Patriots Stay Local Again With UConn’s Darius Butler

The Patriots moved up to select at 40, taking local product Ron Brace of BC, and followed the move with Bulter at #41.  The 5’10”, 183-pound cornerback runs a 4.41 40 yard dash and recorded the Combine’s best jump, so he has great speed and size.  The four-year starter from Fort Lauderdale, Florida was First Team All-Big East this season and had 40 tackles, but just four passes defensed.

He has the tools, but did not make the big plays this season, however offenses were on to him and threw away from him, which is a good sign in itself.  In addition to the defense, he also returned kickoffs, for a good 23.5 yard average.

He definitely seems to fit the Patriots mold as he is versatile and will likely find his way onto the field in some capacity.  The Patriots continue to add to the secondary with this selection.
