The New England Patriots are focusing their attention on filling out their roster with young talent through the NFL draft, if owner Robert Kraft’s recent comments are any indication. So it’s interesting to bring our focus on how the roster might change in the 2022 NFL draft, with the Patriots set to pick first at No. 21 overall.

So that’s exactly what I did in this mock draft, spinning a deal with the Buffalo Bills to move back in the first round — while picking up another second-round draft choice. With that in mind, let’s dive into this mock draft.
