New England hosted six full rounds of the league's annual league day before adding to quarterback space.
The Patriots elected LSU quarterback Danny Etling in the seventh round (219th overall) of the 2018 NFL draft.
The 6-foot-3, 222-pound Etling joins quarterbacks Tom Brady and Brian Hoyer. But Etling is not guaranteed a roster, considering he has to fight Hoyer, a veteran of nine professional seasons and a second official ride with the Patriots.
Etling, who moved to LSU after two seasons in Purdue, experienced his share of ups and downs in his collegiate career.
After completing the 201
While in Purdue from 2013 to 2014, Etling completed 238 of 429 passes (55.5 percent) for 2,490 yards and 16 touchdowns against 12 interceptions.
