Patriots' rookie cornerback Alfonzo Dennard, who saw his stock plummet after being arrested outside a Lincoln, Neb. bar just days before the NFL Draft began, entered a plea of not guilty on Wednesday.

According to the Omaha World-Herald, Dennard entered a written plea of not guilty and waived his arraignment hearing on a charge of third-degree assault of a police officer and resisting arrest.

His next court date has not yet been set.

The 22-year old Nebraska product was the Big Ten defensive back of the year last fall and was a four-year starter for the Huskers.
