Post-Draft Outlook: A closer look at the Patriots' picks: 2/58 -- Sebastian Vollmer, OT, 6-7, 312, Houston...With their fourth second-round pick, the Patriots shored up the trenches by drafting a left tackle with the versatility to play tight end. Vollmer didn't start playing football until he was 14. When he did he helped his German prep school team win two titles. His versatility as a tight end makes him a candidate for a role in the red zone, where the Patriots often use a little trickery to get on the scoreboard. He has long arms, so he's good in pass protection, but, at the end of the day, is still a work in progress seeing as though he's only been in the United States for less than a decade. - by The Sports Xchange
