New England selects TCU receiver Boyce in fourth round

Josh Boyce is one lucky wide receiver.

As if playing with Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III in high school and the Cincinnati Bengals' Andy Dalton in college wasn't enough, Boyce now will be on the receiving end of passes from Tom Brady after the New England Patriots selected the TCU receiver with the fifth pick of the fourth round Saturday.

Boyce says, "I've been blessed to play with great quarterbacks my whole career."

The Patriots acquired the 102nd overall pick to take Boyce in a trade Thursday with Minnesota, shipping their first-rounder — 29th overall — to the Vikings for their second-, third-, fourth- and seventh-round draft choices.
