With the 244th pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, the New England Patriots have selected Jeremy Gallon (WR, Michigan) with the 244th pick of the 2014 NFL Draft. Read on for analysis.
Gallon will join a crowded group of slot receivers on the New England Patriots’ roster. At 5’8″ and only 183 pounds, he is going to need to be smart moving across the middle of the field or he won’t last long in the NFL. That didn’t stop him from dominating in the Big Ten.
Jeremy Gallon amassed 14 catches for 369 yards and two touchdowns versus Indiana – a Big Ten single-game record.

Gallon is a good route-runner that excels finding the soft-spot in zones. He has good hands and just enough speed to uncover. He also has enough elusiveness in the open field to contribute as a returner.
If Danny Amendola or Julian Edelman go down with an injury, Gallon will be ready to pick up their production.
