This years Patriots Draft Board looks slim, without a 1st & 2nd pick. Bill Belichick could still add draft picks via trade, so that will be worth watching, but for now here is my MOCK draft for the Patriots.

3d round #72- S Josh Jones , North Carolina State, Bill Belichick is a foreword thinker, and he may be looking for S Patrick Chung's replacement.

3d round #96- DT Dalvin Tomlinson, Alabama, More youth on the defensive line, and Tomlinson is a great prospect to fit into the Patriots scheme.

4th round #118- CB Jack Tocho, North Carolina State, Adding another CB each year seems wise. Tocho was a team captain, is very intelligent and has nice size 6' 205 pounds.

5th round #163- OT Will Holden, Vanderbilt, A good looking prospect to groom into swing starter, behind Solder and Cannon for now.

5th round #183- LB Jordon Evans, Oklahoma, 6'3" 232 pounds, runs a 4.51 40 yd. with an outstanding 1.56 10 yd .

6th round #200- LB Eric Wilson, Cincinnati, 6'2" 225 pounds, and collected  over 100 tackles each of the past two years. A solid special teams player.

7th round #239- DE Jimmie Gilbert, Colorado 6'4" 230 pounds, with 34" arms but will need to transition to more of an OLB.
