Kudos to the Pats on achieving the playoffs and by all accounts finding their QB of the future in the 2021 Draft. Unfortunately for Mac Jones, he'll seemingly never have the ball-catching talent afforded to other QBs, as GM/HC Bill Belichick does not particularly seem to value the position. That, and he's been woefully inept at drafting them - N'Keal Harry being the latest example.

The Patriots offense otherwise looks solid going into 2022, though the OL will get some draft looks with Alex Karras and Trent Brown both free agents. The defense will get the attention of the Pats' RD1 pick to be sure. Some of our readers will be annoyed that we did not slot LB Nakobe Dean here - admittedly a Belichick-style pick. Instead the secondary gets the attention here with Safety Daxton Hill.

Not only is the secondary aging, but several key component hit free agency this year - JC Jackson and Devin McCourty, followed by three corners (Jones, Bryant, Williams) next year. The team did extend Adrian Phillips recently, but that's a finger in the dike with the likes of Allen, Mahomes and Burrow to contend with for the next 10 years. Daxton Hill offers extreme athleticism, combined with position versatility (Safety, CB) and 4.3 speed. He's a reach in the low 20's, but Hill will be gone by the time the Pats' RD2 pick comes along.

PATRIOTS HISTORICAL DRAFT PICKS

Reach/Value (R/V) Explained
The difference between where a player is selected in the NFL draft versus where the player was listed on the final Drafttek Big Board for the season in question.
Example: A player who was listed at #50 on the Big Board and was selected at #35 will be a "Reach" of -15. Alternately, a player listed at #35 on the Big Board who was selected at #50 is a +15 "Value".

Simply put: a positive number is a Value pick, a negative number is a Reach.
