Post-Draft Outlook:
BEST PICK: UConn CB Darius Butler might be a steal as the 41st overall pick. He established himself as the top cornerback in the Big East Conference and also served a dual-role on special teams, which could keep him in the mix when final cuts are made in July. Butler finished with the 10th most return yards in school history and also displayed a nose for the end zone, becoming the first player in conference history to record a touchdown on a kick return, an interception return, a reception and a rushing play. A closer look at the Patriots' picks: 2/41 -- Darius Butler, CB, 5-10, 183, Connecticut...Butler isn't the tallest corner in the world at 5-10, but his ability to perform on special teams may help the Patriots absorb the loss of Ellis Hobbs, who they traded to the Eagles in exchange for two fifth-round picks. The Patriots had back-to-back picks here in the second round and used them to sew up the front and back lines on defense. Butler is a ballhawk with exceptional speed and could be perfect in a slot defender role against elusive receivers underneath. He needs to play a role in the kick-return game to earn his playing time. - by The Sports Xchange

 Draft Scout Darius Butler News
03/09/15 - CB Darius Butler, who was scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent March 10, agreed to re-sign with the Colts Sunday (March 8). Butler's deal is worth a reported $5 million over two years and includes a $1 million signing bonus.
03/08/15 - CB Darius Butler, unrestricted FA update, has really come on for the Colts over the last couple of seasons. Butler had four interceptions in each of the 2012 and 2013 seasons. And while he did not come up with a pick this past year, Butler has developed into one of the better nickel backs in the NFL. While Indianapolis would most likely be interested in retaining his services, they may let him test the market before coming up with any kind of new deal.
12/11/14 - CB Darius Butler (illness) was held out of Thursday's practice session. Butler is one of three defensive backs who are battling illness, along with S Sergio Brown and S LaRon Landry. He is expected to play Sunday against the Texans.
11/27/14 - CB Darius Butler (knee) saw limited practice time Thursday. He is expected to play Sunday.
11/24/14 - CB Darius Butler (burner) left Sunday's game with Jacksonville. Butler, though, was checked out after the Jaguars game and is expected to be cleared to face Washington this week. A final decision will be made later this week.
