Welcome aboard, Tyrone McKenzie

The Patriots have selected their outside linebacker: Tyrone McKenzie of South Florida.

McKenzie had 121 tackles as a junior and 116 tackles as a senior; he had 14 pass break-ups and just 2 1/2 sacks in those two years, though, which probably indicates he's more of a run-stopper and cover guy than a pass-rusher.

The Patriots don't have a fourth-round selection; it went to Oakland in the the trade that allowed the Patriots to move up and snag defensive tackle Ron Brace.
