    Which UDFA Do You Hope Makes the Team?

    I'm not asking for what guy you think makes the team.  I want to know what guy you want to make the team.  For me it's Roy Finch.  This guy runs like he is 30 pounds heavier than he actually is.  I think he could be great in the return game.  I love guys that get passed over because of their size (ala Woodhead).

    Finch would be a good one, but I think White is a better back and could also return kicks. With the Pat's lack of depth at LB, Gordon would be my pick.

    Joe Don Duncan and Morris. I want both as we have a need at both positions for depth

    I like the LB Gordon as well, but am intrigued by RB Houston and the big TE out of ECU, Jones? I believe is his last name.

    I just read an article on the kid that said the coaches there didn't think he practiced hard or took the game seriously - he was buried on the depth chart because of it. I haven't seen any of his tape, but I'm going to check it out anyway.

    My picks would be Finch and Joe Don Duncan. Both are fun to watch and easy to root for.

    Jones the TE @ 6'8" and 275 hope he gets it-could use another TE

    Only issue is apparently he is a below average blocker and is a bit slow (both physical and upstairs since he was ineligible his last year for academic reasons). If he can make the team, great, he's a massive body. But, I don't think BB will have him on the team to run 5yrds and stand straight up. The kid needs to learn to block in a hurry over the summer and give them a reason other than his size to keep him.

    Do we officially have Joe Don Duncan?? I saw a link Saturday nite that he was going to sign with the Patriots but haven't seen his name announced. This guy has a chance to make the 53

    Jones is interesting because he has that height but he also had a serious vertical jump and I find Houston stats to be exciting - strange to me that he would go undrafted - decent speed, incredible hops, pass catching.


    JDD has a broken foot so that may be an issue with his signing - just complicates the situation and the negotiation.

    That makes sense then. I read somewhere that he agreed to go to Colts camp, but he didn't sign there either. Time to move on.

    It would be great of we struck gold in a TE, an OL, a LB or a DL. If it is just a matter of someone good enough to add depth we need that at LB and TE.

     From a need perspective, I want one of the LBs to be a success.  Other than that, I'm hoping Asa Watson makes it, just because I always liked his brother Ben.

    Re: Which UDFA Do You Hope Makes the Team?

    hard to choose a favorite without a single practice, let alone a preseason game, but we could really use depth at TE, RB, and LB, so hopefully a few of those guys make it. the giant TE is intruiging but seems like more of a practice squad guy. the michigan LB sounds like mostly a special teams player but he got a $20k signing bonus which is huge (consider that each team has a limit of $80k total to spend on undrafted players) so they must see something in him. i have a feeling the Iowa LB will have a good chance to stick. not great measurables but a very productive college player and a serious position of need. the indiana RB probably will get a good chance to unseat Bolden, he's got a skill set we need and dont have with the loss of Blount.

    there a lot of interesting undrafted players this time around, and we know BB has no fear of using them, so it will be interesting to see how they develop.

    I really like this kid from Indiana Stephen Houston:

    This kid is solid, I like Finch as well--They both have a chance to make the team IMO.

    James Morris was a home run URFA, IMO... really like his chances to make the team as I think he's instinctive, underrated athleticially and shows 4 down potential... really surprised that he wasn't drafted.

    I'd really like Jones to make the 53-man.  That would make for a couple of really massive TEs and provide some depth at the position.

    I'd like to see Jones make it too. The kid is huge and if he learns how to get in the corner of the endzone and grab the ball at the highest point, he won't need to be able to block!

    Good to hear mbeaulieu.   Need depth at LB, so hope he's an answer there.

    I would like to see Tyler Ott make it...

    what is Ott's specialty?....Throws the ball between his legs while bending over.

    seriosly, I would like to see Gordon. Intrigued by his athleticism and he is still learning to play LB, but has played safety and WR previously.

    The Jamea Thomas kid has a chance to replace Slater as the new Ace. He would present better value with a rookie contract(6th round) and ability to play in sub packages. To be honest, J.T. IMO is the most intriguing  UDFA we have. I think he makes the team and is playing in sub packages by mid year. Its not that he is THAT good, but our safeties have been THAT bad. He is better than Harmon and Wilson IMO and maybe better than Chung as well. He can play CB or S but I see his immediate impact in sub packages playing the slot where he can use his blitzing skills to come off the edge. I really like the potential of J.T. I think he WILL do what BB thought Tavon was gonna do for us.
