With the final pick of the fourth round, the New England Patriots have taken an offensive tackle, Cameron Fleming out of Stanford.

Fleming is a big guy, standing at 6’5, and weighing 323 pounds. And based on everything I have seen, he is a good value pick here with the 140th overall selection. The Patriots are pretty much set at offensive tackle, but Fleming can move inside and play guard, which is probably why Bill Belichick decided to pick him. Belichick loves versatile players, as it seems like having players like that saves the Pats every single year.

At this point, the Pats have successfully provided good depth for the interior of the offensive line. They took Bryan Stork earlier in the fourth round, and now with Fleming on board, they have plenty of talent in the middle of that group.

Fleming is also extremely smart, as he graduated with a degree in aeronautics, and astronautics.

New England doesn’t have a fifth round pick, so barring a trade, the next time we will see them make a selection will be early in the sixth round.
