The New England Patriots will select 11 times in the 2016 NFL draft, which begins Thursday night.

The Pats will make four selections in the first three rounds, including with picks 60, 61, 91 and 96. New England will also choose five times in the sixth round.

The team’s five sixth-round selections will tie the NFL draft record for most picks in a single round, which previously belonged solely to the Dallas Cowboys from the seventh round of the 2014 draft.

The Patriots had to forfeit their first-round pick this year due to their involvement in the Deflategate scandal.
