Barkevious Mingo to Patriots: Reflecting on Patriots 2013 rookie class
4. Duron Harmon (No. 91 overall)
Games started: 8
Career stats: 64 tackles, fumble recovery, 11 passes defended, six interceptions
The second Rutgers defensive back taken by the Patriots in the 2013 NFL Draft, Harmon has worked his way into the top backup role at safety for the Patriots. It should be noted that Harmon has been opportunistic intercepting passes, scooping up a handful of overthrown centerfield balls through three seasons. Harmon can spell Devin McCourty at free safety or step onto the field in sub packages.

Of course, Harmon will always be etched into Patriots history for the part he played in the 2014 playoffs. You may remember that it was Harmon who leapt into the air and plucked a Joe Flacco jump ball in the Divisional Round, ending a thrilling victory in which the Patriots overcame not just one, but two 14-point deficits to survive and advance.
