Pats take another DE in Jake Bequette

FOXBORO -- The Patriots continued to restock their front seven on defense Friday when they selected defensive end Jake Bequette out of Arkansas in the third round. 

Earlier in the evening, the Patriots traded their second second-round pick (62nd overall) to the Packers in exchange for a third-round pick (90th) overall and a fifth-rounder. The Patriots decided to take Bequette with that pick after taking safety Tavon Wilson with their first second-round selection earlier in the evening. 

Bequette started all 13 games for the Razorbacks and was a second-team All-SEC selection by the AP and coaches. He finished the season with 32 tackles, including 8.5 for loss and a career-high seven sacks, and tied for the team lead with five quarterback hurries. His team-leading sack total tied for fifth in the SEC and is tied for the eighth-highest single-season total in Arkansas history.

He recorded one sack in four straight games, beginning vs....

McDonald, Bard hand Sox fifth straight win

CHICAGO -- The Red Sox won their fifth straight game Friday night, beating the White Sox, 10-3, at U.S. Cellular Field. The Sox have outscored their opponents 44-19 during the streak.

Picking up his first major league win as a starter was Daniel Bard, who allowed three runs (two earned) over seven innings, striking out six and walking one while throwing 96 pitches. Matt Albers pitched two scoreless innings to finish things up for the 9-10 Red Sox.

The visitors' offense exploded in the sixth inning thanks in large part to Cody Ross' bases-loaded single and Darnell McDonald's three-run double. McDonald would cap his night with a solo home run in the ninth, giving him a career-high four RBI.

Also going deep for the Red Sox was David Ortiz, who gave the Sox a 2-1 lead with a two-run blast in the second inning.

Pats deal second Round 2 pick to Pack

FOXBORO -- After trading up twice in the first round on Thursday, the Patriots reverted to form and traded their second second-round pick to the Packers Friday night in exchange for Green Bay's third-round pick (90th overall) and a fifth-round selection (163rd overall). 

With New England's second-round pick, Green Bay took cornerback Casey Hayward out of Vanderbilt. 

Earlier in the second round, the Patriots took safety Tavon Wilson from Illinois.

Pats reach for S Tavon Wilson in 2nd round

FOXBORO -- With the first of two second-round picks, the Patriots selected Illinois safety Tavon Wilson Friday night. Wilson was not in the top 100 of many experts' mock drafts, but the Patriots saw enough from him to take a chance on him with the 48th pick overall.

Wilson was a team captain and a 21-year-old senior, two factors that may have played a significant role. He played in all 12 games (one start vs. Northwestern) as a true freshman in 2008, posting 11 tackles, one pass breakup and zero interceptions with half a tackle for loss. Wilson moved into the starting lineup in ’09 and recorded 74 tackles and a sack, with 3.5 tackles for loss in 12 games (11 starts) at cornerback.

After Illinois was hit hard by injuries, he moved to strong safety for the ’10 season and responded with two tackles for loss in 13 starts. Moved back to cornerback for the ’11 campaign, he registered 81 solo tackles, with 6 1/2 tackles for loss, one...

Sox activate Hill, send down Thomas

CHICAGO -- The Red Sox are activating Rich Hill from the disabled list for Friday's game against the White Sox, as the left-hander is ready to return to the majors less than 11 months removed from suffering a torn ulnar collateral ligament that required Tommy John surgery last June. Hill has enjoyed tremendous success during his rehab assignment in April, striking out 18 and walking just two while allowing five hits and two runs in nine innings at three different stops (Single-A Greenville, High-A Salem and Triple-A Pawtucket). Most recently, he addressed a final checkbox in his rehab assignment by appearing in back-to-back games in Pawtucket, notching a pair of strikeouts in a perfect inning on Wednesday.

Since signing initially with the Sox as a minor league free agent in 2010, Hill has made 15 big league appearances (six in 2010, nine in 2011) with the Sox without permitting a run, striking out 15 and walking four in 12 innings. He holds the record...
