With the 244th pick in the seventh round of the 2014 NFL Draft, the New England Patriots have made a selection, drafting wide receiver Jeremy Gallon out of Michigan.

Team Needs:

TE  |  DT |  DE |  LB | OG/C S RBQB

Thoughts: The Patriots have a bunch of young receivers in Aaron Dobson, Kenbrell Thompkins, Josh Boyce, and Mark Harrison, and Gallon will join that bunch.

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: Jon Halapio, G, Florida

Round 6, Pick 198 (via Philadelphia): Zach Moore, DE, Concordia St. Paul

Round 6, Pick 206: Jemea Thomas, DB, Georgia Tech

Round 7, Pick 244: Jeremy Gallon, WR, Michigan

Instant Grade: B

Gallon was super productive at Michigan, coming up with 89 receptions for 1373 yards in 2013.  You might remember him from his 369 yard record breaking performance against Indiana.  He's fast, can fight for the ball, and can play in the slot or outside.  He's very undersized, however, at 5'8".

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