Patriots sign seventh-round pick Alfonzo Dennard

Shalise Manza Young of the Boston Globe reports that the Patriots have agreed to terms with seventh-round pick Alfonzo Dennard on a four-year contract.

Dennard, a cornerback out of Nebraska, saw his draft stock plummet due to poor offseason workouts capped off by an arrest for third-degree felony assault of a police officer. He’ll be arraigned on that charge in a couple of weeks.

Dennard was a highly regarded press corner in Cornhuskers coach Bo Pelini’s defense, playing opposite Giants 2011 first-round pick Prince Amukamara before his senior season. Dennard will battle for a 53-man roster spot in Patriots training camp this summer.

Three of the Pats’ seven draft picks are now under contract. Previously signed were seventh-round wide receiver Jeremy Ebert and second-round safety Tavon Wilson.

    Bozosforall that is the most stupid and idiotic comment I have ever seen calling a 7th round pick a bust I ridiculous a bust isn’t picked with a 7th round pick that is most likely not goof to make the team on most teams moron

    Too bad his jail sentence will exceed his rookie contract

    If you don’t have at least one friend who has taken a swing at a cop then you don’t have very entertaining friends.

    hey BOZO team do you route for ?

    Watch him turn out to be a beast. A 7th round pick, probably killing it as a rookie and the pats haters and media will still – somehow – say Bill Belechick can’t draft. Haters gona hate. Winners gonna win.

  14. rayfla says: May 17, 2012 10:23 PM

    Really! Route,like in Route 1 or is it root as root for the home team. And BTW, Bozo is a total jack wagon. Never a good thing to post, prob from NY.

    After exhaustive research I found that bozo is from a trailer park in Hatesville and inserts pejorative comments towards all teams doing better than the high school JV team he was cut from.

    Good pickup, and I doubt the Pats would’ve signed him without knowing the exact circumstances of the situation Mr Dennard is in, with regards to the authorities.

  17. jason49er says: May 17, 2012 10:56 PM

    Because it’s a cop the judge will probably throw the book at this guy. If only he was in the NFL a couple years first he’d probably get off easy.

    Ouch. I mean… having a 7th round pick bust is so heartbreaking. I bet it felt like when Golston busted… oh wait, probably not.

    Especially since Dennard was supposed to be a 2nd round pick and only dropped to the 7th because of his off-field issues.

    In defense of Bozo, one need not have a PhD in psychology to accurately assess his psychology. The dictionary definition of Bozo is a “fool” or an “idiot”; an individual adapting that moniker would be either a clown that wants to be laughed at or someone with deep feelings of inadequacy. Bozo’s the latter. The Bozo on this thread is a habitual stalker of all Patriot threads. His obsessive behavior toward Patriot fans is rooted in his need to gain power over people that he believes feel superior to him and to whom he has subconscious feelings of inferiority. He openly expresses his hatred of New England teams and fans and has a need to diminish the success of those teams. The best and the brightest (Belichick, Brady, Welker) are most often his targets because their success fuel his feelings of inadequacy. He admits only to caring about the Yankees because he wants to be a front runner. In the past, he admitted his affection for the Jets when they were a contender but now denies those feelings like a middle-school kid whose crush likes another guy. Bozo often expresses his phobia about gay men by using the term pejoratively towards heterosexuals (e.g., Brady). He purports to working in a job where he makes good coin but that’s a relative term and he likely works in a position where he has no authority or stature. In short, he is a sad guy.
