Tony Jefferson (No. 36)
Undrafted free-agent list (courtesy of NFL.com):
Clemson WR Juron Brown; Arizona WR Dan Buckner; Colorado State OT Joe Caprioglio; Michigan LB Kenny Demens; Cincinnati DE Dan Giordano; Oklahoma S Javon Harris; California CB Josh Hill; Wyoming LB Korey James; Oklahoma S Tony Jefferson; Alabama A&M OT Jamaal Johnson-Webb; Louisiana Lafayette WR Javone Lawson; California OT Matt Summers-Gavin; Tennessee CB/S Prentiss Waggner; San Jose State DB Ronnie Yell; Marist WR Michael Rios; Florida A&M NT Padric Scott; Northwest Missouri State WR Tyler Shaw
Analysis: Two of these players have stood out early on and could end up on the 53-man roster come September. They are Florida A&M nose tackle Padric Scott and Oklahoma safety Tony Jefferson.
Jefferson (5’11”, 213) is a solid-bodied, athletic safety who was seen on film flying around and making plays in the defensive backfield. He recorded 258 total tackles in three seasons in Norman with 18.0 for a loss, 7.0 sacks, eight interceptions and 21 passes defended.
Then, while watching Jefferson tape, I came across a big nose tackle wreaking havoc in Oklahoma’s offensive backfield. It was Scott, from little old Florida A&M. He now has a chance to make the roster along with Jefferson, and provide depth to the defensive line.
