ILB Anthony Leonard latest UDFA addition

By Mike Rodak

West Virginia inside linebacker Anthony Leonard will be joining the Patriots as an undrafted rookie free agent, according to Leonard's own Twitter feed.

Starting all 13 games last season, Leonard finished third on the team with 70 tackles, including 6.5 for a loss.

Leonard will join a position already stocked by Jerod Mayo, Brandon Spikes, Gary Guyton, and Dane Fletcher, meaning that Leonard will likely have to carve a role on special teams in order to be considered for the 53-man roster.
