Belichick explains approach to '15 Draft

brightcove.createExperiences();

FOXBORO — Bill Belichick walked into the room Saturday night and sounded like a football man happy with the way his team added depth to a team coming off a Super Bowl title. In all, the Patriots selected seven defensive players (only one cornerback), three offensive players (all on Saturday) and a special teams player with their 11 picks over three days.

“That’€™s another draft in the books. It was kind of a big day for us,” Belichick said. “We were pretty involved all the way through each round ‘€“ either picking or moving or whatever in the round. So, doing a lot of activity. I feel like things got off to a good start with [Trey] Flowers; real productive player at Arkansas. [He]...

Mayweather beats Pacquiao on points

In the richest fight in the history of boxing, Floyd Mayweather improved to 48-0 after beating Manny Pacquiao on points Saturday night.

Two ringside judges scored the fight 116-112, while the other ruled it 118-110.

Mayweather was able to use his superior reach for much of the fight to fend off the smaller Pacquiao, who ended up chasing his opponent for much of the fight.

“I take my hat off to Manny Pacquiao. I see now why he is at the pinnacle of boxing,” Mayweather told reporters. “I knew he was going to push me, win some rounds. I wasn’t being hit with a lot of shots until I sit in a pocket and he landed a lot of shots.”

It was disclosed after the decision that Pacquiao was participating in the fight with an injured right shoulder, which he damaged around March 11 (according to promoter Bob Arum). The Nevada boxing...

Report: Patriots to sign Michigan QB as UDFA

FOXBORO — The Patriots will sign former Michigan quarterback Devin Gardner as an underrated free agent and convert him to wide receiver, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

The 6-foot-4, 216-pounder has been Michigan’s No. 1 quarterback the last few years, and posted a 61 percent completion rate, 6,336 passing yards, with 44 touchdowns and 32 picks over the course of his career with the Wolverines. But it sounds like the Patriots will try and push Gardner down the same road they went with Julian Edelman, who moved from college quarterback to receiver when he joined New England and great success as a result.

For what it’s worth, Gardner does have some receiving background — he had 18 catches for 286 yards and four touchdowns as a collegian.

Hanigan has surgery, out until at least AS break

The Red Sox will be without catcher Ryan Hanigan for quite some time.

After fracturing his finger Friday night, the catcher had surgery Saturday and isn’t expected to return until at least after the All-Star break.

“He had surgery today,” manager John Farrell said. “There were some pins inserted. It’s going to be a lengthy recovery time. I wouldn’t anticipate him back before the All-Star break.”

With Blake Swihart making his major league debut Saturday, the team has he and Sandy Leon as the only catchers. Farrell doesn’t know how the exact split of time will go.

“I don’€™€™t have an exact split on it,”€ Farrell said before the game. “Blake is a darn good prospect. And yet, he’€™€™s going to get a lot...

Pats take Arkansas TE Derby in 6th round

FOXBORO — Three incredibly early thoughts on the Patriots selection of Arkansas tight end AJ Derby in the sixth round (202nd overall) of Saturday’s NFL draft.

1) Derby is a converted quarterback who made the move to tight end between his junior and senior season. After playing one season at Coffeyville Community College (after starting his college career at Iowa in 2011), he transferred to Arkansas in 2013, and as a junior signal-caller, he went 19-for-36 for 178 yards and a touchdown in seven games with the Razorbacks. He made the move to tight end as a senior and had 303 yards receiving on 22 catches and three touchdowns, including a career-long 54-yard touchdown reception.

2) In New England, the 6-foot-5, 255-pounder will face an uphill battle for...
