Still can't believe no one drafted Allen.
Did Iowa St's pro day get canceled? I saw some schools had there's early, but wasn't sure if Iowa St got theirs in.
Jomal Wiltz is now named ...Jamal Perry:
It looks like he's still considered part of the Dolphins' roster. But the Dolphins spent some big bucks on DBs in the off-season so I'm sure Jamal Perry will be fighting for a back-up role if he makes it to training camp. Assuming there IS an NFL season, of course.
I think someone had a thread on this. Putting it here for the record:
Checking on our UDFAs, I saw this nice series from the football program:
Glad to see some guys getting free agent contracts!
really surprised Lima and Spears weren't drafted with how fast they went in free agency..
The vast majority of UDFA go fast right after the draft.
Looks like it was a good draft for Montgomery, Lazard, & Butler yesterday.
Bears drafted 1st round TE, added a WR and a few late OL. No additional competition at RB while improving pieces around him. Plus they added a competent QB in Foles.
GB & AZ didn't draft any WR's.
Willie Harvey's unique writing style on display, congratulating Marcel Spears:
Miami has signed and drafted a bunch of free agent DBs - can't be good for Jomal Wiltz / Jamal Perry.
I was wondering about Harvey's chances of sticking with the Browns. He made it onto the game day roster a couple times but then got hurt.
Here's some info on what the "pathway" is for international players:
Blurbs from the article:
Players selected to the program who aren’t signed to a free agent contract will be randomly awarded to one of the NFL’s eight divisions. Following training camp, each player will be eligible for an international player practice squad exemption with his assigned team.
Assuming Leo doesn’t make the 53-man roster, the Eagles can keep him as a bonus 13th practice squad member.
Some nice pub on bengals.com for Marcel Spears. He's working at a Wa-Mart to support himself before training camp. Great work ethic and sounds like he has a terrific, supportive family:
Nice breakdown of Lazard and how he got where he is now.
This article talks about the NFL possibly requiring smaller squads for NFL training camps, to try to stem spreading the virus in more crowded conditions (does having 75 instead of 90, for example, really reduce your chances that much?). This article focuses on the Dolphins and says UDFAs might be cut before even getting a chance to step foot in training camp. It mentions our Ray Lima as a candidate to be cut without a chance.
This really sucks for UDFAs, some of whom usually make rosters each year. COVID might take away their chance to even try out.
NOTE: I should note that the CB formerly known as Jomal Wiltz - now Jamal Perry - is listed on Miami's active roster. Let's hope he gets a 2nd year on an active roster.
Why does he have to work at Walmart? Didn't he graduate and earn his degree?
