BRYAN STORK

Position: Center

School: Florida State

Height: 6-foot-4

Weight: 315 pounds

Achievements: 2013 Rimington Trophy (top center in the nation), 2013 consensus All-American, 2013 first-team All-ACC (media, coaches)

What he brings: Stork has ideal size, and, according to analysts, he is a technically sound athlete with good quickness and positioning. Analysts also say, though, that he has difficulty with his body control and can be bulled when he plays tall.

Where the Patriots could get him: Rounds 4-6

Notes: Stork missed a game against Wake Forest during the 2013 season after he suffered an ankle injury and missed a game against Savannah State in 2012 because of an undisclosed injury. … He played in every offensive snap in Florida State’s comeback win over Auburn during the BCS national championship. … Stork was a tight end in high school and had 43 pancake blocks before he redshirted during his first year at Florida State. … The Vero Beach, Fla., native said in January that if he wasn’t playing football he would want to become a pilot like his father.
