Most of these guys have something that stands out and something that held them back. I just read that as a group they were rated as the 5th best in the NFL, alot better than the drafted players were rated. We really didn't have many major needs, so it's going to be very hard for any of these guys to make the roster on a team that was a game away from the Super Bolw last year and hopefully, better and closer to that goal, this year, Bennett sounds like a guy that maybe could perform in this league with some quality coaching, he has the tools, Varga had a very productive career, but RB is a fairly deep unit. There is always room for any of the linemen and defensive backs, if they can produce, they have a legit shot of making the team

Several have great write-ups but it's only practice so we'll see. But I do like the write-ups of Varga, Celiscar and Hodges. Have a good one Colts7!
