NFL draft 2019: Patriots trade up, draft P Jake Bailey with the 163rd pick

New, comments

New England has picked another player.

NCAA Football: Stanford at Utah Russ Isabella-USA TODAY Sports

The fifth round of the 2019 NFL draft is underway, and for the New England Patriots it is a busy one: after already moving up to grab defensive lineman Byron Cowart earlier in the round, the world champions have moved up the board again — this time trading with the Philadelphia Eagles:

Patriots get: 5-163

Eagles get: 5-167 + 7-246

With the 163rd overall selection, the Patriots then drafted a punter:

#163: Jake Bailey

Position: Punter

School: Stanford

Size: 6013, 200 lbs

Quick-hit analysis: Adding Stanford punter Jake Bailey in the fifth round will make for an interesting camp competition this summer: New England re-signed Ryan Allen in free agency, and will now have him compete against the rookie. Bailey was voted to the second All-Pac-12 team in both 2017 and 2018.
