New England Patriots 2021 NFL Mock Draft Roundup 4.0

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 - Kevin Hanson (1/15)

15. Mac Jones, QB, Alabama

In the previous iteration of this mock, I slotted one of Jones' top weapons (Jaylen Waddle) at Alabama to the Patriots, who need to add play-makers to an offense devoid of them. That said, Jones took over for Tua Tagovailoa, the fifth pick in 2020, and really hit the ground running in 2020 after getting a few starts following Tua's injury in 2019. Facing only SEC competition before Notre Dame and Ohio State in the College Football Playoff, Jones completed 77.4% of his pass attempts and thrown for 4,500 yards (11.2 Y/A), 41 touchdowns and four interceptions. Jones was even better in the CFP as he completed 81.3% of his pass attempts for 761 yards, nine touchdowns and no interceptions.

San Diego Union Tribune - Eddie Brown (1/13)

15. Mac Jones, QB, Alabama

Cam Newton isn't the long-term answer at quarterback and Bill Belichick clearly doesn't believe in Jarrett Stidham. Jones benefits from a great supporting cast in Tuscaloosa, but he's an accurate, decisive passer who had 4,500 yards (first in the nation), 41 touchdown passes (second in the nation) against only four interceptions and a QBR of 96.1 (first in the nation). He finished third in the Heisman Trophy race.

CBS Sports - Chris Trapasso (1/13)

15. Gregory Rousseau, EDGE, Miami (FL)

Bill Belichick goes with the raw but versatile and high-upside Rousseau to refortify the defensive line in New England.

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.
