Patriots have 29th selection in NFL draft

The first round of the NFL draft is set, with the Patriots getting the 29th overall pick.

The final four draft selections of the first round were set after Sunday’s Super Bowl. The Patriots will make their selection at 29 and then the San Francisco 49ers will pick 30th, the Denver Broncos 31st, and the Seattle Seahawks at 32.

The last time the Patriots made a pick in the first round, 2012, they selected defensive end Chandler Jones (21st) and linebacker Dont’a Hightower (25th).

Other recent first round picks include Nate Solder in 2011 (17th overall), Devin McCourty in 2010 (27th), and Jerod Mayo in 2008 (10th).

The Houston Texans have the first overall pick after finishing 2-14, the worst record in the league.
