Selection: Fourth round, 105th overall

James White

Position: Running back

Height: 5-9; Weight: 204

Selection: Fourth round, 130th overall

College: Wisconsin

Weaknesses: Not considered a plowhorse or three-down back; more of a change-of-pace type . . . Saw his kick-return role decrease to the point he had just one runback last season.

Height: 6-5; Weight: 323

Selection: Fourth round, 140th overall

Weaknesses: Size can work against him against faster edge rushers . . . Effectiveness decreases on the second level . . . Attractive pedigree, but is he too nice?

Jon Halapio

Position: Guard

Height: 6-3; Weight: 323

Selection: Sixth round, 179th overall

College: Florida

Strengths: Team captain as a senior . . . Tough to beat in one-on-one matchups in the trenches . . . Hands measure 10¼ inches . . . Missed just two games in 2013 despite suffering a pectoral tear during summer workouts.

Weaknesses: Battled through myriad injuries throughout his time in Gainesville . . . Will need work to expand his role beyond right guard . . . Tied for the lowest vertical jump (21½ inches) of any offensive lineman at scouting combine.

Zach Moore

Position: Defensive end

Height: 6-5; Weight: 269

Selection: Sixth round, 198th overall

College: Concordia-St. Paul (Minn.)

Strengths: The first player from Concordia to be drafted, and the first player drafted from the Northern Sun Conference since 1992 (also by the Patriots, WR Wayne Hawkins) . . . A two-time team captain and two-time Division 2 All-American.

Weaknesses: Will have to prove himself as a Division 2 product, from a sub-.500 team no less . . . Still a raw talent despite his 33 career sacks.

Jemea Thomas

Position: Safety

Height: 5-9; Weight: 192

Selection: Sixth round, 206th overall

College: Georgia Tech

Strengths: Hard-hitting safety who also has starting experience at cornerback . . . Well-rounded defender who led the Yellow Jackets in INTs in 2012 and then in tackles in 2013 . . . Could be an immediate help on special teams.
