Undrafted NFL Free Agents 2013: Tracking Top 50 Best Remaining Players

0 of 50

    There are more than 1,700 roster spots in the NFL and a sizable portion of those remain unfilled. With only 254 selections in the 2013 draft and hundreds of draft-eligible prospects that failed to find a home in the draft's seven rounds, there's still some quality NFL talent available on the free-agent market.

    Players who aren't selected in the draft are eligible to be signed just as any other free agent (at least those of the unrestricted variety). For teams that targeted a player expected to go undrafted—or those that just have to add depth—signing undrafted free agents is an inexpensive option with very little risk.

    It's difficult to find impact players in the pool of undrafted free agents, but it's not impossible. Kurt Warner, Arian Foster, Antonio Gates, Warren Moon, James Harrison and Jeff Saturday are among hundreds of such players who defied the odds to become standout NFL producers, despite being passed over multiple times by all 32 NFL teams.

    Will there be undrafted stars to come out of this draft class?

    Time will give us the answer to that question. If history is any indication, that's not only likely but probable.

    Let's take a look at the top 50 players who went undrafted in 2013. Some of these players have the potential to be impressive pros. All they need is a chance to prove it.


Ray Graham

1 of 50

    UPDATE: Saturday, April 27, at 8:22 a.m. ET by Dan Talintyre

    Ray Graham has signed with the Houston Texans, according to CSNChicago's JJ Stankevitz

    ---End of update---

     

    School Pittsburgh 
    Position Running Back
    Height 5'9"
    Weight 199 pounds
    Key Stats 1,042 yards and 11 touchdowns in 2012

     

    Graham could have been a mid-round selection this year had he not suffered a hamstring injury at the end of the 2012 year and failed to impress at the combine. He isn't incredibly big or fast, but he has the versatility and vision to surprise a lot of people in the NFL.

Jordan Rodgers

2 of 50

    UPDATE: Saturday, April 27, at 8:24 p.m. ET by Dan Talintyre

    Jacksonville has signed Vanderbilt QB Jordan Rodgers, according to The Tennessean's Jim Wyatt.

    ---End of update---

     

    School Vanderbilt
    Position Quarterback
    Height 6'1"
    Weight 212 pounds
    Key Stats 2,539 yards, 15 touchdowns and five interceptions in 2012

     

    Unfortunately for Rodgers, the comparisons to his brother Aaron Rodgers are few and far between. The Vanderbilt product doesn't have the frame or big arm to live up to his brother's NFL success, but he does have the football intelligence and athleticism to develop into a quality backup in the pros. 

Lawrence Okoye

3 of 50

    UPDATE: Saturday, April 27, at 8:26 p.m. ET by Dan Talintyre

    According to a tweet on Lawrence Okoye's Twitter page, the gold medal winner in discuss at the 2011 European Athletics U23 Championships and current defensive end has signed with the San Francisco 49ers.

    ---End of update---

     

    School N/A
    Position Defensive End
    Height 6'6"
    Weight 300 pounds
    Key Stats Gold medal discuss thrower and 2012 Olympic Games participant

     

    Okoye isn't a football player, but the British discuss thrower is an extremely impressive athlete with the high-upside factor that NFL teams tend to love. He's certainly a big project, but there may be a team willing to gamble on his potential in the coming months.

Jake Stoneburner

4 of 50

    UPDATE: Saturday, April 27, at 8:29 p.m. ET by Dan Talintyre

    Jake Stoneburner has signed with the Green Bay Packers, according to a post on his Twitter account.

    ---End of update---


    School Ohio State 
    Position Tight End
    Height 6'4"
    Weight 252 pounds
    Key Stats 16 catches, 269 yards and four touchdowns in 2012

     

    Stoneburner is a little stout for the tight end position, and he doesn't impress with his speed or quickness. However, the Ohio State product is a hard-nosed football player who has terrific hands and a lot of football intelligence. It won't be a surprise for Stoneburner to be one of the first undrafted free agents signed this offseason.

Michael Clay

5 of 50

    UPDATE: Saturday, April 27, at 8:31 a.m. ET by Dan Talintyre

    Michael Clay posted via his Twitter account that he will be joining the Miami Dolphins this season.

    ---End of update---


    School Oregon
    Position Outside Linebacker 
    Height 6'0"
    Weight 230 pounds
    Key Stats 203 total tackles in final two years at Oregon

     

    Oregon sent a lot of talent to the NFL this year. Dion Jordan and Kiko Alonso were early selections, but Clay is another intriguing linebacker who could join an NFL team as an undrafted free agent. He doesn't have a big frame for the position, though, and a special-teams spot may be his ceiling.

Joseph Fauria

6 of 50

    UPDATE: Saturday, April 27, at 8:35 p.m. ET by Dan Talintyre

    The Detroit Lions have confirmed that they have signed tight end Joseph Fauria from UCLA.

    ---End of update---


    School UCLA
    Position Tight End
    Height 6'7"
    Weight 259 pounds
    Key Stats 46 catches, 637 yards and 12 touchdowns in 2012

     

    This year's tight end class was sneakily deep. Because of the unheralded talent available, quality tight ends like Fauria fell out of the draft.

    The UCLA product has a lot of the traits NFL teams look for in a versatile tight end, though. He has tremendous size and put up excellent numbers during the 2012 season.

Daxton Swanson

7 of 50

    UPDATE: Saturday, April 27, at 8:37 p.m. ET by Dan Talintyre

    Daxton Swanson is signing with the Indianapolis Colts, according to a post on his own Twitter account.

    ---End of update---


    School Sam Houston State 
    Position Cornerback
    Height 5'10"
    Weight 186 pounds
    Key Stats 14 interceptions in 40 career games

     

    Nothing about Swanson wows, but he has adequate size, speed and quickness to warrant a closer look to potentially add some depth and play on special teams. He recorded 14 interceptions in his four-year college football career, and that display of ball skills should help him stand out from a talented crowd of undrafted free-agent cornerbacks.

Robert Lester

8 of 50

    UPDATE: Saturday, April 27, at 8:38 p.m. ET by Dan Talintyre

    The Tuscaloosa News' Cecil Hurt reports that the Carolina Panthers have signed safety Robert Lester.

    ---End of update---


    School Alabama
    Position Safety
    Height 6'1"
    Weight 220 pounds
    Key Stats 48 tackles and four interceptions in 2012

     

    Lester has a big frame for a safety, but his size also limits his quickness and flexibility. Given his undrafted status, a team may choose to take a flyer on Lester to develop him into an in-the-box safety or linebacker.

T.J. Moe

9 of 50

    UPDATE: Saturday, April 27, at 8:40 p.m. ET by Dan Talintyre

    T.J. Moe has agreed to terms with the New England Patriots, according to agent Matt Brei on Twitter.

    ---End of update---

     

    School Missouri
    Position Wide Receiver
    Height 5'11"
    Weight 204 pounds
    Key Stats 40 receptions, 399 yards and one touchdown in 2012

     

    Moe isn't impressive in any one area, but his crisp route-running ability and strong hands make him an interesting prospect for a team in need of a developmental slot receiver in the mold of Austin Collie. He'll need to land in the right situation to have a chance at being productive in the NFL, however.

George Winn

10 of 50

    UPDATE: Saturday, April 27, at 8:42 p.m. ET by Dan Talintyre

    RotoExperts.com's Jayson Braddock reports that the Houston Texans have signed George Winn.

    ---End of update---


    School Cincinnati
    Position Running Back
    Height 5'10"
    Weight 218 pounds
    Key Stats 1,334 yards (5.5 per carry) and 13 touchdowns in 2012

     

    Winn has the frame and college production to garner some attention from teams hoping to find a hidden gem on the free-agent market. Given the recent trend of late-round picks and undrafted free-agent running backs finding success in the NFL, expect a number of talented backs like Winn to receive quite a few phone calls in the coming days.

Collin Klein

11 of 50

    UPDATE: Saturday, April 27, at 9:21 p.m. ET by Dan Talintyre

    Collin Klein tweets he has signed with the Houston Texans.

    ---End of update---


    School Kansas State
    Position Quarterback
    Height 6'5"
    Weight 226 pounds
    Key Stats 3,561 total yards and 39 total touchdowns in 2012, Heisman Trophy finalist

     

    One of the most interesting stories in this year's draft, Heisman finalist Collin Klein has an uphill battle to play quarterback in the NFL. As was the case with Tim Tebow coming out of Florida, Klein's throwing motion and general lack of accuracy will keep teams from giving him a look under center.

    However, Klein is an exceptional athlete with good speed for his size. Should he be willing to switch positions in the pros, there's likely going to be a team willing to take a flyer on him as a tight end or in a utility backup role.

Alvin Bailey

12 of 50

    UPDATE: Saturday, April 27, at 11:23 p.m. ET by Dan Talintyre

    Everett Herald writer John Boyle states that Alvin Bailey signed with the Seattle Seahawks.

    ---End of update---

     

    School Arkansas
    Position Guard
    Height 6'5"
    Weight 312 pounds
    Key Stats Started 39 games at guard in final three years at Arkansas

     

    Bailey has some impressive physical tools, but he lacks consistent technique to be an immediate starter in the NFL. Despite his size and ability to play either guard position, he'll need a lot of polish if he is to have a successful professional career.

Bradley McDougald

13 of 50

    UPDATE: Saturday, April 27, at 8:57 p.m. ET by Dan Talintyre

    Rustin Dodd of the The Kansas City Star reports that Bradley McDougald has signed with the Kansas City Chiefs.

    ---End of update---


    School Kansas
    Position Safety
    Height 6'0"
    Weight 215 pounds
    Key Stats 92 tackles, three interceptions and one sack in 2012

     

    McDougald is another safety in this class lacking elite speed (4.74 40-yard dash). He has ideal size for the strong safety position, however, and his production in 2012 can't be overlooked. He projects well as a special-teams performer and potential rotational in-the-box safety.

Zach Boren

14 of 50

    UPDATE: Saturday, April 27, at 9:17 p.m. ET by Dan Talintyre

    10TV sports anchor David Wilkinson reports that Zach Boren has signed with the Houston Texans.

    ---End of update---

     

    School Ohio State
    Position Fullback
    Height 5'11"
    Weight 238 pounds
    Key Stats Played both linebacker and fullback in 2012, recorded 50 tackles and two touchdowns

     

    Boren transitioned from fullback to linebacker with the Buckeyes last season and excelled at the position. His versatility is also a curse, though. The fullback position has little importance in the modern NFL, and Boren is still somewhat raw for an NFL linebacker. He has the toughness and football intelligence to be worth a developmental role in the NFL, however.

Wes Horton

15 of 50

    UPDATE: Saturday, April 27, at 9:42 p.m. ET by Dan Talintyre

    DraftInsider.net's Tony Pauline reports that the Carolina Panthers have signed Wes Horton.

    ---End of update---

     

    School USC
    Position Defensive End
    Height 6'5"
    Weight 255 pounds
    Key Stats 43 tackles (6.5 for loss) and 5.5 sacks in 2012

     

    A prototypical hybrid outside linebacker-defensive end, Horton has the size and athleticism to play either position in the NFL. The USC product went undrafted for a reason, though.

    Horton has very raw technique and lacks quickness and explosiveness off the snap. But if a team is willing to coach him up in his formative years, Horton could be a productive player in the NFL.

Rod Sweeting

16 of 50

    UPDATE: Saturday, April 27, at 10:06 p.m. ET by Dan Talintyre

    Rod Sweeting has signed a deal with the New Orleans Saints, according to the Georgia Tech Sports Twitter account.

    ---End of update---


    School Georgia Tech
    Position Cornerback
    Height 5'11"
    Weight 189 pounds
    Key Stats 58 tackles (six for loss), one interception and seven pass breakups in 2012

     

    Aggressiveness and physicality are Sweeting's best traits. He does have good speed (4.42-second 40-yard dash) and adequate flexibility and quickness, but the Georgia Tech product will probably never be a top-end man-cover corner. 

Matt Stankiewitch

17 of 50

    UPDATE: Saturday, April 27, at 9:46 p.m. ET by Dan Talintyre

    Matt Stankiewitch reveals on Twitter that he has signed with the New England Patriots.

    ---End of update---


    School Penn State
    Position Center
    Height 6'3"
    Weight 302 pounds
    Key Stats Started all 13 games in 2011

     

    Stankiewitch isn't all that athletic and lacks ideal height and strength for the center position in the NFL. That said, the Penn State product has the intelligence and high motor to eventually earn a role on an NFL squad. The numbers game may ultimately prompt a team to take a flyer on him this offseason.

Abry Jones

18 of 50

    UPDATE: Saturday, April 27, 9:37 p.m. ET by Dan Talintyre

    Abry Jones has signed with the Jacksonville Jaguars, according to his personal Twitter account.

    ---End of update---


    School Georgia
    Position Defensive End
    Height 6'3"
    Weight 313 pounds
    Key Stats 48 tackles (seven for loss) and four sacks in 2011

     

    Jones never lived up to his potential at Georgia, suffering an injury in 2011 that may have limited his productivity in 2012. He has the frame to find a fit as a rotational linemen in either a 3-4 or 4-3, though, and has the upside to garner some post-draft attention.

Stefphon Jefferson

19 of 50

    UPDATE: Saturday, April 27, 9:47 p.m. ET by Dan Talintyre

    The Tennesean's Jim Wyatt reports that Stefphon Jefferson has signed with the Tennessee Titans.

    ---End of update---

     

    School Nevada
    Position Running Back
    Height 5'10"
    Weight 213 pounds
    Key Stats 1,883 yards (5.02 per carry) and 24 rushing touchdowns in 2012

     

    A patient running style and good vision highlight Jefferson's NFL potential. He isn't an explosive athlete or electrifying runner, but there's something to be said for his production at Nevada. 

    College stats don't always project pro potential, but Jefferson's five yards per carry and 24 touchdowns deserve a closer look from an NFL team.

Miguel Maysonet

20 of 50

    UPDATE: Saturday, April 27, at 9:50 p.m. ET by Dan Talintyre

    Miguel Maysonet has signed with the Philadelphia Eagles, according to ESPN's Rich Cimini.

    ---End of update---

     

    School Stony Brook
    Position Running Back
    Height 5'9"
    Weight 209 pounds
    Key Stats 1,964 yards and 21 rushing touchdowns in 2012

     

    Everything about Maysonet suggests a potential spot on an NFL roster. While he doesn't excel in any area, he's a durable, physical and productive runner who matches the mold of some of the late-round running backs who have experienced NFL success in recent years.

Alec Lemon

21 of 50

    UPDATE: Saturday, April 27, at 10:46 p.m. ET by Dan Talintyre

    Alec Lemon has signed with the Houston Texans, according to SportsRadio 610's Paul Gallant.

    ---End of update---


    School Syracuse
    Position Wide Receiver
    Height 6'2"
    Weight 202 pounds
    Key Stats 73 catches, 1,074 yards and seven touchdowns in 2012

     

    It's difficult being an average player in a deep receiver draft class. Lemon went undrafted because he doesn't stand out in any area. Despite adequate size, speed and technical skills, the Syracuse product had a hard time separating himself from the crowd of some extremely fast and big pass-catchers in this class.

Mark Harrison

22 of 50

    UPDATE: Saturday, April 27, at 9:50 p.m. ET by Dan Talintyre

    Mark Harrison has signed with the Chicago Bears, according to SNY Rutgers.

    ---End of update---

     

    School Rutgers
    Position Wide Receiver
    Height 6'3"
    Weight 231 pounds
    Key Stats 44 receptions, 583 yards and six touchdowns in 2012

     

    Wide receiver prospects with Harrison's mix of size and speed aren't uncommon, and the Arkansas pass-catcher shares some of the same traits of many of those players. He's a physically gifted player, but he lacks quality route-running skills and suffers from inconsistency all too regularly. Still, there's no doubt a team will gamble on his upside and physical attributes.

Aaron Hester

23 of 50

    UPDATE: Saturday, April 27, at 10:41 p.m. ET by Dan Talintyre

    NFL player agent Sam Renaut has announced that Aaron Hester is joining the Denver Broncos.

    ---End of update---


    School UCLA
    Position Cornerback
    Height 6'2"
    Weight 198 pounds
    Key Stats 44 tackles, seven pass breakups and one interception in 2012

     

    Hester is a lot faster in pads than his 40 time would suggest (4.62). He's also a fluid athlete with good hips and the quickness to stick with most receivers.

    That said, the UCLA product doesn't have great technique and has never been overly productive as a playmaking corner. He'll need to improve his ball skills and refine his technique, but there's no reason Hester can't be a solid NFL cornerback.

Will Compton

24 of 50

    UPDATE: Saturday, April 27, at 9:24 p.m. ET by Dan Talintyre

    Will Compton announces on Twitter that he has signed a deal with the Washington Redskins.

    ---End of update---


    School Nebraska
    Position Inside Linebacker
    Height 6'1"
    Weight 230 pounds
    Key Stats 110 tackles, three sacks and one interception in 2012

     

    Teams looking for a gritty special-teams standout won't have to look any further than Compton. He has enough athleticism to play a backup inside linebacker role in the NFL, but there's certainly a spot for the high-motor linebacker on special teams in the pros.

Ray Ray Armstrong

25 of 50

    UPDATE: Saturday, April 27, at 11:22 p.m. ET by Dan Talintyre

    According to Miami associate director of athletics for communications and marketing Chris Freet, Ray Ray Armstrong has posted a photo via his Instagram account talking about a new future with the St. Louis Rams.

    ---End of update---


    School Miami
    Position Safety
    Height 6'3"
    Weight 216 pounds
    Key Stats Four interceptions and five pass breakups in 2010 and 2011

     

    Armstrong was suspended for an infraction involving a booster and missed the 2012 season, moving him off some teams' draft boards.

    Still, there aren't a lot of safeties with the Miami product's mix of size and speed. An incredibly lengthy safety with the bulk to match, Armstrong could certainly find a home on an NFL team in need of a specialized safety who can cover some of the taller, more athletic tight ends in the league.

Colby Cameron

26 of 50

    UPDATE: Saturday, April 27, at 10:51 p.m. ET by Dan Talintyre

    The Ventura County Star reports that Colby Cameron has signed with the Carolina Panthers.

    ---End of update---


    School Louisiana Tech
    Position Quarterback
    Height 6'2"
    Weight 212 pounds
    Key Stats 4,147 passing yards, 31 touchdowns and five interceptions in 2012

     

    That Cameron went undrafted isn't a huge surprise, but it also wouldn't have been a shock to see a team take a flyer on the small-school signal-caller. His 2012 production was tremendous and he has the size and arm to be an NFL quarterback.

    Many teams look for practice-squad quarterbacks after the completion of the draft. Expect Cameron to be one of the first undrafted free agents signed this week.

Braden Brown

27 of 50

    UPDATE: Saturday, April 27, at 9:59 p.m. ET by Dan Talintyre

    Braden Brown has signed with the St. Louis Rams, according to his personal Twitter page.

    ---End of update---


    School BYU
    Position Offensive Tackle
    Height 6'6"
    Weight 310 pounds
    Key Stats Started all 13 games in 2012

     

    Brown earned an invite to the Shrine Game this year—an honor that typically helps gain the favor of NFL scouts. Despite going undrafted, NFL teams are always looking for hardworking offensive linemen who can provide depth and play multiple positions. Brown fits the bill.

Onterio McCalebb

28 of 50

    UPDATE: Saturday, April 27, at 10:00 p.m. ET by Dan Talintyre

    Onterio McCalebb has signed with the Cincinnati Bengals, according to Rivals.com's Justin Hokason.

    ---End of update---

     

    School Auburn
    Position Running Back
    Height 5'10"
    Weight 168
    Key Stats 570 yards (6.1 yards per carry) and six touchdowns in 2012

     

    Shifty change-of-pace backs are becoming more and more prevalent in the modern NFL, but that doesn't mean teams are always willing to gamble on a player who doesn't top the 170-pound mark. Still, McCalebb is quick and speedy, and if he can add some bulk, it shouldn't be a surprise to see him join a team in training camp.

MarQueis Gray

29 of 50

    UPDATE: Saturday, April 27, at 10:03 p.m. ET by Dan Talintyre

    Quarterback MacQueis Gray has signed with the San Francisco 49ers, according to his Twitter account.

    ---End of update---


    School Minnesota
    Position Quarterback
    Height 6'3"
    Weight 240 pounds
    Key Stats 12 receptions, 59 pass attempts and 72 carries in 2012

     

    We've seen a lot of athletic college quarterbacks make the transition to other positions in the NFL. Gray may be another to do so as an undrafted free agent.

    The Minnesota product converted to quarterback after starting his college career at wide receiver, and the latter may be where he ends up if he gets a chance in the NFL. He certainly has the size and athleticism to garner a closer look.

Anthony McCloud

30 of 50
    School Florida State
    Position Defensive Tackle
    Height 6'2"
    Weight 305 pounds
    Key Stats 49 tackles (six for loss) and three sacks in last two seasons

     

    Despite being a little lighter than the typical NFL nose tackle, McCloud is a stout defender with the physicality and wide base to play the position in the pros. His lack of elite college production and bulk were probably what pushed the tackle out of the draft, but some additional evaluation may ultimately lead to a training camp signing for McCloud,

Dalton Freeman

31 of 50

    UPDATE: Saturday, April 27, at 10:08 p.m. ET by Dan Talintyre

    Jets beat writer Jake Steinberg reports that New York has signed Dalton Freeman.

    ---End of update---


    School Clemson
    Position Center
    Height 6'5"
    Weight 291 pounds
    Key Stats 36 career starts on the offensive line

     

    Freeman was a Rimington finalist as one of the nation's best centers, but he lacks the bulk and strength to be an immediate starter in the NFL. If the Clemson center can add some bulk in an NFL weight room, he could prove to be a steal as an undrafted free agent.

Cierre Wood

32 of 50

    UPDATE: Saturday, April 27, at 10:11 p.m. ET by Dan Talintyre

    Cierre Wood has signed with the Houston Texans, per his Twitter account.

    ---End of update---


    School Notre Dame
    Position Running Back
    Height 511"
    Weight 213 pounds
    Key Stats 742 rushing yards (6.5 per carry) and four touchdowns in 2012

     

    Good size and vision highlight Wood's best qualities, but there's nothing truly special about him as a runner. Then again, the same has been said for a number of quality NFL running backs selected late in the draft or added as an undrafted free agent. Wood could be next in line for a shot at a backup role.

Jasper Collins

33 of 50

    UPDATE: Saturday, April 27, at 10:13 p.m. ET by Dan Talintyre

    The Miami Dolphins have signed Jasper Collins, according to a post on his Twitter account.

    ---End of update---


    School Mount Union
    Position Wide Receiver
    Height 5'10"
    Weight 180 pounds
    Key Stats 1,694 receiving yards and 22 touchdowns in 2012

     

    Mount Union receivers inexplicably produce year in and year out. Despite his small-school background, Collins could follow Pierre Garcon as a potential NFL receiver and high-upside pass-catcher with good speed and quickness.

Keith Pough

34 of 50

    UPDATE: Saturday, April 27, at 10:14 p.m. ET by Dan Talintyre

    According to his Twitter account, Keith Pough has signed with the Buffalo Bills.

    ---End of update---


    School Howard
    Position Inside Linebacker
    Height 6'2"
    Weight 239
    Key Stats 2012 MEAC Defensive Player of the Year, 72 career tackles for loss

     

    Pough was a player some believed would be a third- or fourth-round pick in this draft class, but he inexplicably slid down the board and out of the draft. Despite the apparent lack of interest of NFL teams, Pough is likely to get a training camp invite. With size, aggressiveness and tremendous production at Howard, Pough could be a candidate to play either outside or inside linebacker in the NFL.

Etienne Sabino

35 of 50

    UPDATE: Saturday, April 27, at 10:16 p.m. ET by Dan Talintyre

    Linebacker Etienne Sabino has joined the New York Giants, he announced on Twitter.

    ---End of update---


    School Ohio State
    Position Outside Linebacker
    Height 6'2"
    Weight 247 pounds
    Key Stats 45 tackles (3.5 for loss), two sacks and an interception in 2012

     

    Injuries marred Sabino's 2012 campaign, though Ohio State's defensive leader certainly made an impact last season. A 4.75-second 40-yard dash at the combine probably did the most damage to his draft stock, but Sabino has the size NFL teams covet in edge-rushing linebackers.

Kwame Geathers

    UPDATE: Saturday, April 27, at 10:17 p.m. ET by Dan Talintyre

    Per San Diego Chargers beat writer Michael Gehlken, Kwame Geathers has joined the Chargers.

    School Georgia
    Position Defensive Tackle
    Height 6'6"
    Weight 342 pounds
    Key Stats 40 tackles (five for loss) and one sack in 2012

     

    There aren't many major-program defensive tackles with Geathers' size. He was extremely inconsistent at times in college, but you can't teach size. The 342-pound tackle can at least be a rotational run-stuffer for a team in need of some beef on its defensive line.

Chase Thomas

    UPDATE: Saturday, April 27, at 10:19 p.m. ET by Dan Talintyre

    Chase Thomas tweets he has agreed to terms with the New Orleans Saints.

    ---End of update---


    School Stanford
    Position Outside Linebacker
    Height 6'3"
    Weight 244 pounds
    Key Stats 71 tackles (15.5 for loss), 7.5 sacks and one interceptions in 2012

     

    There's virtually no chance Thomas doesn't get a training camp invite. He has one of the highest motors in this entire draft class.

    Not only is Thomas fun to watch, but he was also an extremely productive player at Stanford. His ability to shed blocks at 244 pounds and get into the backfield is a coveted trait for teams in search of a cheap pass-rushing option with some upside.

Tyler Bray

38 of 50

    UPDATE: Saturday, April 27, at 10:47 p.m. ET by Dan Talintyre

    ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Tyler Bray has signed with the Kansas City Chiefs.

    ---End of update---


    School Tennessee
    Position Quarterback
    Height 6'6"
    Weight 232 pounds
    Key Stats 3,612 yards, 34 touchdowns and 12 interceptions in 2012

     

    Bray has perhaps the best arm in this entire class, but concerns about what's between his ears were enough to keep him from being drafted. The signal-caller has to mature if he is to ever play quarterback in the NFL.

    That said, undrafted free agents often give teams a chance to take a cheap flyer on a developmental pro level, a team is going to get a huge steal in free agency.

Da'Rick Rogers

39 of 50

    UPDATE: Saturday, April 27, at 10:23 p.m. ET by Dan Talintyre

    Da'Rick Rogers has joined the Buffalo Bills, according to USA Today and his personal Twitter account.

    ---End of update---


    School Tennessee Tech
    Position Wide Receiver
    Height 6'3"
    Weight 217 pounds
    Key Stats 61 receptions, 893 yards and 10 touchdowns in 2012

     

    Rogers' name was mentioned throughout the final four rounds of the draft. But like fellow small-school receiver Aaron Mellette, teams chose to pass on Rogers in favor of more high-profile pass-catchers.

    He played 2011 in a crowded Tennessee receiving corp and led the SEC in receiving. However, multiple failed drug tests led to his suspension and eventual transfer to Tennessee Tech. His upside is tremendous.

Kevin Reddick

40 of 50

    UPDATE: Saturday, April 27, at 10:25 p.m. ET by Dan Talintyre

    According to UNC coach Larry Fedora, the New Orleans Saints have signed Kevin Reddick.

    ---End of update---


    School North Carolina
    Position Inside Linebacker
    Height 6'2"
    Weight 243 pounds
    Key Stats 85 tackles (18.5 for loss) and 6.5 sacks in 2012

     

    Schematic limitations are presumably the biggest reason for Reddick's slide. He isn't the most athletic linebacker and lacks elite speed to play inside in a 4-3.

    The North Carolina product has some pop, though, and he could find a home with a 3-4 defense as a run-stuffer and situational pass-rusher.

Nickell Robey

41 of 50

    UPDATE: Saturday, April 27, at 10:27 p.m. ET by Dan Talintyre

    Nickell Robey has joined the Buffalo Bills, per Orange County Register's Rich Hammond.

    ---End of update---


    School USC
    Position Cornerback
    Height 5'7"
    Weight 169 pounds
    Key Stats 52 tackles and an interceptions in 2012

     

    USC coach Lane Kiffin has previously made comparisons to Troy Polamalu in discussion of Robey (per the Orange County Register), but he's probably the only coach to see it. At 5'7" and 169 pounds, the cornerback just doesn't have the size to be a big-time NFL defensive back. The same was said of Kansas City Chief Javier Arenas in 2010, though, and a team may be willing to take the same kind of gamble on Robey after he fell out of the draft.

Xavier Nixon

42 of 50

    UPDATE: Saturday, April 27, at 10:30 p.m. ET by Dan Talintyre

    The Palm Beach Post's Jason Lieser reports that Xavier Nixon has signed with the Washington Redskins.

    ---End of update---


    School Florida
    Position Offesnive tackle
    Height 6'6"
    Weight 321 pounds
    Key Stats Started 33 games on Florida's offensive line

     

    Nixon has a ton of potential but it has remained largely untapped to this point. Inconsistency has plagued the big-bodied offensive tackle in his career at Florida. Unfortunately, inconsistency is a trait that doesn't project well to a successful NFL career no matter how much talent accompanies it.

Marcus Cromartie

43 of 50

    UPDATE: Saturday, April 27, at 10:31 p.m. ET by Dan Talintyre

    Marcus Cromartie has joined the San Diego Chargers, he tweeted.

    ---End of update---


    School Wisconsin
    Position Cornerback
    Height 6'0"
    Weight 195 pounds
    Key Stats 62 tackles, 12 pass break-ups and one interception in 2012

     

    The cornerback crop was raided frivolously this year and there aren't a ton of quality pass-defenders still available. Cromartie is one of the best available, however.

