New England Patriots 2022 NFL Mock Draft Roundup 2.0

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:

CBS Sports - Edwards (11/25)

26. Nakobe Dean, LB, Georgia

New England has leaned into its identity as a physical team that is just going to blow up zone blocking schemes. Dean is a missile that will eliminate the pullers from the equation.

NBC Sports Chicago - Morgan (11/24)

26. Treylon Burks, WR, Arkansas

Burks is a good sized target who moves with surprising agility for a man his size (6-3, 232 lbs). The fluidity of his hip movements improves separation from defenders when pivoting and cutting on combo pass routes. Burks uses his frame to shield defensive backs from the ball when they challenge him on contested passes. The Patriots' rookie quarterback, Mac Jones is having an outstanding season so far, imagine how much better he'll become with the addition of Burks.

New Year's resolution: Stop asking Bill Belichick about resolutions

After the team's Week 16 home loss to the Bills, Belichick was asked if he had any resolutions. That predictably didn't go too well. Then he was asked a follow-up on videoconference six days later and he said, "Those would all be personal anyway, so they probably wouldn't mean much to you anyway." -- Mike Reiss

NFL.com -- Rank: 8

The Patriots have been dropping unholy late-season 50-burgers on bad teams for years now, but there's something to be said for their ability to continue this party trick even with Tom Brady playing his home games 1,300 miles away from Foxborough. Mac Jones threw three touchdown passes in a 50-10 win over the Jaguars that clinched a playoff spot and kept New England in the running for a division title with one week to play. No matter how the AFC East shakes out, a grudge match between the Pats and Bills feels inevitable. We plan to watch this game.
