Picking in the top 10 for the first time since 2001, the Patriots moved down from 7 to 10 and landed linebacker Jerod Mayo, who has been one of their franchise players as one of Bill Belichick's best selections. Owner Robert Kraft joked at the traditional photo shoot that "Kraft and Mayo go well together," which has proven to be the case. -- Mike Reiss