    The Wisconsin product did break up 12 passes last season and he has prototypical NFL cornerback size. If a team is looking to take a flyer on some added depth at the position, Cromartie wouldn't be a bad choice.

Matt Scott

44 of 50

    UPDATE: Saturday, April 27, at 10:32 p.m. ET by Dan Talintyre

    According to his personal Twitter account, Matt Scott is joining the Jacksonville Jaguars.

    ---End of update---


    School Arizona
    Position Quarterback
    Height 6'2"
    Weight 213 pounds
    Key Stats 3,620 passing yards, 27 touchdowns and 14 interceptions in 2012

     

    Arizona's Matt Scott is one of the more intriguing quarterbacks to go undrafted this year. He's a good passer who put up solid numbers for the Wildcats, but his best asset is his athleticism.

    There aren't many quarterbacks in this draft with the same mix of throwing ability and mobility. Expect him to be one of the first signal-callers signed from this class.

Lerentee McCray

45 of 50

    UPDATE: Saturday, April 27, at 10:33 p.m. ET by Dan Talintyre

    The Baltimore Sun's Aaron Wilson reports that Lerentee McCray is joining the Denver Broncos.

    ---End of update---


    School Florida
    Position Outside Linebacker
    Height 6'2"
    Weight 250 pounds
    Key Stats 25 tackles (4.5 for loss) and three sacks in 2012

     

    Injuries have hampered McCray's football career and resulted in the linebacker going undrafted. Medical red flags often impact a player's draft stock more than anything else, and it remains to be seen if a team will overlook those issues to offer him a free-agent contract.

Uzoma Nwachukwu

46 of 50

    UPDATE: Saturday, April 27, at 10:35 p.m. ET by Dan Talintyre

    The Houston Texans have signed Uzoma Nwachukwu, according to a post on his personal Twitter page.

    ---End of update---


    School Texas A&M
    Position Wide Receiver
    Height 5'11"
    Weight 198 pounds
    Key Stats 26 receptions, 485 yards and seven touchdowns in 2012

     

    Nwachukwu didn't put up eye-popping numbers last season, but he's an electric player with the ball in his hands. At the very least, look for a team to take a chance on him in training camp as a potential kick returner and depth-adding wideout.

Ryan Otten

47 of 50

    UPDATE: Saturday, April 27, at 10:37 p.m. ET by Dan Talintyre

    Ryan Otten is going to the Jacksonville Jaguars, according to the Sacramento Bee's Matt Barrows.

    ---End of update---


    School San Jose State
    Position Tight End
    Height 6'5"
    Weight 230 pounds
    Key Stats 47 receptions, 742 yards and four touchdowns in 2012

     

    Otten is somewhat of a rumbling tight end who lacks top-end speed and quickness, but he makes up for it with his blocking. Unfortunately the NFL is becoming more and more focused on pass-catching tight ends, and Otten's blocking aptitude may not be enough to earn him a spot on an NFL roster.

Tony Jefferson

48 of 50

    UPDATE: Saturday, April 27, at 10:38 p.m. ET by Dan Talintyre

    Tony Jefferson has signed with the Arizona Cardinals, according to his personal Twitter account.

    ---End of update---


    School Oklahoma
    Position Safety
    Height 5'11"
    Weight 213 pounds
    Key Stats 119 tackles and two interceptions in 2012

     

    Jefferson has ideal size for the safety position in the NFL, and his 2012 production was tremendous. Why he went undrafted is a bit of a mystery at this point. You can count on an NFL team taking a flyer on him prior to training camp.

Travis Johnson

49 of 50
    School San Jose State
    Position Outside Linebacker
    Height 6'2"
    Weight 240 pounds
    Key Stats 65 tackles (21.5 for loss) and 13 sacks in 2012

     

    Johnson's college production was great, but statistics alone don't make catch scouts and general managers' eyes. That said, they may be enough to warrant a training camp invite given his good size and high motor.

Brad Wing

    UPDATE: Saturday, April 27, at 10:40 p.m. ET by Dan Talintyre

    Brad Wing announces via Twitter that he has signed with the Philadelphia Eagles.

    School LSU
    Position Punter
    Height 6'2"
    Weight 205 pounds
    Key Stats 44.8 yards punting average on 59 punts

     

    Yes, there's a punter on the list. 

    The most unheralded players in football don't get a lot of love in the draft (though the 2013 edition wasn't without a couple punter selections), but Wing will almost certainly get a contract in the coming days.
