The Patriots also have the 34th overall pick in the draft later this month. Here’s a look at who’s been selected with the No. 34 pick the last 10 years. (Click on each name to find their career stats.)

2008: Devin Thomas, WR (Washington)

2007: Paul Posluszny, LB (Buffalo)

2006: D’Qwell Jackson, LB (Cleveland)

2005: Brodney Pool, S (Cleveland)

2004: Chris Snee, G (New York Giants)

2003: Boss Bailey, LB (Detroit)

2002: DeShaun Foster, RB (Carolina)

2001: Kyle Vanden Bosch, DE (Arizona)

2000: Mark Roman, CB (Cincinnati)

1999: Chris Terry, T (Carolina)

The Patriots have selected at No. 34 just once in team history, but they certainly hit the jackpot with the pick — linebacker Steve Nelson was taken with the 34th overall selection in the 1974 draft. Nelson played 14 seasons with the Patriots, and ended up as a three-time Pro Bowler who finished with 1,776 career tackles. In addition, he was named to the Patriots All-Decade team for both the 1970s and 1980s.
