New England’s final pick of the 2012 NFL Draft was wide receiver Jeremy Ebert out of Northwestern as he was selected in the seventh round, 235th overall.

While playing at Northwestern, Ebert was utilized as a slot receiver as he recorded fairly productive stats his senior year: 75 receptions, 1,060 yards and 11 touchdowns.

With the 224th overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, the New England Patriots selected cornerback Alfonzo Dennard out of Nebraska—and let me tell you one thing: This pick was an absolute steal.

Dennard might have came with some character issues, as he was arrested in late April was he allegedly punched a police officer in Lincoln, Nebraska—but prior to his arrest, I had Dennard going in either the late first round or in the second or third rounds.

This selection was a great value pick for Bill Belichick and the Patriots.

With the 197th overall selection in the 2012 NFL Draft the New England Patriots selected defensive back Nate Ebner out of Ohio State.

The first thing that you probably heard about Ebner is that he’s a former rugby player in high school as well as at Ohio State—but he obviously still played football while at Ohio State.

The New England Patriots selected defensive end Jake Bequette  out of Arkansas with the 90th overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft.

The Patriots acquired this pick as they traded their 62nd overall pick to the Green Bay Packers in exchange for the 90th and 163rd overall selections.

In probably the most interesting draft selections that the New England Patriots made in the 2012 NFL draft was selecting Tavon Wilson out of Illinois with the 48th overall pick.

For starters, I did not like this selection at all—but Wilson sure impressed me in his rookie season.
