UNDRAFTED Rookies Who Caught My Eye

By | September 2, 2016

Given the overall caliber of product out on the field I have watched way too many pre-season games this Summer. As teams prepare to publish their final roster cuts this weekend I wanted to get you my quick list of 20 Rookies who got my attention in August, all of them being undrafted. I am not projecting all of these guys will make their present team’s opening day rosters. But those that don’t are very likely to end up on a practice squad, or two, in the coming months. And I will predict that those who don’t make a roster now will show up in Training Camps next year listed as 1st Year Players, with a solid shot to make a roster for 2017.
