Miguel Maysonet, RB, Philadelphia Eagles
There are few guys that tore up the competition against smaller programs quite like Maysonet did over his career at Stony Brook. While a lot of people were thinking that he would be a pick in the seventh round, he was undrafted. Luckily for him, he is now a member of the Philadelphia Eagles.
Mayonset put up big numbers during his entire college career. In his senior season, he ran for 1,964 yards and 21 touchdowns while averaging 7.4 yards per carry. His decisive running style and excellent vision helped him gain positive yards on nearly every single play. Despite his smaller size and lack of breakaway speed, Maysonet continued to keep his legs moving and never hesitated at the line of scrimmage.
The Eagles are a great spot for Maysonet. Learning under both LeSean McCoy and Bryce Brown will help him improve into an even better runner. Maysonet has a lot of things you look for in a running back, and a couple of years behind bigger names could make him a premier back in the next couple of seasons.
Matt Scott, QB, Jacksonville Jaguars
With only two quarterbacks on the roster, the Jaguars needed some depth at the position. Scott provides that, and could eventually become the starter in the near future.
After Nick Foles left, Scott took over the starting role for the Arizona Wildcats. He has a solid frame for a QB and a strong arm. He can make big plays on deep throws thanks to that arm and a pretty nice, quick release.
Mobility is the big thing for Scott. He ran the read-option with some frequency at Arizona, and did a lot with his feet. His mobility also helped him when escaping the pocket, and he showed he could make big throws when rolling out to either side.
With some time to improve, Scott could potentially take the starting job from Blaine Gabbert. There’s a lot to like about Scott, and he gives the offense an extra dimension with the read-option.
Da'Rick Rogers, WR, Buffalo Bills
A number of people were surprised that no one pulled the trigger on Rogers during the draft, but he is now another weapon for either Kevin Kolb or EJ Manuel once the season begins.
At 6'2'', Rogers is a physical receiver that can handle press coverage. He makes great catches and can get yards after the catch by going through defenders.
The big concern with Rogers is his attitude. He was kicked off Tennessee and then transferred to Tennessee Tech. His attitude on the field can sometimes be an issue as well.
Regardless of the attitude problems, Rogers joins Robert Woods and Marquise Goodwin to give the Bills plenty of weapons on offense. As long as Rogers can keep his attitude in check, the Bills got an absolute steal.
