What UDFA will make the team?


Recommended Posts

Just to refresh memories:

Brandon Wellington, Washington, LB

Carter O'Donnell, Canada, OL

Chris Williams, Wagner, DT

DeMichael Harris, Southern Mississippi, WR

Donald Rutledge Jr., Georgia Southern, S

Farrod Green, Mississippi State, TE

Kameron Cline, South Dakota, DE

Kendall Coleman, Syracuse, DE

Rodrigo Blankenship, Georgia, PK

Travis Reed, South Alabama, CB

 

I'd give the edge to O'Donnell or Hot Rod, if any make it. Coleman also has a chance imo.

Yep... the theme with the UDFAs in the last several years has been - look at the ones that get the biggest signing bonuses. Rigoberto got the biggest bonus in his UDFA class and made the team. Hale Hentges surprisingly got the biggest signing bonus last year and made the team too. This year it's O'Donnell and Rodrigo Blankenship. So yeah... it will probably be between them... maybe both?

My guess is that this will be a tougher year for the UDFA to make the team.   Not as much training camp or preseason to make their case.

My darkhorse is Demichael Harris. Kid is dangerous with the ball in his hand.

Mine is The kicker I think he beats out the other guy easy and the other is O'Donnell because of the lack of depth at tackle.

I think Harris will end up on the PS. Could develop into a nice slot or satellite guy with return capabilities. Tried to find a 40 on him but didn't see anything.

I always like to look at who has to be cut for one of those guys to make the team.

 

Except for K, I don't see much hope for any of them. 

 

I'd love it if O'Donnell makes it, the O Line depth isn't great.  But I've been fooled by those Canadian players before...

This place has him at 4.52, and this one has him at 4.57, which (if either is true) would be fairly average speed. My guess is neither is correct because:

 

This place, however, has Harris quoted a couple years ago as saying, "Going into my senior year (of high school), which was the last time I was officially timed, I ran a 4.37 (40-yard dash) at Mississippi State's camp," he said. "But I'm feeling like I can go in the high 4.2s, low 4.3s right now."

 

I'm thinking the quote is much more likely to be accurate.

Probably.  He was a track guy in HS.  For his size, he better be fast.  

 

They increased the PS size this year, right?  I think that's his best chance.

I'm thinking O'Donnell makes it because our OL depth is suspect.  Especially if he can play tackle.  I think Rodrigo makes it and Chase gets traded before the start of the season.  I'm giving Coleman a chance because you can't have enough ER's.  Although I would prefer they sign Clowney and let Coleman develop on the PS.

If he is that fast...then it's a real shame his Pro Day was canceled. A 40 like that would have gotten him drafted no doubt.

 

Harris looks real fast...but also really agile...want to see what he can do in PS.

 

Signing with the Colts was a good call though...Reich likes that type of skillset...and there could be a spot in the RB rotation at some point in the future.

I believe Hot Rod stands a REALLY good chance of continuing the streak.  

 

I agree with this mainly because of the uncertainty the organization has had with AV. It reflects their lack of total confidence in Chase (not sure why), and that could open the door for Hot Rod.

I don't trust Draftscout #s at all, but Playerprofiler has been pretty accurate. 

 

Not sure what to make of his own quote. If MissSt is hand timed, they tend to be generous (in general at camps). If electronic, I'd have more confidence (on the 4.37 aspect).  Hard for me to buy the 4.2 and low 4.3 part, as he'd likely be on a big D1 scholarship at minimum for track and field. I follow a lot of the camps and college recruiting in general. Harris looks to have gone the Juco route prior the SMiss, so perhaps he just didn't have the grades. Still,  with that speed, seems he would have gotten notice from bigger schools coming out of Juco (he was only rated at 2 star Juco).

 

Need to watch some tape I guess.

I'm with the majority with Rico beating out McLaughlin  and O'Donnell I think also makes it, Coleman has a shot. Farrod Green hasnt been discussed much but he really showed a lot last year at Miss State and our TE depth is spotty IMO as M.A.C. didnt really improve as much as many thought.  Brandon Wellington had a hell of a season last year at UW can he join college teammate Jacob Eason ? Its possible he may have to beat out E.J. Speed,Skai Moore , Zaire Franklin and/or Matthew Adams as I expect Glascow to join Leonard,Okereke,Walker as the top 4 backers.

    • By now most should realize the Colts prefer to retain their own as much as possible.  The defense is much improved with the signing in place but always room for improvement at key positions.  Below is my FA/resign list have already put together mid-season.   Colts FA ~58m: QB Jacoby Brissett 21.3 WR T.Y. Hilton 14.5 TE Jack Doyle 8.5 RDE Denico Autry 5.7 ILB Anthony Walker 2.2 S Tavon Wilson 750k DB Tremon Smith 750k (keeper?) WR Marcus Johnson 582k (practice squad) S Malik Hooker 4m WR Ashton Dulin 542k   Resign ~ 90m QB Philip Rivers 26.3m (probably will drop) DE Justin Houston 11m (3-4 good years left like Mathis and Freeny) DB Xavier Rhodes 8m RG Mark Glowinski 6.9 (improved game this year) RDT Grover Stewart 7.5m (most improved player on defense) DE Al-Quadin Muhammad 3m OL Le’Raven Clark 1.2m DB T.J. Carrie 1.2m (special teamer) TE Trey Burton 4.5m S George Odum 1.25 TE Mo Alie-Cox (RFA) – 6.25m DT Taylor Stallworth 1m (otc hit 4.8m in 1 game) LT Chaz Green 850k (special teams) WR Zach Pascal 7m RB Marlon Mack 4m (when healthy proved to be lead back) C Joey Hunt 300k RG Jake Eldrenkamp 200k (special teamer) Edge Cassius Marsh 250k (special teamer) TE Farrod Green 200k (practice squad) S Ibraheim Campbell 200k (special teamer)
    • Originally was thinking we would be closer to 100 mil in cap space but sounds more like 75 mil.  Kind of why for this example only budgeted ~40 mil for FAs after calculating ~95 mil to resign players while leaving a minimum of 20 mil to sign draftees.  This should still allow discretionary cap space for the Club to do as needed short-term.
    • I still have Patrick Jones II at the top of my early 2021 NFL Draft Board.  Would be happy to acquire either Weaver or Jones.  Other top names have seen but truthfully haven't been impressed with them as have been with these two players at RDE.
