Kyle’s Pick: Louis Nix, DT, Notre Dame
The Patriots could add a tight end or much needed wide receiver in the first round. Tom Brady does need some help on the offensive side of the ball. However, they can’t pass up the opportunity to draft Vince Wilfork’s replacement at Nose Tackle.

Dan’s Pick: Jace Amaro, TE, Texas Tech
With Aaron Hernandez long gone and Rob Gronkowski struggling to stay healthy, the Patriots offense has lacked its usual punch. Amaro could offer New England’s offense another dynamic option at the tight end position and develop into a dangerous duo with a healthy Gronkowski.
