    Re: Official UDFA Signings Thread

    nope.

    draftdaddy also says Jon Cornish, RB, turned down an offer from a few NFL teams to play in CFL

    i think it might be a good move..he can actually play in CFL where as an UDFA..hed be either a 3rd..a PS or wouldnt even be on an NFL team if he got cut

    If this kid could stay healthy, he'd have an excellent chance of making their practice squad. Reminds me A LOT of Marv Cook.

    Not the fastest but has a knack for getting open and has good hands. He did not have a stable qb situation the last two years and was injury prone. One of the best in the BE as a soph.

    Re: Official UDFA Signings Thread

    Does anyone know what happened to tom Zbikowski the Safety from notre dame. I thought that he would be a good pick in the later rounds but I cant find any information about him. Did he even declare for the draft? If he did I think the patriots should bring him in for training camp, worst case I think he could make a good retun man.

    Re: Official UDFA Signings Thread

    When UDFAs make the club, is there salary at the minimum? And, is that salary the same as, say, a 7th round draft choice, or do the draft choices make more? The reason i ask is that there may be some incentive for teams to pick very risky athletes (i.e. shoot for the stars) in the draft, whereas in UDFA, you pick gus that may have what it takes to make the team. I know it's a complete crapshoot, but all things being even, you'd rather a UDFA make the team if the pay is less. Plus, a lot more UDFAs have made the Patriots in recent years than late round picks. Granted, twice as many UDFAs come to camp than do second day picks, but still... It's weird.
