Jets, Chiefs lead early 8th round signings … Roughly half the teams around the NFL have officially announced their post-draft undrafted rookie free agent classes. And based on our unofficial list of the top undrafted free agents following last week’s draft, the NY Jets and Kansas City have done pretty well for themselves. The Jets in fact signed former Miami DT Leonard Taylor, the top undrafted player on our list, along with former UConn DE Eric Watts, who came in at #7. For their part, the Chiefs signed #5 LB Curtis Jacobs of Penn State, #9 OT Ethan Driskell of Marshall, #11 Florida State DT Fabien Lovett and #22 RB Emani Bailey of TCU. Here is the full list of top undrafted rookie signings as of today. Hopefully, more teams will be formally announcing their undrafted rookie signings in the next day or so, particularly those teams that completed their minicamps this past weekend.
