Patriots take shot at WR with Josh Boyce

FOXBOROUGH — The Patriots had four picks remaining when the NFL draft resumed Saturday, and the first selection came early in the fourth round thanks to Thursday night’s trade with Minnesota.

New England used the 102d overall pick on wide receiver Josh Boyce of Texas Christian. Four hours later, with the 226th pick, the Patriots opted for Illinois defensive end Michael Buchanan, and with their final pick, at 235, the Patriots took Rutgers linebacker Steve Beauharnais.
