NFL Draft tracker 2023: Patriots news, rumors, live updates, instant analysis, open thread

The second day of the NFL Draft is in the books.

Kansas City Chiefs

After a chaotic first round of the 2023 NFL Draft, the New England Patriots entered Day 2 as one of the biggest early winners around the league. Despite moving back three spots from No. 14 to 17, New England still walked away with cornerback Christian Gonzalez, who was widely regarded as a top-10 talent.

With the trade back, the Patriots also netted an additional fourth-round (No. 120) selection meaning they entered Day 2 with 11 total picks still in their arsenal. While it appeared moving up the draft board was in play on Friday, no such thing happened.

Relive the action right here.

5:00 p.m. ET: If you have some time to kill before the start of the second round, may we recommend some reading?

5:00 p.m. ET: Before we get started, a look at the Patriots’ capital heading into the second and third rounds.
