Patriots select Boyce at 102
By Mike Reiss
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- The Patriots selected Texas Christian wide receiver Josh Boyce with their fourth-round draft choice (102nd overall).
Boyce took a pre-draft visit to Gillette Stadium and is considered as a "height-weight-speed" prospect among scouts. At 5-foot-11 and 206 pounds, he has good size, and ran a 4.38 time in the 40-yard dash.
Boyce totaled 66 receptions for 891 yards and 7 touchdowns last season. He is considered an intelligent receiver who grasps complex concepts, although some analysts say his timed speed didn't always match his game speed.
