FOXBORO — Although the Patriots made only one selection on Friday, it was a busy day in terms of action.

New England made four trades, including three during the draft, which shook up not only its picks on Friday, but Saturday as well.

Here are the current Patriots selections going into the day on Saturday.

Round 4 - No. 105 overall
Round 5 - No. 143 overall 
Round 6 - No. 198 overall 
Round 6 - No. 210 overall 
Round 7 - No. 219 overall

Analysis: These picks give the team a good deal of flexibility. If there is a player it really likes, having picks in every round the rest of the way, including two in the sixth, it can trade up to make sure it gets him. Keep an eye on pick No. 143 in the fifth round, as historically the Patriots haven’t picked much in the fifth-round (just once since 2012). If Friday was any indication, expect more trades on Saturday.
