    But now we are talking about an undrafted FA. What does it cost to take a flyer on him? 200K? I would love to take that chance and have him prove to himself and everyone else that he DOES have what it takes.

    Maybe 350k-400K with everyone wanting him... and that's if he makes the roster(which he will). Little price for at worst a huge ST contributor.
    I believe!

    That and a leader. Take the worst things that can happen to a team (losing season or whatever?), he's seen worse (Cancer). He lived through it, learned from it, became a better man, and lives it daily.

    Sheesh, sounds like I know the guy, which I don't. Just going by the interviews I've seen and the articles I've read. My gut feeling just says there could be no negative thing that could come from having this man on our roster.

    Mark Herzlich OLB 6’4 245
    Jarriel King OT/G 6’5 320 5.05 40
    Derrick Locke RB 5’8 190 4.4 40
    Darren Evans RB 6’0 225 4.55 40

    I like all these players and Terrance Tolliver WR. All the weapons the Rams bring in, all the better. Make some of these WR's earn a spot on the team. More compitition the better.

    I think all 32 teams passed on him because he ran a 4.9 something 40 yard dash almost 5.0. He is a 4 pillers type guy though. Might make a good practice sqaud player until he gets healed up 100%.

    Re: Undrafted Rookies

    There are a few who were mentioned who I'd give a shot to, including Martin Parker, Derrick Locke and Mark Herzlich.

    Two others I would bring in:

    Pat Devlin, QB, Delaware
    He's a small school prospect, but has good size (6'3, 225) and could be good enough to win the #3 job or, at least, be developed on the practice squad as a future backup.

    John Clay, RB, Wisconsin
    The scouts obviously didn't like his lack of speed, but he was very productive at Wisconsin.

    I thought I read about Devlin having a pretty poor pro day, perhaps the reason he was pushed out of the draft. Any word on that, because I was also intrigued by that name still being available.

    Re: Undrafted Rookies

    I read about that, but what's the harm in bringing him in? If his Pro Day is an indication of his skills, you cut him. If it was just an off day, who knows? Maybe he can make the team.

    Re: Undrafted Rookies

    I'm not going to say Herzlich, based on the same opinion I've had about him for months now. IMO, he's a 3-4 ILB at the NFL level. I don't see the athleticism to stay as a 4-3 OLB out of him. His production dropped off in 2010, he was far from impressive at the Senior Bowl, and his combine numbers were among the worst at his position. Aside from his great personnel story, I just don't see enough recovery back to previous form to justify the roster spot. Hope he proves me wrong.

    My top undrafted FA targets would probably be...

    Jeron Johnson (SS, Boise State)
    Zach Hurd (OG, UConn)
    Darren Evans (RB, VA Tech)
    Ian Williams (DT, Notre Dame)
    Terrence Toliver (WR, LSU)
