Patriots mock draft roundup, version 1.0: Super early projections for No. 15


The NFL playoffs are in full swing, but with more than half the league out of the picture and looking ahead to 2021, NFL Draft experts have already begun to put together their mock drafts.

The Patriots will be selecting No. 15 overall, their highest spot in the first round since selecting Jerod Mayo at No. 10 overall in 2008.

New England has a number of needs, so it could really target a number of positions, but quarterback will be the one many will be looking towards.

Here’s who the experts currently project the Patriots to select at No. 15 overall.

ESPN's Todd McShay: QB Justin Fields, Ohio State
The Athletic's Dane Brugler: WR Jaylen Waddle, Alabama
CBS Sports' Ryan Wilson: QB Trey Lance, North Dakota State
CBS Sports' Chris Trapasso: WR Amon-Ra St. Brown, USC
CBS Sports' Josh Edwards: WR Jaylen Waddle, Alabama
FOX Sports' Jason McIntyre: TE Kyle Pitts, Florida
Pro Football Focus' Anthony Treash: WR Rashod Bateman, Minnesota
The Draft Network's Brentley Weissman: TE Kyle Pitts, Florida
