    Did Alvin Bailey have some major character issues or are you just higher on him than most? He seems to be the outlier on this list with everyone else being mid rounders to UDFAs on your board.

    He doesn't have any character flaws. I think the league just missed on him, although I was probably higher on him than most. Still, there's no way this kid warrants going undrafted. It wouldn't surprise me if he's a household name before it's over with.

    He excelled at the combine, and has been a rock for Arkansas in terms of proving his durability.... starting 38 straight games beginning as a redshirt freshman. Furthermore, he has experience playing both sides as Petrino's offense actually switches sides along the offensive line varying the strength of the formation, which is an extremely rare concept.

    I think he fell because he needs to shore up in pass protection. I don't think he's a natural knee bender and it causes him to struggle with his technique. Arkansas offensive lineman have typically been extremely poorly coached during the Petrino era. Bailey should benefit after he gets quality coaching for the first time in his career. I think he'll develope into a starter quickly for the Seahawks. I've always seen a lot of talent in Alvin Bailey.

    I believe once he fell to a certain point, teams that had mid-round grades on him felt like they could get him into camp as a UDFA.

    Shocked that Fauria went undrafted. Surprised by the NFL's overall take on the TE position. Gragg in the 7th?

    Reddick and Thomas have a good chance at making that roster.

    For whatever reason the NEPatriotsDraft list seemed to lack Chad Bumphis on it. You're right, he's a standout signing.
