One of the biggest days on the NFL calendar is finally here: the 2022 draft. Las Vegas will be the backdrop as the first round begins on Thursday night. With the Patriots having the 21st overall pick, this could give them a chance to make a splash in the first round.

The Patriots have needs on both sides of the football. This draft has playmakers on both sides of the football, so this could give the Patriots a chance to land an impact player. Wide receiver Chris Olave of Ohio State would be a perfect example of a playmaker. He recorded 65 receptions for 936 yards and 13 touchdowns last year.

New England could also benefit from a player like Nakobe Dean. The former Georgia star racked up 72 tackles and six sacks last season, as he helped the Bulldogs to the national championship.

This draft is certainly important for the Patriots. However, there will be star power throughout the entire first round. It’s worth tuning in for, and seeing where each draft pick will fall.

Here’s everything you need to know in order to catch the first round of the draft.
