FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) -- The New England Patriots drafted outside linebacker Jamie Collins from Southern Mississippi before picking three players who play positions where they need help.

They took Collins with the first of their two second-round picks then chose wide receiver Aaron Dobson of Marshall with the other one on Friday night. In the third round, they went for a pair of Rutgers defensive backs, cornerback Logan Ryan and safety Duron Harmon.

The Patriots have four picks on Saturday's final day of the three-day draft, one in the fourth round and three in the seventh. They traded their first-round pick to the Minnesota Vikings on Thursday night.
