New England Patriots 2024 Seven Round Mock Draft

By Peter Andrisani (The Mock Draft Guy)


The 2023-24 Patriots endured their worst season since 1992 when they went 2-14. This season also marked the end of the greatest coaching tenure the NFL has quite possibly ever seen, with Bill Belichick stepping down as Head coach after 24 unbelievable seasons. This off-season is unprecedented territory for The Patriots, as they will enter with a new coach (Jerod Mayo) and a new GM for the first time since 1999. I tried to take the Patriots in a new direction in this 2024 Seven Round Mock Draft, let’s check it out. 


#3- Jayden Daniels (QB) LSU


This is the new look Patriots. What better way to signal a new era? Daniels might not be everyone's cup of tea, but he’s an uber-athletic, strong-armed passer, with quite possibly the best deep ball accuracy in the class. This new regime will have no ties to Bailey Zappe and Mac Jones, and even if they did… it’s tough to pass up a quarterback in this situation. 


#34- Xavier Legette (WR) South Carolina


Legette thrives as a big, (6’3” 227 pounds) strong run-after-catch threat. His long speed is outstanding, clocking in at 22.3 mph this season. His speed opens up underneath routes working back to the quarterback. He flashes above-average hip sinkage to pop out of routes like comeback, digs, and hitch routes after pressing the vertical plane initially. Legette would instantly become the number one target and the best receiver on the roster. 


#68- Delmar Glaze (OT) Maryland


Glaze is a super underrated offensive lineman so far throughout the draft process. The 6’5” 328-pound Terrapin has incredible length, athleticism, and versatility. I believe he could automatically slot in as the Pats long term left tackle. He’s a force in the run game and uses his outstanding length very well in pass protection. It's not the sexiest pick, but Glaze is a STUD.


#99- Jaden Hicks (S) Washington State


Jaden Hicks is a classic Patriots defensive back prospect. Over the past two seasons, Hicks has played all over the defensive scheme. Hicks has taken snaps at Free Safety, Strong Safety, Defensive line, Boundary corner, and in the slot. He can even play linebacker in sub packages due to his great size (6’3” 212 pounds). With Kyle Dugger, Marte Mapu, and Possibly Hicks, New England would have some versatile studs in the secondary. 


#130- Jonah Elliss (EDGE/LB) Utah


After serving as more of a rotational player last season, Jonah Elliss earned a starting job during training camp this summer and burst onto the scene as a pass-rusher. He was highly productive this season and had several moves he could win with, showing some nuance as a rusher and the ability to defeat tackles with both power and finesse. His size might be a slight concern, at just 6’2” and 242 pounds, but he projects well as a stand-up rush linebacker in odd fronts. 



#164- Bryson Nesbit (TE) North Carolina


At 6’6″ and 245 pounds, Nesbit is tailor-made to be a seam threat in the NFL. He’s not the best blocker in the class, but as a designated receiving threat, Nesbit can be a mismatch with his explosive athleticism, flexibility when attacking zones, and his natural ball-tracking ability in the intermediate and deep thirds.


#172- Dominick Puni (OL) Kansas


Puni is a strapping, powerfully built prospect with an impressive blend of girth, body control, and pad level that unlocks jolting, and sudden power on contact. He boasts the steer and sustain skills to compete and win a starting guard job within his first contract. He also can play tackle in a pinch. I love his versatility for an offensive line with a ton of question marks. 


#203- Jalen Green (EDGE) James Madison


In just nine games, Green managed to accumulate 15.5 sacks and 21 tackles for a loss. Against Marshall, he dominated with five sacks, winning with his natural leverage and unyielding motor. At 6’1″, 245 pounds, Green is a massive size outlier but lacks elite athleticism. Those factors, combined with the injury, limit his chances of being drafted, but he still has the tenacity and pass-rush arsenal to be a third-down specialist potentially.
