The Patriots have selected Boston College defensive lineman Ron Brace with the No. 40 pick, the eighth pick in the second round and the pick acquired from the Oakland Raiders in exchange for the No. 47 pick, a fourth-round pick and a sixth-round pick.
They then selected UConn cornerback Darius Butler with the No. 41 pick, the ninth pick of the second round. That's the first of three picks acquired from the Green Bay Packers for a first-round pick and a fifth-round pick.
