We've seen both of these picks for the Patriots in a mock draft before last month. Barron was the 27th pick and Perry was the 31st pick of the first round. Here's what NFP's Wes Bunting said about Barron:
New England has had to piece together their secondary this year, but in terms of talent they could certainly use an upgrade at a number of spots. Barron is a smart, instinctive safety with good ball skills, can play in the box and be effective bumping/running with tight ends underneath.
With Perry, Bunting pointed out his versatility as well:
Perry has worked out well all post-season and is a versatile 43 DE or 34 OLB prospect who could line-up all over. His versatility on third down gives the Patriots even more options in pressure situations.
