FOXBORO — With the 206th pick in the 2014 NFL draft, the Patriots selected cornerback Jemea Thomas out of Georgia Tech.

At 5-foot-9 and 192 pounds, the slightly undersized — but solidly built — Thomas played all four years at Tech as a defensive back, starting the final 28 games of his career on defense.

As a junior, he finished second on the team with 86 tackles and four interceptions. In 2013, he started all 13 games as a senior, and led the team in solo tackles (73), total tackles (88) and pass break-ups (8). He had 9 interceptions in his last three seasons as a collegian.

The Patriots are scheduled to make one more pick on the afternoon, a seventh-round selection.
