Marcus Cannon is one of the biggest linemen to ever roam New England.

The Patriots have a new potential clipboard holder.

The Patriots have selected Arkansas quarterback Ryan Mallett with the 74th pick in the 2011 NFL Draft. Mallett has undeniable talent, but fell down draft boards due to some character issues. Mallett has perhaps the best arm in the entire draft.

Shane Vereen Picked By Patriots

Shane Vereen is your newest Patriots running back.

Joining Nate Solder (OT, Colorado) and Ras-I Dowling (DB, Virginia), the Patriots have selected Shane Vereen (RB, California) with the 56th pick in the draft.

Vereen was our RB pick for the Patriots in our positional preview. This is what we had to say about him:

Our favorite change-of-pace back in the loaded bunch of Hunter, Todman, Locke, Jones, and others. Vereen has a deceptive ability to run inside, while being a force in the passing game. He is a guy that can complement what Green-Ellis brings to the table.

Vereen will join Ben-Jarvus Green-Ellis, Danny Woodhead, and a host of veterans on the running back depth chart.
