With the 140th pick in the fourth round of the 2014 NFL Draft, the New England Patriots have made a selection, taking offensive tackle Cameron Fleming out of Stanford.

Team Needs:

TE  |  DT |  DE |  LB | OG/C | S | RB | QB

Thoughts: The Patriots don't have a lot of depth at offensive tackle after Nate Solder, Sebastian Vollmer, and Marcus Cannon, so Fleming's selection represents somewhat of a need.  There are some scouts who think Fleming, who is a large specimen at 6-5, 323lbs, could also slide inside to guard.

Patriots Draft Picks:

Round 1, Pick 29: Dominique Easley, DL, Florida

Round 2, Pick 62: Jimmy Garoppolo, QB, Eastern Illinois

Round 4, Pick 105: Brian Stork, C, Florida State

Round 4, Pick 130: James White, RB, Wisconsin

Round 4, Pick 140 (Compensatory): Cameron Fleming, OT, Stanford

Round 6, Pick 179: Today

Round 6, Pick 198 (via Philadelphia): Today

Round 6, Pick 206: Today

Round 7, Pick 244: Today

Instant Grade: B-

A lot of projections had Fleming going day two as a third round selection, so this is seemingly good value for him at 140.  Fleming is strong, a bit raw, and inconsistent but is a very intelligent player who has a high ceiling.  The Patriots definitely had bigger needs, but at this point, it's perfectly fine to go BPA on a project player that could help them down the road.

We'll have more on the selection soon. What do you think of the Patriots' pick? Leave your thoughts below!
