Top 5 Patriots Draft Classes Hard to Nail Down

The 2016 NFL Draft is almost here and although the New England Patriots don’t have a first round draft pick due to the Deflategate sanctions by the league, with 11 draft picks they have a lot of capital to play with.

We went back and made a list of our Top 5 drafts in the Patriots history. And the 2016 class will have some big shoes to fill if one day they want to be included in the group of the top drafts in franchise history.

There was a lot of material to go through so we looked for impact players that contributed a lot of success to the team for an extended period of time. And while there is plenty of room for debate as to what year’s class gets in and which doesn’t everyone one of these draft classes was a haul for the team.

So without further ado, here’s our Top Five Patriots’ Draft Classes of All time:
