Patriots Reportedly Reach Agreement With First-Round Pick Devin McCourty

The Patriots will likely now have all of their draft picks in camp. According to his agent, Andy Simms, first-round pick Devin McCourty has come to terms with New England on a five-year deal, reports Mike Reiss. Details have yet to be announced.

Simms added that he expects McCourty to report to training camp on Wednesday.

McCourty, a cornerback from Rutgers, was the 27th pick in the 2010 NFL Draft with the plan that he'd be an every-down player, says Pats Pulpit.

McCourty was drafted in the first round with the expectations that he'd be an every down player. After he was drafted, I compiled a table that showed McCourty as the most well rounded corner in the draft, and one of the highest potential picks. He can develop to become a lock down corner over the next couple years, but in the mean time he can contribute as the #2 or #3 corner, will helping out on special teams- which is a pretty good gig for an end-of-the-first-round rookie.
