The Patriots have signed six-round pick DB Jemea Thomas, according to his agency Universal Sports Management.
This marks the fifth draft pick that the Patriots have managed to get under contract this week.
At Georgia Tech, Thomas totaled 234 tackles 13.5 for a loss, five sacks, nine interceptions and three forced fumbles over the course his college career.
“He played in a number of different spots — in the kicking game, a little safety, a little nickel, some corner. It looks like he’s got the ability to compete at all those spots,” HC Bill Belichick said of Thomas, via ESPN Boston. “Versatile guy, smart guy. Really a four-down type player. He’s an interesting guy.”
