The 2023 NFL draft begins Thursday evening. The New England Patriots will be hoping to better their more recent draft attempts to bolster a team that missed the playoffs in 2022 for the second time in three years.
The Patriots will be on the clock with the No. 14 pick on Thursday, April 27 and all eyes in the region will be on Bill Belichick and his draft team.
The team has a myriad of ways to approach this draft and unless he persists in reaching way above expectations for any premium picks (rounds one through 3) it will be hard for them to mess this one up. Yet, if past experience is any indicator, who knows?
It’s been stated here that a consensus draft using the 11 picks available at the moment will almost certainly be a solid one, absent any of the imprudent reaches that have permeated recent drafts.
This exercise, the last for this space this draft season, will try to suggest a strategy to fill numerous holes in the team. It’s a draft that will hopefully be of interest as it would bring a number of quite interesting players into the New England Patriots fold.
