jackson. Then there is linebacker. While New England is getting veteran Dont'a Hightower back after opting-out in 2020 -- and there will be no Hightower slander from this author, as the veteran should have at least one Super Bowl MVP trophy on his mantle -- Belichick could look to draft his replacement. Ventrell Miller has been a mainstay in the middle of the Florida Gators defense the past two seasons, and could be the kind of linebacker that Belichick covets.

PFF - Renner (5/7)

21. Noah Daniels, CB, TCU

Through four games in 2020, Daniels was shutting down his side of the field in his first year as a starter before getting injured. He allowed only six catches from 18 targets for 100 yards with five pass breakups. He's an explosive dude who can hang clean 400 pounds despite weighing only 193 pounds.

Here is where the New England Patriots rank in terms of average, best and worst:

Below you will find a post-draft roundup for the Patriots in our consensus 2021 NFL Power Rankings.

ESPN -- Rank: 19

Player who benefited most from draft: OT Isaiah Wynn

The Patriots didn't draft an offensive lineman until the sixth round (William Sherman), which simplified their decision to pick up Wynn's fifth-year option for 2022 and guarantee him $10.4 million. Wynn has played 18 of a possible 48 regular-season games, as injuries have created obstacles for him in becoming the player the Patriots hoped they were getting after taking him No. 23 overall out of Georgia in 2018. When healthy, he has been mostly solid at left tackle. -- Mike Reiss

NFL.com -- Rank: 18

Sure, the Patriots would have "won" the draft had Justin Fields ended up in Foxborough, but that ultimately doesn't matter. Fields is in Chicago, and the Pats will move forward with Mac Jones, the Alabama star who was purportedly pegged as the third pick in the draft for weeks before the Niners pulled their rope-a-dope routine in Cleveland. Jones is known for his accuracy and decision-making, cherished traits in a Josh McDaniels offense. The question is, how long it will take Jones to crack the starting lineup? Jarrett Stidham becomes a franchise afterthought, but a camp battle between Jones and Cam Newton promises some of the best theater of the summer.
