Patriots Draft WR Tre Nixon With Pick No. 242

For the Patriots first receiver pick of the draft, but also what looks to be the last pick of the draft, the Patriots have selected UCF WR Tre Nixon as their seventh round pick.

Nixon, the Central Florida WR, caught 19 passes for 260 yards in 2020, after his season was cut short due to a broken collarbone. He has had issues with drops all of his college career, but a good late round pickup for Belichick.

The 6-foot 187 pound ex-Knight caught 49 passes for 830 yards, along with seven touchdowns in his last fully healthy season, 2019.
