Top 20 undrafted free agents not loaded with sudden impact
By Gil Brandt

The lockout has made this a difficult and trying offseason for college players who went undrafted. Rookie free agents are some of the players who benefit the most from the offseason team activities that take place in May and June. Because those didn't happen, it's unlikely an undrafted free agent this season will have the impact LeGarrette Blount had with the Buccaneers last season.

As you look over my list of the top 20 available UFAs, keep this in mind: The two positions that are the easiest to come in and play right away are running back and cornerback; the two most difficult are quarterback and wide receiver. news: Top 20 undrafted free agents not loaded with sudden impact


2. Mark Herzlich, LB, Boston College: His battle against cancer is well documented and speaks to his hunger to play. If healthy, he can play all downs.
If he gets healthy and return to his old form he would be a great addition. Great attitude and desire.


5. Jake Kirkpatrick, C, TCU: A former high school basketball player who is strong and smart and has traits that remind some of Colts veteran Jeff Saturday.
If Tennant is ready to start and we let Goodwin go this could be a good guy to plug in as his backup. I like the Saturday comparison.


10. Brandon Bair, DT, Oregon: Needs to add weight but has the frame to do so. Very active.

11. Sealver Siliga, DT, Utah: Strong at the point of attack and reminds some of another Utah product, Dolphins defensive tackle Paul Soliai.

15. Ian Williams, DT, Notre Dame: A four-year starter at Notre Dame who is very strong and athletic.
I'd like to se the Saints add another young DT to help keep big Sed fresh and just get younger at the position. Still bummed that the big guy from LSU didn't pan out last year.

2,4,6,11 would be my top choices. I choose 4 because we're thin at the position and 6 because I think he would be a viable replacement for Reggie. The other two guys for obvious reasons.
