FOXBORO -- The Patriots will kick off Day 3 of the draft with five selections: a fourth-rounder (No. 105), a fifth-rounder (No. 143), two sixth-rounders (No. 198 and 210) and a seventh-rounder (No. 219).

They've had success on Day 3 before, of course. Tom Brady, you might've heard, was a sixth-round pick. Julian Edelman came off in the seventh. Matthew Slater was a fifth. Trey Flowers, Shaq Mason, Deatrich Wise and Malcolm Mitchell were fourth-rounders.
