Joe Lefeged tops undrafted FAs
2011 undrafted free agents have plenty to offer NFL teams
Undrafted free agents were among the biggest victims of the NFL lockout, as they were unable to have contact with teams or sign contracts while owners and players worked out a new collective bargaining agreement.
However, with free agency set to begin this week, that state of limbo is ending and undrafted players will finally know where they're headed.
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. Those who have signed contracts are noted.
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 skills and potential to develop into a starting strong safety in time.
