Assessing Every Detroit Lions UDFA's Chances of Making Final Roster

The Detroit Lions struck it rich with undrafted free agents, or UDFAs, a year ago. Did they do it again in 2014?

In 2013 Detroit landed starting right tackle LaAdrian Waddle (pictured) and red-zone tight end Joseph Fauria, who caught seven touchdowns as a rookie. It's going to be difficult to top that level of contribution, but the Lions do have some intriguing candidates.

The first step for the UDFAs is to make the final 53-man roster. 

Projecting that potential is fuzzy at this point. After all, they've only had one weekend of rookie camp as Lions. It will be a lot easier to ascertain roster likelihood once the veterans return and we get to see them in live action.

Still, there are some indications about the early chances. From signing bonuses to coaching quotes to scouting fits, there are clues to roster viability.

Here's a very early stab at the likelihood of each current (as of May 20) undrafted free agent to survive several rounds of cuts and earn a spot on the final roster.
