2010 NFL Draft Picks: New England Patriots Selections – Results
Throughout the three days of the NFL draft, we will be updating this page for the New England Patriots every night to give you analysis for the picks they took. On Thursday NFL teams will only select players in the first round of the draft. On Friday, they will all select their second and third round picks.
Saturday each team will finish of its draft by selecting players through rounds four to seven. Enjoy the draft and come back here later to see our take on players selected for the New England Patriots.
Before The Draft: The Patriots need upgrades on the defense after losing so many veteran leaders in the past year. Look for this team to possibly go after a nice defensive end if one falls their way with their first pick.
Drafting in the later picks of the first round it will be interesting which players fall to this team and who they actually take.
27. New England Patriots: CB Devin McCourty – The Patriots needed an upgrade or five on defense as they have lost great players over the past year. Devin will help add another solid talent to a now dangerous secondary.
42. (Trade) Patriots Select: TE Rob Gronkowski – This is another solid weapon for Tom Brady as Gronkowski is a good player for this team. Gronkowski should also help out in blocking as well.
53. Patriots Select: DE / LB Jermaine Cunningham- The Patriots needed more help on defense and Cunningham is another solid addition in the three – four system. This player can play both up and down.
62. Patriots Select: LB Brandon Spikes – Another linebacker talent for the Patriots. This team is doing what they need to do in getting good players to rebuild the defense.
Round Three – Seven
Round 3. 90. Patriots: WR Taylor Price – Will be hard for Price to find the field in 2010.
Round 4, Pick 15 (113) Aaron Hernandez TE – With Gronkowski and now Hernandez, Brady has a very nice tandem of tight ends.
Round 5, Pick 19 (150) Zoltan Mesko P
Round 6, Pick 36 (205) Ted Larsen OL
Round 7, Pick 1 (208) Thomas Welch OL
Round 7, Pick 40 (247) Brandon Deaderick DE
Round 7, Pick 41 (248) Kade Weston DT
Round 7, Pick 43 (250) Zac Robinson QB
