Surprise Undrafted Prospects


Just as there are guys that sneak into round one with a great postseason, some big name prospects will slide. Some of these players even fail to hear their name called during draft weekend. This year will be no different. Here is a list of potential undrafted , but familiar names. There is a not-so-secret formula for these guys too:

Poor Character
+
Poor Workouts
=
Undrafted

Alan Zamaitis, CB, Penn State
Claude Wroten, DT, LSU
Charles Gordon, CB, Kansas
Ray Edwards, DE, Purdue
Bernard Pollard, SS, Purdue
Stanley McClover, DE, Auburn
Orien Harris, DT, Miami
Daryl Tapp, DE, Virginia Tech

Not all the prospects listed had both character concerns and poor measurables, but they all have one or the other. And they all could be waiting seemingly forever for that phone call.

Here is a news:
The NFL was shaken by the tragic news that Bengals WR Chris Henry had passed away from injuries suffered from an accident

As someone, who is part of the “NFL Family”, I can only feel remorse today (December 17, 2009) as the Charlotte police confirmed that Cincinnati Bengals WR Chris Henry, age 26, passed away this morning at 6:36 a.m. ET. Henry had been on life support since yesterday when he fell out of the back of a pickup truck following a domestic dispute with his fiancĂ©e Loleini Tonga. The death of Henry brings a sad ending to a once-promising career that had recently re-blossomed after the former high draft pick (3rd round – 83rd overall in the 2005 NFL Draft) had put aside some earlier troubles (arrests and league mandated suspensions) to finally grow-up. Henry was a five-year NFL veteran who used his speed and wiry frame (6’4, 190) to excel at catching the “deep ball” – averaged 15.6 yards per catch for his career.

1. I think L.J. is overrated from the Chiefs. Did you see him on Hard Knocks last season on HBO. He's cry baby when he doesnt get the ball.

Im also looking forward to Adrian Peterson from the Vikes, NOT the Bears, haha. He showed some sparks of greatness in the Packers game. I was just waiting for him to explode and run it in for a touchdown everytime he touched it. Being that its only week 1, I saw a lot to look forward to in his runs.

The Saints got me a little excited also but I was so disappointed with last year with them. But they have that same glimmer from that "magical" year. Looking forward to seeing Drew Brees lighting up another offensive show. But Marques Colston is out, hopefully they can hold it together.

The Colts looked really rusty in the Bears game and the Bears look phenomenal. Given, Manning hasnt had a real snap in a while and Marvin Harrison has been out for a long time and Anthony Gonzalez is still technically a rookie Im still not too worried about them. But F&%K the Colts, haha. As far as I see it they are my rivals for the Pats, haha.NFL Draft
