The Patriots received four picks — a second (52nd overall), third (83rd overall), fourth (102nd overall) and seventh (229).

The Vikings used the Patriots’ pick to draft Cordarrelle Patterson, a wide receiver out of Tennessee.

The second and third rounds of the draft will take place Friday night, beginning at 6:30 p.m. Rounds four through seven will take place Saturday beginning at 12 p.m.

Last year, New England made two first-round selections — Chandler Jones and Dont’a Hightower –by trading their first- and third-round pick to move up to get Cincinnati’s pick at No. 21 and trading another first- and a fourth-round pick to Denver for the 25th pick.

The Patriots entered the night owning one pick in each of the first three rounds (Nos. 29, 59 and 91 overall) and a pair of picks in the seventh round (No2. 226, 235).
