5 Undrafted Free Agents You Should Know


John David Mercer-USA TODAY Sports

5. CB Nick Marshall, Auburn- Jacksonville Jaguars

Nick was remarkable as he lead the Auburn Tigers to the National Championship Game at QB. But he did not see a future at QB in the Nfl so he decided to switch to Cornerback before the Senior Bowl. He hadn't played at corner since before transferring to Auburn and that showed at the Senior Bowl. When watching film on him you see good change of direction and an ability to high point the ball. At 6'1" and 207 lbs he has the size that teams love in corners. If he develops quickly, he can turn into a good corner.

4. QB Brandon Bridge, South Alabama- Dallas Cowboys

Bridge has the chance to be the next Tony Romo while studying under Tony Romo. Bridge has some accuracy issues. But when watching him against Mississippi State you can see some good deep accuracy and pocket presence. He needs to work on keeping the ball close to his body. But the cannon of an arm that he has to go with great speed leaves only the need for better accuracy and vision to be an elite quarterback.

3. ILB Taiwan Jones, Michigan St.

Jones is this draft's version of Brandon Spikes. A punishing, thumper that has elite size and strength. However, he likes elite speed and instincts. This might be why he hasn't signed yet. But there are plenty of teams that would get better with the signing of him. I could see a team like the Jets or the Raiders taking a chance to develop him into a mauler in the middle.

2. WR Titus Davis, Central Michigan- San Diego Chargers

Davis is made in the mold of both Keenan Allen and Steve Johnson. He runs smooth routes and has soft hands. He plays with more speed than his 4.51 forty showed at the combine. He will be able to develop for a year and the get his chance when Malcolm Floyd's contract ends at the end of this year. In this signing the Chargers are hoping to get what they were supposed to from Vincent Brown. 

1. La'el Collins, LSU

If it weren't for the investigation into his pregnant ex-girlfriend's murder, he would have been a first round pick. Now he is answering questions at the police station in Louisiana. Many teams will love his versatility as he can play either guard or tackle. He also has good quickness to go with strength. Will have to improve his transition to the second level and his leaning tendencies but has the potential to be a Pro Bowl Guard. Once his name is cleared, look for him to be signed immidiately.
