    Zach Hurd is the best guard that UConn has had in a decade, and the last two that made the NFL were either on a practice squad (Krug on the Patriots) or else an immediate rookie starter (Thomas for the Dolphins). I watched a lot of Hurd and he was a better guard than the other two.

    Sure, why not. UDFA's are the time to draft locals. However, given who we drafted with our last two picks, we could have drafted him.

    I agree.


    perhaps BB saw this inevitability of not being off board and intends to sign him as an UDFA

    Herzlich is ideally placed to sign on w/ an organization that can afford to wait for his development

    I conservatively estimate Herzlich will be a force in 3 years and at 2 years he would fit fine.

    Our window is the next 5 years. We have sooo many pieces. He would be another key acquisition

    Cancer excuses/ fake injuries b/c of cancer will allow us to hide him. Prove that we are lying NFL


    they would not dare accuse us or him of being "dishonest"

    I sense BB thinks as I do.

    Yeah, I'd like to see what Bair could do in camp. Also, I think DT/DE Corbin Bryant (line-mate of Corey Wootten) and OG Zach Hurd (blocker for Todman) went undrafted. Won't say I was "in love" with any of these guys, but they were on my list of potentially intriguing late-rounders/PFAs.

    Not yet. Though I might have called a few before the draft was over and told them I was interested - though that might have drawn a fine from Goodell so maybe not.

    I believe you could still talk to any draft eligible players up until Mr Irrelivant was named. You couldn't offer them a deal or anything but you could definitely express your interest and let them know how you see them as part of your team. To get a head start on these UDFA's you almost have to recruit them, so hopefully BB and the rest of the Pats war room were on the phones throughout the 6th and 7th rounds talking to these guys.

    Generally the Pats will add around 20 rookies to the team through the draft and UDFA's, so I would expect to see us sign around 10 to 12 guys once this whole CBA mess is worked out. I still like a lot of the guys that are still on the board, many of whom have already been mentioned.

    The guys available that I like:

    LB- Herzlich
    WR- Ricardo Lockett
    WR- Terrence Tolliver
    WR- Darvin Adams
    WR- Tori Gurley
    WR- Lestar Jean
    WR- DeAndre Brown
    WR- Andre Holmes
    WR- Armon Binns
    TE- Weslye Saunders
    OL- Joshua Davis
    OL- Zach Hurd
    OL- Jarriel King
    OL- Willie Smith
    OL- David Mims
    OL- Will Yeatman
    OL- Justin Boren
    OL- Kyle Hix
    OL- Kris O'Dowd
    OL- Zane Taylor
    OL- Tim Barnes
    OL- Alex Linnenkohl
    DL- Ian Williams
    DL- Cedric Thornton
    DL- Adrian Taylor

    DE/OLB- Pierre Allen
    DE/OLB- Ryan Winterswyk
    DE/OLB- Brandon Bair
    DE/OLB- Ugo Chinasa
    DE/OLB- Steven Friday

    DB- Deunta Williams
    DB- Kendric Burney

    DB- Joe Lefeged
    DB- Deandre McDaniel
    DB- Jeron Johnson
    K- Kai Forbath
    LS- Daniel Aken
    LS- Andrew Shulze
    LS- Christian Yount
    Ath- Jerrod Johnson
    RB- Graig Cooper
    RB- Brandon Saine

    RB- Noel Devine
    RB- John Clay
    RB- Derek Locke
    RB- Mario Fanin
    RB- Vai Taua
    QB- Scott Tolzien
    QB- Pat Devlin

    So there is obviously a lot of guys still available that we could look at as UDFA's. I'm obviously not expecting anything from them, but it would create competition, which is always good. I think the best player that went undrafted was Deunta Williams from UNC, who was a 1st round pick this time last year, and a 2nd round pick until he got hurt in the bowl game.

    I liked Willie Smith as a practice squad player but not a real huge need now that Solder, Cannon and Vollmer seem to be the future of the line. Liked Locke but now has no value to our team with Vereen and Ridley onboard. Would love to see Jones brought in to battle it out as a 4th or 5th CB.

    Anybody else thinks Maehl from Oregon :D?

    Seriously: more offensive linemen (Mills, Boren, O'Dowd), a flexible defensive lineman (Williams from ND, ), some WR (Tolliver, Spencer from NC St), and perhaps another RB? (John Clay, Noel Devine). And gunners, so any LB or S or CB that went undrafted may be given a chance (the S from Rutgers and the one from GT, Cornell from Ole Miss).

    Remember nobody can pick any prospect because of the lockout. Technically, there's no free agency. They may approach prospects in the mean time, but signing them is a long way to go.

    I agree and would add:

    Mario Fannin RB Auburn - can't believe he wasn't drafted!
    Schuylar Oordt TE Northern Iowa - practice squad
    Armon Binns WR Cinny - practice squad
    Tim Barnes C Missouri - practice squad
    Ugo Chinasa OLB Oklahoma State - practice squad
    Joe Lefeged FS Rutgers - practice squad
