Patriots Draft Florida State Guard Tre’ Jackson 111th Overall In Fourth Round

FOXBORO, Mass. — The New England Patriots have reunited Bryan Stork and Tre’ Jackson.

The Patriots used their 111th overall pick in the fourth round on Jackson, who started at right guard for Florida State from 2012 to 2014. Stork started next to Jackson for two years with the Seminoles at center.

Jackson, who measured at 6-foot-4, 330 pounds at the NFL Scouting Combine, ran a 5.52-second 40-yard dash with just a 25-inch vertical leap and 8-feet broad jump. He ran a 5.27-second short shuttle at his pro day with 20 reps on the bench press.

The Patriots had a major void along their interior offensive line with last year’s starting left guard Dan Connolly still available in free agency. Jackson should compete for one of two roles at guard with Ryan Wendell and Cameron Fleming.

Jackson was named South Team MVP at the 2015 Senior Bowl. He was a consensus All-American after his senior year at Florida State.
