The New England Patriots snagged their quarterback on Day 1 of the 2021 NFL Draft, selecting Alabama’s Mac Jones at No. 15 overall.

Then, they went defense on Day 2, trading up for Alabama defensive tackle Christian Barmore early in the second round (38th overall) and grabbing Oklahoma edge rusher Ronnie Perkins late in the third (96th).
