Selection Comment - Pick #31

Return to Mock Draft

The 36-13 final score against the Titans was not surprising, given that Tennessee was lacking all their offensive playmakers. However troubling to the Pats' goals of marching far into the playoffs was that the defense allowed 270 yards rushing to no-name Dontrell Hilliard and D'Onta Foreman (still in the NFL?). We'll see how good the Pats really are MNF Week 13 at Buffalo.

Belichick will look hard at the secondary with the RD1 pick at the 2022 draft. JC Jackson, Devin McCourty and Adrian Phillips all hit free agency after the season, though some may be brought back with team-friendly contracts. A darkhorse might be Iowa center Tyler Linderbaum, the draft's best IOL. The Pats' have David Andrew lock in for several years at center, but Linderbaum can play guard, and BB loves position versatility particularly with Alex Karras hitting FA.
