The Patriots have traded the fifth-round pick (147) they acquired from the Dolphins and a 2016 seventh-rounder to Seattle (243). In exchange, they get a 2017 fourth-round pick to replace the selection stripped by the NFL for Deflategate and a 2016 seventh-rounder (225).

Simmons will help Broncos' secondary

Denver needed a safety, so the team went and got one. Justin Simmons at No. 98 showed very impressively at the combine, and the tape isn't half-bad either. Best/riskiest picks of Day 2 (Insider)

The Patriots and Dolphins have struck a rare AFC East draft-day trade. Patriots move into the fifth round (147) in exchange for two sixth-rounders (196, 204) and one seventh-rounder (250). This could be the spot that the Patriots eye Navy QB/RB/WR Keenan Reynolds.

Classic Bill Belichick pick in Malcolm Mitchell, a wide receiver who was once one of the top HS cornerbacks in the country, and played both ways early on at Georgia. Troy Brown, anyone?

Patriots select Georgia WR Malcolm Mitchell with their fourth-round pick (112th overall). He is 5-foot-11 5/8, 198 pounds and he has been compared by some as a Hines Ward-type with his style of play.

After waiting through 59 picks, New England finally got on the draft board in Round 2, taking Jones at No. 60. Was he the right choice? Mike Reiss answers

As expected, Red Sox have recalled infielder Marco Hernandez from Triple-A Pawtucket and optioned reliever Pat Light, thereby restoring the typical roster balance of 13 position players and 12 pitchers. Hernandez also gives manager John Farrell a left-handed bat off the plate.
