Patriots selected Illinois DE Michael Buchanan with the No. 226 overall pick.

Buchanan (6-foot-5 3/8, 255) was highly touted entering his senior season, but finished 2012 with pedestrian sack (4.5) and tackle-for-loss (7.0) stats. He did demonstrate burst with a 1.59 ten-yard split at the front end of his 4.78 Combine forty time. Buchanan played "space" linebacker in the Illini's 3-3-5 scheme and has long arms (34"). Buchanan will likely compete for a special teams role initially.
