Joe Lefeged tops undrafted FAs
2011 undrafted free agents have plenty to offer NFL teams
Undrafted free agents have become casualties of the NFL lockout -- unable to have contact with teams or sign contracts -- and will remain in limbo until the league's owners and players agree on a new collective bargaining agreement (or the lockout is lifted).
Which players will generate the most interest when they can be signed? Here's a look at the top 40 undrafted free agents in Scouts Inc.'s 2011 prospect rankings and what they have to offer NFL teams.
1. Joe Lefeged, S, Rutgers (Scouts Inc. grade: 73)
Lefeged possesses a nice combination of size and straight-line speed, and the range, discipline and toughness to contribute as a sub-package safety and special-teams player early in his career. He also has the ability to develop into a starting strong safety in time.
