Now that the Patriots' season has come to an end, the focus shifts to the offseason and building the roster for next season.

Part of that is the NFL Draft and with their loss on Wild Card Weekend, the Patriots will have the No. 21 overall pick in the draft, one pick after the Steelers (No. 20) and one pick ahead of the Raiders (No. 22).

Here are the most recent players picked No. 21 overall:

2021: DE Kwity Paye (Colts)
2020: WR Jalen Reagor (Eagles)
2019: DB Darnell Savage (Packers)
2018: C Billy Price (Bengals)
2017: LB Jarrad Davis (Lions)

Other players selected No. 21 overall include Randy Moss, Lynn Swann and Chandler Jones.

In terms of the Patriots, their top needs figure to be a No. 1 wide receiver, linebacker and cornerback.
