NFL Draft Results: Fourth Round Sees Luke Stocker, Brandon Hogan Join NFC South

The NFC South only picks in odd rounds in the 2011 NFL Draft. After picking just one total player in the second, the division only had a pair of picks in the fourth. If you have any relevant NASCAR or Civil War jokes, please feel free to loose them in the comments here -- for those of you who care about more than just the NFC South for some reason, visit SB Nation's NFL Draft hub for notes on every pick.

The Carolina Panthers added DB Brandon Hogan from the West Virginia Mountaineers, a five-foot-ten athlete whose hands will inspire some announcer to trot out the "that's why he plays defense!" line and who has had a tough time staying out of trouble.

TE Luke Stocker went to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, giving them two big, fast tight ends, counting Kellen Winslow. Stocker showed up well at the 2011 NFL Combine and could be the best tight end in this entire draft class.

With the No. 27 pick that the Falcons gave up, the Browns picked Stanford FB/LB and future Madden cover player Owen Marecic.
