FOXBORO -- With the No. 23 overall pick in the 2018 NFL draft, the Patriots have selected Georgia offensive lineman Isaiah Wynn. Wynn played all of 2017 at left tackle, but before that was a left guard/left tackle. It's unclear how the Patriots view him, but he was announced as a tackle. He was...

For the first time in a few years, the NFL draft has generated quite a bit of buzz in the New England market. A lot of that has to do with the Patriots having two first-round picks and two second-round picks for the first time under Bill Belichick, as well as the intrigue of potentially drafting a...

The NFL draft is here. For the first time in the Bill Belichick era, the Patriots have two picks in the first round and two picks in the second round, so really anything can happen.

How much should we look into the players the Patriots host for official top-30 pre-draft visits? It's hard to say. Sometimes there's legitimate interest, sometimes it's for medical purposes, and other times it is just a smokescreen. A look back at who the Patriots have hosted the last few years...

After a (sort of) suspenseful few months this offseason, Rob Gronkowski announced Tuesday night he will be back in 2018. With his status up in the air, many pegged tight end as a priority in the draft for the Patriots and while him returning makes it less of a need, the Patriots absolutely should...

Last year’s tight end class really set a new standard for the position. I doubt we’ll see another group like that for a long while. It’s probably natural to expect a bit of a down year in the wake of such a deeply packed class, but that is not at all the case. The 2018 class is a strong group...

One of the underrated parts of the NFL draft, is the undrafted free agents who sign almost immediately following the final pick of the draft. These have proven to be very important for the Patriots, as they have had an undrafted free agent make the 53-man roster in 14 straight seasons. Last year,...

Can you feel it? The NFL Draft is just a few short days away. This is the event that really separates the NFL from its competitors. No other major sport has anything in its offseason that even remotely compares to what NFL fans get on draft day. Sorry NBA fans. Your draft is fun, but you know I’m...

The Patriots promise to be one of the busier teams over the first couple of days of the NFL Draft, with four picks in the first two rounds. Here’s hoping they take care of business early, safeguarding New England from some cheesy gimmicks during the Draft’s third and final day. The Buccaneers...
