Top Undrafted Free Agents

Every year great players go undrafted. Just to throw out an example – last year one of my top undrafted players was Blair White, a wide receiver out of Michigan State. I gave White a 3rd-round grade, but he slipped past everyone in the draft. The Colts eventually signed him and he played a key role for them down the stretch, catching 36 passes for 355 yards.

So who is this year’s Blair White? Here are the 72 players whom I gave draftable grades that did not hear their names called this weekend:
