Patriots take Ohrnberger in fourth

Rich Ohrnberger was the first of Penn State's three all-conference linemen to be taken in the 2009 NFL Draft, going to the New England Patriots with the 23rd pick of the fourth round, the 123rd overall selection.

Ohrnberger, a 6-foot-2, 297-pound guard from East Meadow, N.Y., was a three-year starter for Penn State, earning first-team All-Big Ten honors this past season.

Center A.Q. Shipley and tackle Gerald Cadogan were still on the board.
