The New England Patriots added a fourth undrafted free agent to their roster late Saturday after the draft was completed when they signed University of Miami DT Marcus Forston.

Marcus ForstonForston, who at one time was projected as a top pick amongst the defensive linemen available in the draft, has seen his stock dive over the last two seasons.  Coming out of high school he was considered a five star recruit and the number one defensive tackle in the nation.

The former Hurricane profiles as a defensive tackle in the 4-3 and is said to be strong but not always motivated, Forston has the talent to shed blocks and get up field.

He hurt his ankle at Miami and redshirted for a season and then followed that up with a mediocre junior season and still declared for the draft.  Many scouts and personnel staff said his workout at the combine was rather unimpressive leading him to be skipped over in the draft.
