One thing to remember is that Bill may well have the other players rated higher. A UDFA chooses where they want to go if they have multiple offers.
Maybe the Pats put in offers on the table for the guys on your list but the player/agent felt they had a better chance of making the club based on a number of different variables, such as scheme, roster depth, coaches etc.
Or maybe they just were not quick enough off the draw on Monday night when there was confusion when UDFAs could actually be contacted or signed.
31 other teams are bidding against Coach Bill for these players.
31 other teams have thinner rosters and offer FAR better chance for success and 100's of 1,000's of $$$.
To propose to "compete" against Coach Bill with a select choice of players ~ perhaps none of whom he had a prayer of pulling in, against 31 teams with thinner rosters and, therefore, far more opportunity to provide hundreds of thousands of dollars, or more, of employment ~ versus who he could pull in...is astonishingly pathetic.
As stated previously, there are 31 other teams bidding on UDFAs. According to a poster on a 49er board, the Pats made and offer to Jake Kilpatrick (center from TCU and a favorite UDFA amongst posters) but the Colts got there first. Try as one might, you can't get them all.
Hey Guys, it's like I told Michael Jackson a while back: "Lighten Up."
The UFDA's are about as close as we can get to competing with an organization because we have so long to study what's left. As was said before, the other players might have been fans of other teams, wanted to work closer to home, saw Peyton Manning yelling "cut that meat, cut that meat" and fell in love with the Colts.
I really did like the guys I picked. I'm a little sorry Bill didn't get any of them, but I am really happy that none of them landed on the Jets.
