Pats take Rutgers Safety, Former Caesar Rodney Product Duron Harmon in round 3
FOXBOROUGH, MA (AP) — The New England
Patriots have drafted another defensive back from Rutgers, taking safety
Duron Harmon with their second pick in the third round.
Earlier in the round Friday night, they chose
cornerback Logan Ryan from Rutgers with the 83rd overall pick that they
obtained Thursday night in a trade with the Minnesota Vikings.
Harmon had 50 tackles and one interception last season.
The Patriots already have a defensive back
from Rutgers, Devin McCourty. He was drafted in the first round in 2010
and moved from cornerback to safety last season.
Earlier in the day, the Patriots chose two
players in the second round. They drafted outside linebacker Jamie
Collins of Southern Mississippi with the 52nd overall pick and wide
receiver Aaron Dobson of Marshall with the 59th pick.
