Patriots Draft Rutgers Safety Duron Harmon 91st Overall In 2013 NFL Draft
BOSTON (CBS) – The New England Patriots used all four of their draft picks on Friday night, capping off the second evening of the 2013 NFL Draft by selecting Rutgers safety Duron Harmon with the 91st overall pick.
The 6-0, 196-pound Harmon is the second Rutgers player to be drafted by the Patriots in the draft, with corner Logan Ryan being selected 83rd overall earlier on Friday.
There isn’t much about Harmon out there (his draft page on CBSSports.com is somewhat depressing), with many pundits predicting he would be an un-drafted free agent. This pick is similar to when Bill Belichick drafted Tavon Wilson in the second round of the 2012 draft, who was also projected to go much later than he was actually selected, if at all.
Harmon was the first player drafted who did not attend the NFL combine this season.
The Patriots have four selections remaining in the 2013 NFL Draft on Saturday: one in the fourth round (102nd overall) and three in the seventh round (226th, 229th and 235th).
