New England starts day three: Malcolm Mitchell

On day three of the NFL draft, New England kicked off the day by drafting Georgia wide receiver Malcolm Mitchell. Mitchell has the personality and heart that the Patriots look for in a young player.

Having no picks on day one thanks to Deflategate, New England’s first pick in the 2016 NFL Draft came on day two. The Patriots decided to fill what might be their biggest need by drafting Alabama cornerback Cyrus Jones with the 60th overall selection.
