Post-Draft Outlook: A closer look at the Patriots' picks: 2/40 -- Ron Brace, DL, 6-3, 330, Boston College...Brace adds remarkable size at 330 pounds and is a potential backup or replacement for Vince Wilfork. Re-signing the starting nose tackle remains a top priority, but Brace is a great option to have in case the unexpected happens. He should be versatile enough to adjust to a 3-4 or 4-3 scheme, which is important in New England's defense, and he played a critical role in shutting down the run at Boston College, making him a potential for increased playing time depending on his development this summer. - by The Sports Xchange
