NFL Mock Draft, Pick 44: Patriots Select Ricky Sapp, OLB Clemson

The 44th pick is in and SB Nation's Patriots community, Pats Pulpit, has selected...

Clemson OLB Ricky Sapp

From Pats Pulpit:

Oh, and did I mention that he's 6-4, 252 and runs a 4.61? Yeah, Sapp represents the perfect Patriots player and a player that Coach Belichick will actually pursue. Sapp, in my opinion, has as high of a ceiling as Kindle and is more athletic than his Texan counterpart    

From Mocking The Draft:

Love this pick. Sapp is on a completely different level than Misi. The Utah player is solid, but how much did anyone really hear about him until the offseason? Sapp, although inconsistent earlier in his career, was sort of a man playing out of position at Clemson. He looks natural as a 3-4 outside linebacker. He could be an instant starter for the Patriots.    

The Pats have been looking for pass rusher help and Sapp should be able to help. As more and more teams run a 3-4, these players will become more valuable. Good pick.
