It is possible that three UDFAs make the team. All Defensive too. I think 2 of 3 mentioned below will.
Always have to clarify that I know this is without Pads but that is all we have to go by, for now at least.
Lester - For whatever reason 32 teams passed on this guy thru 7 rounds. His times were similiar to Vaccaro's. I know he chose Carolina over a number of other teams because he felt he could compete for a positon here better than anywhere else. He has good size, has football savvy and started 3 years at a program that has won 3 of the past 4 National Titles. I say his chances are pretty high that he will make this team. Rivera commented on how well he was doing. When they get him in pads, I think we are going to see why he was a started at the NFL Players factory known as Alabama.
Gaydosh - Good measurables. I was surprised to see the numbers he posted at the Canadian combine. I think they said he would have been 3rd on Reps at 225 at our combine. He is strong, quick and seems to get it. Barring injury of Star, KK, Edwards and Cole, I think he will battle hard and win against Fua for the 5th defensive tackle position. (If we keep 5 DTs)
White - Another good sized DCB 6-1 205, The guy is another Rook that impressed Rivera. Louisiana Lafayette isn't your football factory but with some good NFL coaching he might surprise someone and make the roster. At minimum as a special teams player and maybe a nickle spot forcing Moore off the team. I just don't see the need for more than 2 Nickle CBs. IMO he'll have the toughest time making the team but could very easily show he is better than the bottom portion of our defensive backfield line up. The only thing that keeps him off the roster is his inexperience.
My prediction is
Lester easily wins a spot as a backup Safety
Gaydosh We keep 5 DTs and he beats out FUA for the final DT spot.
White has a good preseason and we'll try to stash him on the PS (Unsuccessfuly)
Offensively do we have anyone that impressed? The only name I have heard is Bersin and that is only because he is an alum of Wofford. I like the guy and I am pulling for him. His chances are slim.
Are there any other UDFA that truly have a chance? Technically all do but any that can seriously challenge for a spot?
