New England Patriots Draft - Grade It!

In the NFL, if you can't pressure the opposing QB, you are going to lose. 

The Patriots were smart to get a premiere interior pass rusher, DT Dominique Easley. They then made the surprise selection of QB Jimmy Garoppolo in the second round, which raises questions about Ryan Mallett's future.  

RB James White will look to fill the void left by the departure of LeGarrette Blount, while C Bryan Stork and OT Cameron Fleming add depth to the offensive line.


Grade the Patriots draft below and then give us your comments.


1. Dominique Easley - (DT, Florida)

2. Jimmy Garoppolo - (QB, Eastern Illinois)

3. Bryan Stork - (C, Florida State)

4. James White - (RB, Wisconsin)

5. Cameron Fleming - (OT, Stanford)

6. Jon Halapio - (G, Florida)

7. Zach Moore - (DE, Concordia)

8. Jemea Thomas - (CB, Georgia Tech)

9. Jeremy Gallon - (WR, Michigan)

    Shout out to derkwin, the patriots drafted him because brady is getting old, and our current backup isn't doing so good.
