2009 NFL Draft: New England Patriots Recap

The draft is finally behind us. After much speculation about who the Patriots would select, here are the players Bill Belichick and the front office ultimately chose to be a part of New England.

  1. 2nd Round (32nd overall): Patrick Chung, SS - Oregon
  2. 2nd Round (40th overall): Ron Brace, DT - Boston College
  3. 2nd Round (41st overall): Darius Butler, CB - Connecticut
  4. 2nd Round (58th overall): Sebastian Vollmer, OL - Houston
  5. 3rd Round (83rd overall): Brandon Tate, WR - North Carolina
  6. 3rd Round (97th overall): Tyrone McKenzie, OLB - South Florida
  7. 4th Round (123rd overall): Rich Ohrnberger, OG - Penn State
  8. 5th Round (170th overall): George Bussey, OT - Louisville
  9. 6th Round (198th overall): Jake Ingram, LS - Hawaii
  10. 6th Round (207th overall): Myron Pryor, DT - Kentucky
  11. 7th Round (232nd overall): Julian Edelman, QB/WR - Kent State
  12. 7th Round (234th overall): Darryl Richard, DT - Georgia Tech

There you have it, folks. That's a haul of 12 rookies for 2009. Broken down by position, that's 3 defensive linemen, 3 offensive linemen, 2 wide receivers, 1 cornerback, 1 linebacker, 1 safety, and 1 long snapper.

The Patriots also traded cornerback Ellis Hobbs to the Philadelphia Eagles for both of their fifth round picks. Finally, the Patriots stocked themselves pretty well for the future, trading two of their third round selections to the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Tennessee Titans. In return, the Pats received their 2010 second round picks (so make sure you root against these guys next year!). Those picks may be extra important with all of our potential free agents coming up, depending on how the CBA situation plays out.
