A complete seven-round 2019 NFL mock draft for the New England Patriots.
These New England Patriots are arguably the greatest dynasty in the history of the NFL. Their continued success is completely unprecedented and incredibly impressive. As they showed this season, you cannot ever count out a Patriots team led by Bill Belichick and Tom Brady.
Heck, they just added another Super Bowl victory — their sixth together — to their already illustrious résumé.
That being said, Brady and Belichick are not going to be around forever. The Pats must start nailing some picks in the draft if life after Brady is going to have any sort of success. How can the Patriots continue to build around Brady while also build for the future? Find out in this complete seven-round 2019 NFL mock draft.

The Patriots clearly need an influx of talent on the defensive side of the ball, but it’s not like the offensive is loaded with elite-level playmakers either. Tom Brady hid a lot of warts for the Pats’ offense this season, but their lack of impact pass catchers has hurt them time and time again. The New England Patriots clearly need to add to their stock of pass catchers and they do just that in the very first round of this mock draft.
Deebo Samuel is one of the most exciting wide receiver prospects in the entire 2019 NFL Draft class. He is a smooth receiver who shows fantastic route running ability and quickness in short spaces. He is not a big-time burner who will consistently take the top off of defenses, but Samuel is a quick and shifty player who can make defenders miss. He is a guy who can create space and extra yardage when it does not appear to be there.
Samuel excelled out of the slot in college, showcasing his short-area quickness and fantastic route running ability. However, do not think about him as only a slot guy. He has the size, athleticism and toughness to compete on the outside.
The Pats could add Samuel to the mix and make him an immediate threat out of the slot. Nobody uses slot receivers better than New England, making Samuel an obvious fit. However, his versatility at the wide receiver position would also make him an appealing option for Belichick and the Patriots.
Samuel would give the Patriots an exciting weapon for Brady right off the bat. On top of that, he is the kind of player who can grow into a true number one option down the line, potentially leading their receiving corps after #12 hangs it up.
