Baylor Football Undrafted Free Agent List

New, 4 comments

Close observers of the NFL know that the end of the official Draft doesn't end the talent acquisition process for teams looking to get better; after the Draft itself ends, those players that were eligible for it and went undrafted become free agents that are free to sign with whatever teams they wish. Past notable UDFA signings include QBs Tony Romo, Jeff Garcia, Warren Moon, and Kurt Warner, WR Wes Welker, return man Joshua Cribbs, DT Pat Williams, LB James Harrison, C Jeff Saturday, RB Priest Holmes, and TE Antonio Gates. Undrafted players start signing almost immediately after the Draft, and there are several notable players in this year's crop. Baylor fans should be particularly familiar with Washington RB Chris Polk, Houston QB Case Keenum, and Texas A&M WR Jeff Fuller. This year's group also includes the controversial LB Vontaze Burfict of Arizona State, who fell harder and faster in the pre-Draft process than any player I've ever seen.

Several Baylor players either hope to or already have signed on with NFL teams in the next few days. Below is a list of signings that have occurred already of former Baylor players that I will update as the weekend goes on.

DL Tracy Robertson -- Houston Texans

LB Elliot Coffey -- Denver Broncos

DL Nicolas Jean-Baptiste -- Baltimore Ravens

With OG Robert T. Griffin having been drafted by the New York Jets in the 6th Round, I believe the only Baylor player left on the UDFA list (that I know of) is RB Isaac Williams, a little-used transfer RB. His measureables looked good at Baylor's Pro Day, and it only takes one team deciding that he's worth it.
