Patriots Run Through Final Practice of Rookie Camp at Gillette StadiumFOXBORO, Mass. — The Patriots ran through their final practice of rookie camp Saturday, and all 20 players were present for the session, which was held in shorts, T-shirts and helmets on the outside fields.

The 20 players included seven draft picks, seven undrafted free agents and six players with one year of experience.

Sixth-round pick Nate Ebner was a limited participant during the media session, which lasted about 30 minutes. He spent Friday's media portion riding the stationary bike.

New coaching assistant Chris Simms was also spotted at Saturday's practice. He wasn't working with any positional groups during the media portion.

Interestingly, new special teams assistant coach Joe Judge led the practice's opening drill with the linebackers and defensive linemen for the second consecutive day. Linebackers coach Pepper Johnson led the stretch with the linebackers before staying off to the side while they worked with Judge and the sled.
