NFL Draft 2014: New England Patriots Select Center Bryan Stork

The Patriots have three picks in this fourth round, and they went with a center, Bryan Stork, with their first pick. Stork won a national championship last year with Florida State.

New England came into this round with a couple of big needs, specifically tight end, defensive end, wide receiver, running back, and in my opinion, some depth at inside linebacker.

However upgrading the interior of their offensive line was an underrated need heading into this 2014 year, and Stork may end up competing for the starting job with Ryan Wendell. Stork is a good prospect, and could potentially help the Pats fix the middle of their offensive line.

Stork won the Rimington Award last year, which is the award given to the best center in all of college football. 

The Pats next pick is the 130th overall, which is the 30th pick in the fourth round. They then pick again 10 picks later, as they have the final pick of the fourth round.
