2017 NFL Draft: Patriots trade down with Titans, pick up a couple draft picks

The Patriots needed more draft picks.

The New England Patriots entered the 2017 NFL Draft tied for the fewest draft picks on the weekend with just six, so when the draft board presented itself flush with pass rushing talent, the Patriots saw an opportunity to trade down and acquire additional draft capital, while remaining in range to add an impact player.

The Patriots sent the 72nd and 200th overall picks to the Tennessee Titans for the 83rd and 124th picks. The Patriots won this draft with a slight advantage.

The Patriots next picks are now the 83rd, 96th, 124th, and 131st over the third and fourth rounds.
