2025 NFL Mock Draft

Selection Comment - Pick #2

Return to Mock Draft

New England
Will Campbell



The Patriots took a massive step forward in rebuilding their offense during the 2024 NFL Draft. Drake Maye will be the talk of training camp, but rookie receivers Ja'Lynn Polk and Javon Baker have a real chance to make a huge impact right out of the gate. The Pats also sandwiched two offensive line picks in between the two receivers they selected: tackle Caedan Wallace and guard Layden Robinson. While both players will battle it out for a chance to provide an impact from day one, it would be silly to expect elite production from both a third round tackle and a fourth round guard, at least right away.

The Caedan Wallace pick was a bit of an eyebrow-raiser. While Wallace fit a position of need, he was taken quite a bit higher than consensus, and may not be the type of player who is ready to push for a starting job early in his career.

All this is to say that the selections of Wallace and Robinson certainly do not preclude the Patriots from investing significant future draft capital in the offensive line, particularly at tackle, where it's tough to see more than a marginal improvement in 2024.

Enter: LSU's Will Campbell. Campbell will need to hone his skills in his final year at LSU, particularly as a pass-blocker, but he has the potential to be a standout player when 2025 Draft season comes around. And believe it or not, the Patriots offense still needs as many standout players as it can get.
