I was just reading a study in the Pro Football Weekly Draft Guide before I filed it. Sorry no link. It was on the impact of UDFA's on NFL teams. The study was done for the 5 years 2004 through 2008 season. It showed that there is an average of 5.5 UDFA on all NFL 53 man rosters. The Colts led with 12, Dallas had 10 and the Patriots 5. I guess you can draw your own conclusions from this. But those player that the Patriots signed as UDFA's this year cannot be dismissed as just TC practice players.
