The fourth-annual ESPNBoston.com mock draft, which includes three insightful commenters on the Patriots blog, was completed on Monday. The Patriots' selection was California receiver Keenan Allen.
Allen was one of the Patriots' 30 pre-draft visitors. He is viewed as one of the better route-runners among receivers in the draft, although a slow time in the 40-yard dash will naturally lead some teams to have concerns.
There were other intriguing possibilities on the board in the mock draft, including WR Justin Hunter, CB D.J. Hayden, CB Blidi Wreh-Wilson, CB Jamar Taylor, DE/OLB Tank Carradine, DE/OLB Datone Jones and DL Jesse Williams, among others.
If you were making the selection, what would you have done? And with perhaps a better feel for the talent in the draft, would you attempt to trade down if you were the Patriots?
