-Patrick Devlin, 6-3/225, Deleware
Some draft analysts thought Devlin would be a mid-round pick but he went undrafted. After transferring to Deleware from Penn State, Devlin excelled against I-AA competition. He completed 261-of-384 attempts for 22 touchdowns in 2010. He threw just three interceptions.
-Jeff Van Camp, 6-5/218, Florida Atlantic
According to the Pensacola News Journal, the Dolphins called Van Camp in the second round of the draft
and told him they’d pick him in the sixth or seventh round if he was available. So Miami has shown some interest, it would seem. Van Camp completed 57.2 percent of his passes for 2,451 yards in 2010. He threw 17 touchdowns and 13 interceptions. He’s got intangibles but physical attributes seem to be an issue.
-Damien Berry, 5-10/211, Miami
A former defensive back, Berry switched to running back midway through his career with the Hurricanes and immediately showed promise. He averaged 6.6 yards per carry his junior year, then ran for 899 yards and 5 touchdowns in his senior season. He didn’t receive a great draft grade and was viewed as a late-round pick at best, but Berry could have some upside given he’s relatively new to the position.
-Derrick Locke, 5-8/188, Kentucky
Locke would likely rank near the top of any list of undrafted players. That he wasn’t drafted came as a surprise given most analysts projected him as a mid-round pick at the latest. He ran a 4.4 in the 40-yard dash at the NFL combine and averaged 5.34 yards per carry during his senior season at Kentucky, where he ran for 887 yards.
-Weslye Saunders, 6-5/270, South Carolina
Saunders at one point seemed on track to becoming a high-round draft pick but a series of the off-the-field problems hurt his stock tremendously. For one, South Carolina dismissed him after he allegedly lied to NCAA investigators who were investigating an impermissible benefits case involving agents. Then he suffered a foot injury that precluded him from working out with teams. The talent is there, though.
-Zach Hurd, 6-7/316, Connecticut
One of many undrafted players who was probably very surprised he wasn’t drafted, Hurd was a tackle in college but might find his home at guard in the NFL. He has ideal size and good strength but sometimes was exposed against more athletic defensive ends.
-Kristofer O’Dowd, 6-4/304, USC
Seen as a lower-round center prospect, O’Dowd’s best traits might have been those that couldn’t be measured by a stopwatch or in a weight room. Intelligence and work ethic won’t be questioned but he’ll have to prove that he can physically handle the rigors of the NFL.
-Jake Kirkpatrick, 6-3/305, TCU
Kirkpatrick in 2010 received the Rimington Award – given annually to the nation’s best center – yet he seemed to be an afterthought during the NFL Draft. Even so, it’s probably safe to say there isn’t a shortage of teams that are interested in inviting him to their camps. He was one of the best lineman in the country throughout his collegiate career and could make teams regret on passing him in the draft.
-David Mims, 6-8/331, Virginia Union
Mims is a load physically and he’s versatile, too – he can play either guard or tackle. His stock appeared to be rising approaching the draft but he could be among the most pursued undrafted rookies.
