FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- The New England Patriots, who like to wheel and deal on draft day, made their first trade late in the third round Friday.


The club sent its third-round pick (93rd overall) to the Jacksonville Jaguars for a fourth-round pick (105th) and sixth-round pick (179th).

In these types of deals, the Patriots probably felt like they had a cluster of players who were rated similarly, and so the drop from 93 to 105 was neglible to them. To make the move and pick up a sixth-round pick is often seen by the club as good value.

The Jaguars selected Miami guard Brandon Linder with the No. 93 pick.

Patriots remaining picks:
Fourth round (105)
Fourth round (130)
Fourth round (140)
Sixth round (179)
Sixth round (198)
Sixth round (206)
Seventh round (244)
