(UPDATE, 4:44 pm: Sources have confirmed that Deaderick has indeed signed a four-year deal with New England.) In his four-year career with Alabama, the 6-foot-4, 287-pound Deaderick started 31 of 44 career games, and accumulated 82 total tackles and 8.0 sacks.

Deaderick was taken 247th overall, one of three seventh-round picks by the Patriots. His deal is reportedly worth $1.83 million dollars, and included a signing bonus of just over $40,000. He is the sixth member of New England’s 2010 draft class to sign a contract.
