Patriots select OT Sebastian Vollmer

By: Greg
With their fourth Pick the Pats have selected Sebastian Vollmer. Vollmer is a OT out of Houston. He is from Germany. Vollmer projects as a project and wont likely start right away. NFL Network said that this pick was a reach. Many experts had him at a fourth round pick at best. But in Bill we trust.
He is 6'7 and 312 lbs.

NFL Draftcountdown:

Excellent height...Large frame with room to bulk up...Long arms...A good athlete...Nimble feet...Does a nice job in pass protection...Above average strength...Decent range...Impressive motor...Still has upside.

Still somewhat raw...Plays with inconsistent leverage...Not a natural knee bender...Struggles to recover...Doesn't sustain well...Isn't real stout at the point...Lacks great balance...Durability could be an issue.

Was born and grew up in Germany...A two-year starter at left tackle for the Cougars...Also saw some action at tight end early in his college career...Missed the 2006 season with a back injury...Was named 1st Team All-Conference USA as a senior...Put up 32 reps of 225 pounds and registered a 36+ inch vertical at his Pro Day workout...Has the ability to play either the left or right side at the next level...A solid developmental project with some extremely intriguing physical tools
