Krishawn Hogan, WR, Marian
Trevor Knight, QB, Texas A&M
Trevor Knight was considered a coveted sleeper quarterback. After not drafting a qb, help was needed and Knight should return great value here behind Drew Stanton for a few years. ESPN profiled Krishawn Hogan on day 3 of the draft. Hogan was arguably the top FA wide reciever.
Darius Englas, EDGE, South Carolina
Alex Torgersen, QB, Penn
Torgersen was considered a sleeper quarterback with experience in a pro-style stystem. He was expected to be drafted. English is one dimensional as a pass rusher, but should provide value in a league that covets pass rushers.
Austin Rehkow, P, Idaho
Rehkow was considered the top punter in the class.
Ben Boulware, LB, Clemson
Fred Ross, WR, Mississippi State
Boulware is very unathletic by NFL standards, but was the leader on defense for the national champion Tigers.
Freddie Stevenson, FB, Florida State
Stevenson was considered the top fullback in the class
Demetrious Cox, S, Michigan State
Hardy Nickerson, LB, Illinois
Najee Murray, CB, Kent State
Channing Stribling, CB, Michigan
Murray was a PFF darling. PFF slotted Murray as a 5th round draft pick. Stribling could compete for the nickel CB job right away.
Storm Norton, OT, Toledo
Des Lawrence, CB, UNC
Norton has NFL size and dominated his competition at lowly Toledo. Lawrence is a PFF darling, PFF had him slotted in the 4th round.
Dylan Cole, LB, Missouri State
Dare Ogunbowale, RB, Wisconsin
Garrett Sickels, DE, Penn State
Sickels will excel as a rotational defensive lineman. He has an exceptionally high motor.
Jeremy Cutrer, CB, Middle Tennessee
Amba Etta-Tawo, WR, Syracuse
Carroll PHillips, LB, Illinoise
Ezra Robinson, CB, Tennessee State
Etta-Tawo was a favorite of my respected Draft Niks and should compete for a role right away. Phillips was once considered a 3rd round prospect as a pass rusher before he flunked his medical evals. The corners were priority free agents, however they will have to earn their way on a surprisingly deep secondary.
De'Veon Smith, RB, Michigan
Damore-ea Stringefellow, WR, Ole Miss
Smith was the bellcow back for Michigan in a pro-style offense. Stringefellow was considered a 3rd round prospect before his character concerns came to light.
Aviante Collins, OG, TCU
Harvey Langi, LB, BYU
My personal #1 UDFA, no surprise he chose the Patriots as he likely had his pick of teams. Langi got the biggest signing bonus of any UDFA.
Travin Dural, WR, LSU
Jessamen Dunker, OG, Tennessee State
Jarron Jones, DT, Notre Dame
Travis Rudolph, WR, Florida State
Chad Wheeler, OT, USC
I expected Jarron Jones to go in the 4th round. Wheeler was considered by some to be better than David Sharpe, who went on day 3.
Connor Harris, LB, Lindenwood
Gabe Marks, WR, Washington State
Javarius Leamon, OT, South Carolina State
Connor Harris was expected to be off the board in the 4th or 5th round. Leamon has NFL size and footwork.
Pharaoh Brown, TE, Oregon
Ishmael Zamora, WR, Baylor
Two talented players who went undrafted due to character. Both fill a need and have a realistic shot of making the roster.
Corey Clemont, RB, Wisconsin
Tyler Orlosky, C, WVU
Orlosky was regarded as the #3 center in the entire class. Clemont has been mocked as high as the 4th round.
Artavis Scott, WR, Clemson
Cole Hikutini, TE, Louisville
Erik Magnuson, OT, Michigan
Lorenzo Jerome, S, St. Francis
Cole Hikutini was my #2 UDFA. He lands in a great spot to suceed. Magnuson played in a pro-style offense and held his own throughout the season at LT.
Tyrone Swoops, TE, Texas
Richie Brown, LB, Mississippi State
Antony Auclair, TE, Laval
Auclair has ideal TE2 size. He is a massive, blocking tight end.
Fish Smithson, S, Kansas
Kyle Kalis, OG, Michigan
Fish Smithson has been mocked as high as the 5th round. Smithson was the clear best player on a bad defense. Smithson lands in a great spot to succeed as he can send Cravens back to LB or replace Swearinger in a year when his contract is up.
|Albert Mattheis||Fish Smithson is the truth, gonna be a starter. Pats went hard to get Langi but he should be pretty good.|
