The Patriots have drafted yet another offensive lineman, taking Florida guard Jon Halapio with the 179th pick (third pick of sixth round).

The Patriots obviously viewed their offensive line as major need going into the draft, as they've now spent three of their four Day 3 picks so far on lineman. Between Bryan Stork, Cameron Fleming and Halapio, they've added a body at center, tackle and guard.

Halapio was a two-time captain with the Gators, but he faces durability questions after battling an 80% torn pectoral muscle most of his senior season. When on the field, he's described as "tough as nails" and "country strong", although his athleticism isn't as good as some of the players drafted ahead of him.

The Patriots currently have three more picks in the draft: two sixth rounders (198, 206) and a seventh (244).
