The New England Patriots are heading into their month-long vacation with all their draft picks signed and a full 90-man roster. The Patriots locked up their final unsigned draft pick on Monday, when they agreed to terms with first-round draft pick Dominique Easley, the team announced. The rookie defensive tackle practiced with the Patriots for the first time on Thursday on the final day of minicamp. Easley is recovering from a torn ACL, suffered in September. Easley practiced without a brace on his knee. The Patriots also filled their roster by signing undrafted rookie offensive tackle Chris Martin. Martin signed with the Houston Texans out of Central Florida before being released on May 27. Martin ran a 5.14-second 40-yard dash at his pro day in March at 6-foot-5, 305 pounds. Martin started 24 games at tackle for Central Florida and two at tight end.Filed under: Doug Kyed, New England Patriots, Top Stories
