Notable undrafted prospects

I’m busy moving across town, but with undrafted free agents likely able to sign with teams later this week this (mostly) re-run is very timely.

Pierre Allen, DE, Nebraska, 6’4″ 273lbs, end with good size and strength for run defense. Has the athleticism to develop into an effective pass rusher.

Kendric Burney, CB, North Carolina, 5’9″ 186lbs, lacks size and ran poorly at the combine but has good zone coverage skills and works hard in run support.

Ryan Bartholomew, C, Syracuse, 6’1″ 303lbs, a bit undersized, but very athletic Bartholomew is a raw prospect that could develop into a very good center.

Noel Devine, RB, West Virginia, 5’8″ 179lbs, very small with some character concerns, but Devine is an explosive playmaker running and catching the ball.

Jeron Johnson, S, Boise St, 5’10″ 212lbs, very physical and effective in run support Johnson struggles in deep coverage despite decent athleticism due to over-agressiveness and poor technique

Jarriel King, T/G, South Carolina, 6’5″ 317lbs, has the size and athleticism to play tackle in the NFL, but a bit slow off the line and has a serious heart condition that will need to be medically cleared if he’s going to play in the NFL.

Joe Lefeged, S, Rutgers, 6’0″ 210lbs, rough in coverage, but should be able to contribute on STs and was effective against the run.

Kris O’Dowd, C, USC, 6’4″ 303lbs, smart hard working lineman, but lack of size/strength along with troube staying healthy hurts him.

Tim Barnes, C, Missouri, 6’4″ 300lbs, athletic center who moves well in space, but can have trouble with dealing with very quick DTs off the snap and good bull rushes.

Schuylar Oordt, TE, Northern Iowa, 6’6″ 261lbs, freakish size/speed combo with good hands, but not nearly the blocker his size would suggest and his route running needs more work. A guy to stash on special teams for a while before rolling out as a regular part of the offense.

Dane Sanzenbacher, WR, Ohio St, 5’11″ 182lbs, sure handed, hard working with excellent route running skills, but very limited upside.

Ian Williams, DT, Notre Dame, 6’1″ 319lbs, run stuffer with an effective bull rush, he doesn’t have many other moves as a pass rusher and is coming off a knee injury.

Deunta Williams, S, North Carolina, 6’2″ 205lbs, good size, speed and cover skills. Isn’t especially physical in run support and can get overagressive in coverage.

Kai Forbath, K, UCLA, 6’1″ 192, Had a disapointing senior season making just 72.2% of his FG attempts after being above 83% his first 3 seasons and above 90% his junior year. Accuracy can vary year to year quite a bit though, while power is more consistent. Forbath is 10 for 13 in his career from 50 yards or more. With Vinatieri a free agent the Colts could look to a cheaper alternative.

Derek Hall, OT, Stanford, 6’4″ 308lbs, has the size and athleticism to play RT in the pros and performed at a high level starting at RT for a line that allowed just 6 sacks last season, but Hall has only a single season of experience playing tackle after moving from the defensive line.
