2023 NFL Draft: Updated list of Patriots' picks in Rounds 4-7 originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston
As is tradition, the New England Patriots will be very busy on the final day of the NFL Draft.
The Patriots once again are backloaded on picks in the 2023 draft, with nine total selections in Rounds 4 through 7. New England picked up an extra fourth-rounder from the Pittsburgh Steelers on Thursday night while moving down from No. 14 to No. 17 to take Oregon cornerback Christian Gonzalez, then made one pick each in the second and third rounds Friday, declining to trade up for an extra Day 2 pick.

The result was the Patriots taking three defenders through three rounds: Gonzalez, Georgia Tech defensive end Keion White and Sacramento State safety Marte Mapu. The team will be busy right out the gate Saturday with four picks in the fourth round, and it's worth monitoring whether Bill Belichick and his staff package any of those picks in another day.
Day 3 of the 2023 NFL Draft kicks off at 12 p.m. ET with Round 4 and runs all the way through pick No. 259 in Round 7.
