The final pick in the 2019 New England Patriots draft class revisited Gillette Stadium on Friday.

According to Mike Reiss of ESPN, New England had free-agent defensive back Ken Webster in for a workout.

Webster, 25, originally arrived in the seventh round at No. 252 overall. The Ole Miss product had clocked the 40-yard dash in 4.43 seconds and the three-cone drill in 6.85 seconds at the NFL Scouting Combine, where a vertical of 43 inches and a broad jump of 133 inches were also logged. Former Patriots director of player personnel Nick Caserio described those testing numbers as “eye-popping” in his April press conference following the selection.

New England waived Webster at the conclusion of his rookie preseason. The 5-foot-11, 200-pound corner would be claimed by the Miami Dolphins, with whom he remained until agreeing to join the San Francisco 49ers’ active roster off the practice squad last September.

Webster finished 2020 on injured reserve and was waived Monday by San Francisco after re-signing on a one-year contract in January.

Through 17 career games and five starts, Webster stands with 25 tackles, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery. He saw 150 snaps on special teams last season.
