Top prospects not drafted
 
I'm curious what individuals some of you who have scouted players have as still remaining as potential UDFAs? Here are the top 20 leftover from my spreadsheet:

Antonio Richardson OT Tennessee
Anthony Johnson DT LSU
Cameron Fleming OT Stanford
Christian Jones OLB Florida State
Kelcy Quarles DT South Carolina
Marcus Roberson CB Florida
Brandon Coleman WR Rutgers
Jackson Jeffcoat DE Texas
Shayne Skov ILB Stanford
Rashaad Reynolds CB Oregon State
Deandre Coleman DT California
Craig Loston SS LSU
Adrian Hubbard OLB Alabama
James Gayle DE Virginia Tech
Dion Bailey FS Southern California
Louchiez Purifoy CB Florida
Anthony Steen OG Alabama
Gabe Ikard C Oklahoma
James Hurst OT North Carolina
Chris Davis CB Auburn

Are any of them good? Richardson had really high rankings (as in, all 6 places I looked at had him in the top 75) to go undrafted - must be something up with him that was not obvious (maybe injury or drug test?). I've seen people mention Skov. I wonder if we might have a better shot at Jeffcoat if he's any good (I don't follow Texas but I know others here do). Who else might be good to go after?

Several should be good and some are now signed (we got James Gayle). I like Dion Bailey mocked a 3rd, Steen, Coleman, Hubbard and Quarles. AS UDFA I'd gamble on Purifoy, Hurst. Jones and Jeffcoat.

I'd also like D'Andre Coleman DT. I guess you were talking about Brandon Coleman WR but both would be good pickups.

So many possibilities; well, at least based on how they played in college.
Perhaps they have some red flags that we don't know of.
Richardson, for example, has a medical condition that I'd asked our Doc to verify (and he did respond in one of the threads.)

Brandon Coleman could have some kind of deficiency in learning; such a waste of talent if that's the case.

Shayne Skov was a head scratcher for me, I was hoping Texans would pick him up late, ILB was a need I thought.

Antonio Richardson OT Tennessee
Cameron Fleming OT Stanford
Christian Jones OLB Florida State
Marcus Roberson CB Florida
Shayne Skov ILB Stanford
Rashaad Reynolds CB Oregon State
Adrian Hubbard OLB Alabama
Louchiez Purifoy CB Florida
Max Bullough ILB Michigan State.


That's the list I would start with. Obviously that is limited to certain positions that I researched in depth prior to the draft.


Really shocked to see some of these names go undrafted , several were as high as the 3rd round at various points of the evaluation process.

He got red flagged by medical at the Combine for his knee and his shoulder. He was also just an average athlete before the injuries.

thank you for the info, makes sense but he was a tackling machine at Stanford.
