Here is Rob Rang's final he just put out.. 2012 NFL Mock Drafts - CBSSports.com NFLDraftScout.com 27. New England Patriots (from New Orleans) Chandler Jones, DE, Syracuse: With the Patriots expected to maintain at least some elements of the 4-3 defense that served as their base scheme last year, adding talent and youth at defensive end is required. Former starter Mark Anderson left via free agency and his battery-mate, Andre Carter, is recovering from a torn quad. 31. New England Patriots Nick Perry, DE, Southern California: If history can be counted on as a guide, the Patriots will likely trade out of this pick. Having addressed the defensive end position just five picks prior to this one, they're biggest area of concern is addressed and if they can't trade away the pick they could look to the secondary. Having devoted several picks there in recent years, I believe the team might go back to the defensive line where Perry, who led the Pac-12 with nine sacks as a junior, might just be scratching the surface of his potential. 48. New England Patriots (from Oakland) Jared Crick, DE, Nebraska: Considering the fact that New England might feature a completely different rotation at defensive end next season, using two of their three first picks on the line makes sense. 62. New England Patriots Janoris Jenkins, CB, North Alabama: While the perception is that the Patriots are rarely willing to gamble on character concerns, in reality, Bill Belichick has gambled several times in the past, including with Randy Moss and last year on draft day with quarterback Ryan Mallett. At this late point in the draft, Jenkins' talent is worth the risk, especially if Belichick's good friend Urban Meyer, who recruited and coached Jenkins, can vouch for Jenkins' maturation.
