Will 2023 be the year when Bill Belichick uses a RD1 pick for a wide receiver? Despite adding DeVante Parker to 2021's below-average group that included Nelson Agholor, Jakobi Meyer and Kendrick Bourne, the Pats stand to lose Agholor and Meyer to free agency. The Pats significantly reached for speedster Tyquan Thornton in RD2 of April's Draft. Maybe he'll prove us all wrong, but WR certainly figures be a high need in the 2023 Draft.

Another possibility with this pick is cornerback. The team added Marcus Jones and Jack Jones in the Draft, but Marcus is a pure nickel, while Jack was one of those project reaches. The entire secondary loses player galore in free agency: Jonathan Jones, Myles Bryant, JoeJuan Williams, Devin McCourty, Jabril Peppers and others. If corners Ricks or Ringo are available, Belichick will look their way. But at this juncture, the Patriots do not stack up well in the AFC arms race. Kayshon Boutte was a 5-star recruit and freshman All-America. Boutte was on his way to spectacular numbers in the 2021 season prior to succombing to injury after 6 games.

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.
