Patriots selected Florida DT Dominique Easley with the No. 29 overall pick in the NFL draft.
Easley (6-foot-1 3/4, 288) tore both of his ACLs at UF, with the latest coming last September to end his college career. Rotoworld draft guru Josh Norris considers Easley a top-five talent on tape. A violent, quick-twitch three technique, Easley's best season was 2012, when he racked up 8.5 tackles for loss and four sacks in 11 games. Coming out of high school in 2011, Easley was Rivals' No. 7 player in the entire country. He'll be a plus NFL starter if his health cooperates. Easley should be quick to push for playing time next to NT Vince Wilfork. New England's biggest 2013 weakness was its interior defensive line. Thu, May 8, 2014 11:27:00 PM

Draft insider Tony Pauline noted that Florida DT Dominique Easley did not work out at Florida's recent Pro Day and plans "a mid-to-late April workout."

Easley could easily be a top-10 pick in this years draft, unfortunately he now has two ACL tears on his resume to opposite knees. After Easley tore his left ACL in 2011, he rebounded nicely and played at a high level. Easley ruptured the ACL in his right knee back in September. Rotoworld's Josh Norris has Easley ranked at No.8 on his Top 100, and believes he could still be a top-40 pick like Cornelius "Tank" Carradine. Norris has compared Easley's skill set to Jay Ratliff and Earl Mitchell.

"Left it all on field. Knee injuries will cause slip but could be mid-round steal." Easley ruptured the ACL in his right knee back in September and tore his left ACL in 2011. When healthy, Easley typically sets up camp on the opposition's side of the line of scrimmage.

Easley, who withdrew from Florida earlier this month, ruptured the ACL in his right knee back in September. Easley tore his left ACL in 2011. "He'll have plenty of interest," Florida coach Will Muschamp said in September. "He'll be a productive guy on the next level. He's a really good football player. He's extremely intelligent. He gets the game. His tape speaks for itself and how he plays the game and approaches the game. He'll be fine. There will be a lot of organizations that want him in their organization."

Senior DT Dominique Easley has withdrawn from Florida to begin his NFL draft preparation, according to Neil Stratton.

Easley has reportedly signed with Tom Santanello of Elevate Football. This decision is not out of the ordinary for an injured prospect in his final season of college football, and Easley will probably receive great attention during his rehab process from a second major knee injury. We absolutely love his game from the 1 or 3 technique. He makes a living disrupting opponents' plans on their side of the line of scrimmage.

Draft insider Tony Pauline noted he never considered Florida senior DT Dominique Easley a top 75 selection.

Pauline seemed most concerned about Easley's size, which is likely around 6'2/285 pounds, and wondered where he would fit. The draft insider also noted that Easley was given a seventh-round grade by scouting services entering this season, which is a shock to us. We think Easley fits exactly what the NFL wants now: an upfield presence that disrupts with quickness and strong hands. He could be an Earl Mitchell or Jay Ratliff type.
