    I'm pulling for Freddie - - would love to see lots of "Roach Clips"!

    Another vote for the big sleeper would be someone who was actually on an NFL team last year (didn't play) but, after finding out about him here on this board last week and reading his info, I can't wait to see him unleashed - - Wesley Britt.

    I was excited about him last year, but after Rosie's glowing reviews during the season (when he credited a lot of his rushing improvement to practicing against Britt) I got reallllly excited. This guy has the potential to be a monster.

    By the way, I'm pulling for VBrown too. Looks like a hell of a kid, high character, smart as a whip, super hard worker. Reminds me a lot of Blue.

    Roach is the favorite, but keep your eye on Keon Jackson.

    talk about stockpiling talent

    wow.
    roach, woods, brown, britt, jackson. these are all really accomplished, talented college players.
    i dunno how many players BB/SP can keep/hide on practice rosters, even hot-bunking them. these guys look to have at least as much potential as wesley mallard, bam phillips, michael mcgrew, jeff roehl, zuriel smith.
    seems like zuriel smith and roehl may have fallen out of favor with coughlin and parcells, respectively.
    amazing the caliber of players who are on the fringes of the nfl.
    patriots TC is gonna be outrageously competitive.
    as for randall 'blue' gay, he weathered deaths, injuries, depression throughout college. seems lou saban had his eye on him since gay was a HS RB. IMO when randall wasn't drafted, saban 'guided' gay to BB, where he would at least be looked at, not kept on the fringe. weknowtherest.
    freddie and vernell are the 2 i'll be following. brown looks like a dante hall type, one of those speed-of-light KRs. he could score some TDs and become a cult figure by thanksgiving.

    Before everyone gets too carried away, remember - even before these UDFAs were signed we ALREADY had to cut 25 players to get to the 53 man roster !! !! !! Don't hold your breath.

    On the other hand, it seems like about one player a year makes the team as an UDFA:
    00 - Paxton
    01 - Neal
    02 - (none)
    03 - Mruczkowski
    04 - Gay, Alexander
    05 - Wright (Childress, McGrew, Spann, Thomas, Ventrone)
    .......Likely no more than 1 player from 05 will make the roster - if any
    .......Most are still eligible to complete for practice squad slots vs 06 rookies and 06 UDFA

    Vernell Brown and Gemara Williams both look possible with both CBs racking up 60+ tackles last year which looks good for their Special Teams potential.

    Corey Mays played very well in the Hula Bowl, I can see him replacing Eric Alexander as the borderline ILB.

    I like Roach, Venell, Andrews and Pierre. Pierre was a first day pick coming into last years college football season. He was a great recruit out of high school, who never played up to his potential at Michigan. Could be a solid pass rushing OLB in the 3-4.

    I am curious to see Sam Smith SS/LB Delaware St. He transferred from William Penn and sat out 2003. He was elected captain of the 2004 team and again in 2005. 1-AA All American with over 200 tackles in his two tears at Delaware St. 13.5 sacks as a Sr LB. Small for a LB, would like to see him as a SS.

    Anyone notice we have 4 rookies that play SS ... hedging our bet in case Harrison can't start until week 7?
