New England Patriots 2023 NFL Mock Draft Roundup 1.0

Throughout the year and leading up to the 2023 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:

The Athletic - Dane Brugler (5/3)

15. B.J. Ojulari, EDGE, LSU

The younger brother of Azeez Ojulari (and the better prospect, according to some), Ojulari is a tough athlete to block off the edge. He led the Tigers in sacks last season and could be one of the best players in the SEC in 2022 if he takes the next step in his development.

Draft Wire - Luke Easterling (5/3)

15. B.J. Ojulari, EDGE, LSU

Matthew Judon is an impact player off the edge, but the Pats need a similar presence on the other side of the defensive front. Ojulari racked up seven sacks and 11.5 tackles for loss as a sophomore in 2021, and is primed for even more this year.

Fox Sports - Jason McIntyre (5/3)

16. Nolan Smith, EDGE, Georgia

The twitch and the bend are there, but Smith will have to add some weight to his 6-foot-3, 235-pound frame to jump into the top 10.

Below you will find a post-NFL Draft roundup for the Patriots in our consensus 2022 NFL Power Rankings.

ESPN -- Rank: 18

Player who benefited most from draft: LB Cameron McGrone

The Patriots didn't select a linebacker in what was viewed by many as a deep class, and the position was also considered a top team need. But Bill Belichick & Co. didn't seem to see it the same way. Director of player personnel Matt Groh said McGrone, a 2021 fifth-round pick who missed his rookie season recovering from a torn ACL sustained at Michigan, is like an "additional draft pick" this year. McGrone is a legitimate candidate to start as he vies for the role alongside Ja'Whaun Bentley, Mack Wilson and Raekwon McMillan, among others. -- Mike Reiss

NFL.com -- Rank: 15

The Patriots' first-round selection of Chattanooga guard Cole Strange was deemed a significant reach by the draft community, but let's not act surprised when Strange is anchoring the interior of the New England line in 2030. Yes, we still respect the football acumen of The Hooded One. That said, the Pats feel shorthanded in the AFC's arms race. Trade acquisition DeVante Parker was a nice weapon to add to an underwhelming wide receiver room, but we would've liked to see the Pats get aggressive and land one of the Big Six wideouts that came off the board in the first round in Vegas.
