With the draft over, the New England Patriots have 85 players on the roster and can add five more undrafted free agents. There's also a chance that the Patriots will churn the back-end of their roster to add more undrafted free agents.
The Patriots have a nice history of adding contributors in free agency, whether it's Super Bowl hero Malcolm Butler or last year's starting center David Andrews. You can always count on the Patriots to keep a couple of undrafted players around as special teams players, or as cheap back-ups.
Please use the comments section if you hear the Patriots linked to any undrafted free agent prospect:
