Earlier this offseason, we discussed some of the more alluring undrafted free agents signed by the St. Louis Rams following the draft, but with OTAs nearing a conclusion, which of these long-shot youngsters are making a splash?
Sure, discussing irrelevant, no-name prospects is not always as interesting as covering the well-known blockbuster names. However, if you’re a fan of HBO’s Hard Knocks, then you know perfectly well that intense preseason battles between the bottom-tier hopefuls are one of the more entertaining aspects of training camp.
Also, while the majority of undrafted players are non-factors and will fall short of their dreams, the cream always rises to the top in the NFL.
These players have been given a shot for a reason. They’re irrelevant today, but they all possess special talents that could propel them into stardom at some point.
It’s unlikely any of these players will experience a high level of success, but we’ve seen it before with current and past stars such as Danny Amendola, Kurt Warner, Antonio Gates and Arian Foster.
So, based on media buzz and chatter coming out of OTAs, which undrafted Rams players are most likely to make a real impact?
