FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) - The New England Patriots will have seven picks on the final day of the NFL draft.

Thanks to a trade with the Cleveland Browns, the Patriots will have an extra pick on Saturday. New England gave up its regular pick at No. 96 - near the end of the third round - along with its seventh-rounder. The Patriots got back picks in the fourth, fifth and sixth rounds.

They’re still looking for cornerbacks after losing Derrelle Revis and Brandon Browner to free agency.

The defending Super Bowl champions added Stanford safety Jordan Richards in the second round on Friday. They picked Oklahoma defensive lineman Geneo Grissom in the third round.

The Patriots grabbed Texas defensive tackle Malcolm Brown in the first round on Thursday.
