Patriots Select OT Vollmer With Fourth Pick of Day

The Patriots fourth pick of the first day of the draft, all second rounders, is the Houston Offensive Tackle Sebastian Vollmer. The headline numbers on Vollmer are 6’8″ and 290 pounds; the man is huge and may help fortify Tom Brady’s pocket for years to come. Vollmer is the first offensive player of the four selections the Patriots had on day one. He is German born and a project, perhaps taken a bit higher than expected. However, Belichick and Company have a proven track record of taking guys with talent and molding them to fit their game.

The Patriots have plenty of good offensive linemen for Vollmer to learn from and work his way into the lineup. He only played three years at Houston, though the school averaged about 500 yards of offense this season, having missed his sophomore season with a back injury.
