The Patriots have signed their first – round draft pick Dominique Easley, the Patriots announced today.

The defensive tackle out of Florida finished his career with 81 tackles, 5 1/2 sacks and one fumble recovery in 32 games (26 starts).

Easley was the 29th pick overall by the Patriots.

Injuries kept Easley from going higher.

Dominique Easley had a tradition at Florida, where he carried a Chucky doll to every game. I personally can’t wait to see if he will continue that with the Patriots, and I must say, I hope he does!

The Patriots also announced the signing of  rookie free agent Chris Martin from Central Florida.

Martin signed with the Texans on May 16 but was released 11 days later. 

Martin was named to the All-American Athletic Conference second team as a senior. 

He has played both left and right tackle.
