At least 1 source is projecting the Pats to have 3 extra picks in this year's draft. An extra third, fifth and sixth pick. The extra 3rd pick will be no higher than 99, meaning the Pats currently will have the option to pick 6 of the top 99 players in the draft. I suspect they will trade some of their picks to trade up or get additional picks next year. (They cannot trade compensatory picks, so they will have to trade away some of their own picks.)

Sweet!
