FOXBORO — The Patriots continued in their theme of selecting Rutgers products by closing out the draft and picking inside linebacker Steve Beauharnais with the 235th pick overall. Beauharnais joins defensive backs Logan Ryan and Duron Harmon as draft picks who played their college ball at Rutgers.
Beauharnais didn’t receive the same attention as teammate Khaseem Greene, but scouts consider Beauharnais a solid interior presence against the run, who can find ways of getting into the backfield.
Beauharnais is considered solid and durable, with good strength in his upper and lower body. Scouts say he plays with good pad level and bend between the tackles, making him able to take on running backs and approaching blockers in the hole.
