Hobbs dealt for offensive lineman

The Patriots turned around and dealth the two fifth-round picks they acquired from Philadelphia to Baltimore for a fourth-round pick and a sixth-round pick.

With that fourth-round pick, No. 198 overall, the Patriots drafted guard Rich Ohrnberger out of Penn State.

From his Penn State bio:
"Ask any Nittany Lion who their funniest teammate is and Rich Ohrnberger's name likely is to come up first. They can't explain why; he's just funny. Whether it's in the locker room, or trying to bring some levity in the huddle, the talented guard has a natural gift of humor."

It's probably just coincidence that the Patriots replaced perhaps the most accessible Patriots on the roster with a guy known for his sense of humor. We'll see if he shows off that sense of humor when the media is allowed into the locker room or if he'll do what most Belichick rookies do and keep his mouth shut.


I'm off for Fenway Park for tonight's Red Sox-Yankees game. Check back later for more draft news as well as updates from Terry Francona's pregame press conference, locker room availability and more.
