The NFL has allowed teams to sign undrafted free agents tonight, and according to multiple media reports (hat tip to Greg Bedard of the Boston Globe), the Patriots have already inked two undrafted rookie free agents.
The first, offensive tackle Corey Woods of Akron, is a four year starter who played both sides of the line for the Zips. While touted as being fundamentally sound and experienced, Woods is a little bit stiff in the hips and can struggle with speed rushers. Woods stands at just under 6'5" and 303 lbs. He could potentially convert to guard for the Pats.
The Patriots also reportedly signed Jeremy Ross, the return specialist / receiver out of California. Ross, standing at 6' and 209 lbs, is a thick-built receiver who was started sparingly during his career at Cal. He has excellent measurables with a 39" vertical and a 4.44 40 yard dash. While his production wasn't great as a receiver at Cal and he was known to drop passes, he showed a lot of potential as a punt and kick returner, and definitely looks like a player to watch in training camp for the Patriots.
We will keep you updated as the Patriots continue to sign undrafted free agents.
Update: Jeremy Ross has confirmed that he's signed with the Patriots via twitter.
