    Thought we could use a team specific thread since the earlier thread is all over the place. The link is updating all reported team (unofficial until tomorrow) signings as well.

    Last Updated: July 26th – 1:01am

    These are the Undrafted Free Agents that have reportedly (unofficial) been signed by the following NFL Teams.

    Patriots
    Corey Woods (OT, Akron)
    Jeremy Ross (WR/KR, Cal)
    Alex Silvestro (DE, Rutgers)
    Jeff Tarpinian (LB, Iowa)
    Kyle Hix (OT, Texas)
    Mike Berry (OL, Auburn)

    We seem to have missed out on a couple of targets because we were offering tryouts and other teams were offering contracts.

    Probably no posters have "binkies" on that list, but it will be an eventful week that I'm sure will bring the Pats a couple nice surprises through trades or Free agency.

    Who cares? It's UDFA time during a shortened offseason without adequate time to coach up the low end players. If you get a player from this dross, it's mega bonus time.

    Optimal hair color.

    That said, the 2011 OL crop seems to be getting poor marks on the all-important ugly beard potential. :p

    Stop the presses- captain stone, the guy who is convinced that he could do a better job than Belichick, disapproves.

    It appears that everyone's favorite binkie, Mark Herzlich may have defected to the Baltimore Ravens..

    Re: Reported Patriots UDFA signings

    Looks like the UDFAs so far are focused on two things:

    1. Long term OL development (of some monster sized guys).
    [note-question: Is this a Pats only phenomenon that all our new OL have to be at least 6'7" inches or is this a league wide thing that these guys are now so big?]

    2. Cheap ST contributors who could become role players over time: i.e. Ross and Tarpinian.
    The one report said tarpinian projects size wise as an ILB; but he was a DB who converted to LB and was a backup LB on the team (according to the video) whose video highlight was a ST monster tackle and caused fumble. [Edit add: So I think he is more a ST guy and not a LB project.]

    The only exception is this DE Tarpinian from Rutgers who seems to fit the OLB project category that everyone is screaming for. But he is probably more a wild card than a for sure project.

    I note from the video that he is ALWAYS (2 of 2 instances in video) standing at the center of the team huddles at the game/half starts i.e. should mean he was a leader on Rutgers. That is one thing about him that sure fits the profile of what BB is looking for.

    Re: Reported Patriots UDFA signings

    Judging by how fast some of these guys twittered they are on Pats; I think if BB really wanted Herzlich - he would already be in the fold.

    I suspect he just doesn't fit the profile of what BB sees as a need; even if he is a great local story. I don't know enough about him as a LB to know where/if he could fit on Pats.

    Re: Reported Patriots UDFA signings

    In the past, BB has liked guys who can play the hybrid SS/LB role for sub-defenses. But it takes a guy who has some speed and coverage ability and obviously he first has to make the team on his STs ability. Tarpinian is the right size for that.

    All these guys are a crap shoot. But every year at least one makes the team.

    Tarpinian's Pro Day Stats

    Height: 6'02 1/8"
    Weight: 235

    40: 4.56
    20: 2.68
    10: 1.67

    Bench: 16
    Vertical: 37"
    Broad: 10' 05"
    3-Cone: 4.10
    Shuttle: 6.78

    Of note: Tarpinian was an option QB in HS and went to Iowa as a Safety but was converted to LB.

    With how he hits and his coverage ability, I wouldn't be surprised to see him on the PS and coverted to a safety...
