With the 179th pick in the sixth round of the 2014 NFL Draft, the New England Patriots have made a selection, taking offensive guard Jon Halapio out of Florida.

Team Needs:

TE  |  DT |  DE |  LB | OG/C | S | RBQB

Thoughts: Halapio represents the third offensive lineman selected by the Patriots on day three.  He's got good size for a guard at 6-4 323lbs and was a team captain and three year starter for the Gators.

Instant Grade: B

The Patriots have added some more intriguing camp competition and another developmental prospect with the selection of Halapio. Has some intriguing traits, smarts, and physical tools but is a bit inconsistent and has some durability concerns.  Not a bad pick by any stretch, but the Patriots have now selected more lineman than can make the final roster (which could be a good thing).

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