BOSTON (CBS) — The Patriots have come to terms with eight of their 11 draft picks, the team announced on Friday.

The Patriots reached deals with tight end A.J. Derby (sixth-round), defensive linemen Xzavier Dickson (seventh-round) and Trey Flowers (fourth-round), offensive linemen Tre’ Jackson (fourth-round) and Shaq Mason (fourth-round), defensive backs Jordan Richards (second-round) and Darryl Roberts (seventh-round) and linebacker Matthew Wells (sixth-round), the team announced in a release.

They also reportedly signed defensive end Geneo Grissom, who they drafted in the third round.

Only defensive lineman Malcom Brown (first-round) and longsnapper Joe Cardona (fifth-round) remain unsigned. Reaching a deal with Cardona, who was drafted out of Navy, may be slightly complicated, as he’ll have to receive special permission in order to delay his post-graduation military commitment.

The Patriots also announced the signings of seven rookie free agents on Friday:

David Andrews, 22, was a three-year starter at center for Georgia, playing in 50 games with 40 starts. The 6-foot-3, 294-pounder, was a team captain for three years and was named Second-Team All-ACC as a senior in 2014.
