Throughout the year and leading up to the 2023 NFL Draft, we will update our New England Patriots Mock Draft Roundup showing picks for the New England Patriots from several prominent sites and draft analysts.
The following are picks in recent mock drafts for the Patriots:
CBS Sports - Wilson (9/7)
14. Clark Phillips III, CB, Utah
Jaxon Smith-Njigba's value to Ohio State was on clear display on Saturday night (even if Smith-Njigba's production wasn't) as the offense stumbled through a stretch of the game without their star receiver after a nasty hit on the sideline before an epic 95-yard touchdown drive in the fourth quarter put the game on ice for the Buckeyes.
Sporting News - Iyer (9/3)
14. Henry To'o To'o, LB, Alabama
SI - Hanson (8/31)
The Draft Network - Weissman (8/29)
Jaxon Smith-Njigba is an outstanding route-runner who flashes excellent separation quickness, understanding of leverage, and knows how to set up defenders. He may lack true vertical speed, but his ability to make defenders miss with the ball in his hands is outstanding and he is just a player who knows how to uncover and get open. He would provide Jones with a true weapon that he can rely on.
The issue is most of his production has come from the slot. Yet, with Olave and Wilson gone, Smith-Njigba should see more reps outside. Still, Justin Jefferson spent most of his collegiate career in the slot, and look how he turned out.
ESPN - Reid (8/25)
