New England Patriots 2021 NFL Mock Draft Roundup 6.0

Throughout the year and leading up to the 2021 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 (3/5)

15. Micah Parsons, LB, Penn State

Before opting out of the 2020 college season, there was a moment where the 244-pound linebacker was listed as Penn State's top kick returner. Even if perhaps by mistake, that highlights the type of athlete Parsons is. The versatile, three-down linebacker was a first-team AP All-American in 2019 and uses his athleticism, length and instincts to impact the game against the run, in coverage and as a blitzer.

ESPN - McShay (3/4)

15. Micah Parsons, LB, Penn State

I'm watching for the Patriots to add a quarterback via free agency or trade this offseason -- maybe Jimmy Garoppolo -- and potentially take a close look at the Day 2 options at the position. But with the top five off the board, another need matches up with some great value in the form of Parsons. The Penn State do-it-all linebacker opted out in 2020, but he can make plays in coverage, shoot gaps as a run-stopper, chase down ball carriers and even get home on the QB as a pass-rusher. I love his game.

Mike Reiss on his fit with the Patriots: Parsons would have the luxury of learning alongside Dont'a Hightower -- who returns from his own opt-out -- at the heart of the defense, giving him a cushion in which he wouldn't be relied upon too heavily initially before hopefully taking over in 2022. It's a similar situation to what New England did with Jerod Mayo in 2008, when Tedy Bruschi was passing him the torch.

CBS Sports - Trapasso (3/3)

22. Jaelan Phillips, EDGE, Miami (FL)

After sliding back to get a few day two selections, the Patriots address their anemic pass rush with Phillips, a former No. 1 recruit in the nation.

2020 NFL Power Rankings: New England Patriots

Throughout the 2020 NFL season, we will compile a consensus NFL Power Rankings that averages the rankings of all 32 NFL teams.

Here is where the New England Patriots rank in terms of average, best and worst in our consensus Week 17 NFL Power Rankings:

Below you will find a Week 17 roundup for the Patriots in our consensus 2020 NFL Power Rankings.

The Athletic -- Rank: 21

Cam Newton, QB: You could certainly make the case for guard Joe Thuney, but Newton is the more interesting choice. The Patriots' offense has been a mess, and Newton ranks 29th in QBR. He has not played well, but he's also been dealt one of the league's worst supporting casts, and Bill Belichick has raved about his intangibles. Will Newton land a starting job somewhere next season?

CBS Sports -- Rank: 18

The offense is awful right now. They should start Jarrett Stidham in the finale and get on with the planning for next season.
