Post Undrafted FA Target List
Here are some guys I'd be targeting when the CBA issue is taken care of:

CB Kendric Burney, North Carolina - my top target, get him in
CB Duenta Williams, North Carolina - surprised neither NC CB was drafted
OT David Mims, Virginia Union - I know some guys here liked him
OLB Kendric Burney, Marshall
C Jake Kirkpatrick, TCU
G Jarriel King, South Carolina
SS Deandre McDaniel, Clemson
WR Ricardo Lockette, Fort Valley State
WR Dane Sanzenbacher, OSU
G Zachary Hurd, UConn
K Kai Forbath, UCLA

Local Kids:
OLB Nick Bellore, Central Michigan - this kid can play
OT Cameron Bradfield, Grand Valley - practice squad target
OLB Eric Gordan, Michigan State
TE Charlie Gantt, Michigan State
TE Ben Thayer, Eastern Michigan
WR Mark Dell, Michigan State

I supposed I could just check but is that a typo or do those guys really have the exact same name?

Also ,I would Add Mark Herzlich

Herzlich would be a nice signing. Burney seems like an Alphonso Smith type

Just one Super Bowl win before I go!

I'm stunned Sanz didn't get selected. Someone is going to get a difference maker.

That being said since they are FA can anyone sign them!?

Orie Lemon will be a steal for whoever gets him. Hopefully we can.

Post Re: Undrafted FA Target List
deaunte williams wasnt drafted because of a broken leg he suffered in there bowl game and couldnt do anything for scouts or play in any allstar games.he is gonna be a steal for someone and is better talent wise then anything we have on our roster.they may bring him in because he can play both sides and the lions staff likes that.and i know we will be signing ol for camp we always do and i like bartholomew at center.i,m gonna post my top 10 prospects at corner and linebacker tonite.its so much better then this year.

It's confirmed, there will be no UDFA signings till the FA period begins... whenever that is.

I was actually surprised that Duenta Williams wasn't drafted in spite of the injury. When healthy, the dude can play and I'd love to see the Lions sign him. As for the other big name undrafted safety, DeAndre McDaniel, I wouldn't touch him. He's too much of a headcase and that's why he dropped. I also wouldn't mind bringing in LB Mark Herzlich or C Tim Barnes.

Herzlich is a favorite of mine and I hope we bring him in but I see him signing with NE. I also like Kris O'Dowd, Mario Fannin and Denuta Williams.

Pat Kirwan's best undrafted players

On opening weekend of the 2010 regular season, there were 59 undrafted free agents on 53-man rosters. A number of those players made huge impacts for their teams.

Undrafted free-agent running back LeGarrette Blount rushed for 1,007 yards, the most by a rookie in 2010. Chris Ivory was pressed into action when injuries to Reggie Bush and Pierre Thomas forced the undrafted rookie running back into the starting lineup for the defending Super Bowl champion Saints. In Week 5, Max Hall's first career start, the undrafted rookie QB led the Cardinals to a shocking upset win over the defending champion Saints. Undrafted cornerback Sam Shields had two interceptions in the Packers' NFC Championship Game win over the Bears.

Could some of this year's undrafted players have similar impacts in the 2011 season?

Here is my list of the top players that are still available after the conclusion of the 2011 NFL Draft, but currently are unable to sign with team due to the lockout:

1. Pat Devlin, QB, Delaware: Devlin was a Penn State transfer who played very well at the Football Championship Subdivision (formerly Division I-AA) level, throwing for 3,032 yards, 22 touchdowns and three interceptions. Devlin has good size (6-3, 225 pounds) and arm strength.

2. Kendric Burney, CB, North Carolina: Burney possesses good coverage ability and plays well against the run, but lacks ideal speed for the position; Burney ran a 4.75-second 40-yard dash at the NFL Scouting Combine.

3. Deandre McDaniel, SS, Clemson: McDaniel had a good 2010 season, recording a team-high four interceptions. A highly touted player entering the draft, McDaniel lacks top-notch speed (4.65-second 40-yard dash at combine) and has trouble in man coverage.

4. Darvin Adams, WR, Auburn: Adams was an early entry player who doesn't have great speed, but does a very good job of catching the ball in traffic.

5. Mark Herzlich, LB, Boston College: If Herzlich would have been available in the 2009 draft, he would have been a top 10 or 15 pick. In May of 2009, Herzlich was diagnosed with a rare form of bone cancer, and after missing the entire season, returned to the field in 2010. Herzlich participated in practice just three times before playing in Boston College's 2010 season opener. He's a strong player (29 bench-press reps at the combine), and is very good at diagnosing plays (his four interceptions are evidence of that ability). He's a special player as far as work habits, and appears to slowly be regaining his speed and quickness.

6. Ian Williams, DT, Notre Dame: Williams was a three-year starter for the Irish. He's very strong (31 bench-press reps at combine), understands leverage, but is just an average pass rusher.

7. Terrence Toliver, WR, LSU: A big receiver (6-4, 214 pounds) with 4.59 speed, Toliver tends to be a body catcher, allowing passes to get to his body rather than his hands. He had a good performance at LSU's pro day.

8. Ricardo Lockette, WR, Fort Valley State: Lockette was one of the fastest players at the combine, running a 4.37-second 40-yard dash. At Fort Valley State, Lockette displayed average hands; he'd make a great catch, then drop an easy one.

9. Orie Lemon, LB, Oklahoma State: Lemon is a strong inside player who can probably only play two downs in the NFL because he lacks coverage speed.

10. Scott Lutrus, LB, Connecticut: Clocked at 4.68 in the 40 at the combine, he runs well for an inside linebacker. However, Lutrus has a history of experiencing stingers.

11. Derrick Locke, RB, Kentucky: At 5-foot-8 and 188 pounds, Locke does not have great size. He averaged 5.3 yards per carry in his final season at Kentucky and is also a good kick returner. In high school, Locke had a 3,000-yard season.

12. Nick Bellore, LB, Central Michigan: Bellore made a ton of tackles for the Chippewas over his college career, with 90 last season and more than 400 total. He looked good in the position drills at the combine and ran a 4.84 40.

13. Joe Lefeged, DB, Rutgers: Lefeged contributed on both defense and special teams for the Scarlet Knights, serving as a returner and also especially adept at blocking kicks (four last season and seven in his college career).

DeAndre McDaniels. Dude's a playmaker back in the secondary, but he's got some character concerns that I think dropped him.
Kendric Burney is another guy I'd like to try out.
Nick Belore, decent backup at worst
David Mims, thought they'd take him instead of Culbreath

Justin Boren is evil incarnate and I want nothing to do with him.

Forward down the field!
