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

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".
