The Bolts make a living by bringing in undrafted free agents into the system and developing them into prime time talent. We have brought in players like Antonio Gates, Stephen Cooper, Seyi Ajirotutu, Malcom Floyd, and Stephen Cooper. Even though AJ is constantly criticized, there is one thing that he has been able to do, find some treasures from the undrafted crowd.
Players should want to join our squad since we have such a great track record of getting these guys in and developing them into players. Let’s take a look at a couple of the guys that are available:
Joseph Lefeged is a safety out of Rutgers and is listed by many as the top undrafted free agent. We already drafted a couple of defensive backs, but with Bob Sanders on the team, you never know how long he will last so we can always use depth at the position. Lefeged is a special teams star and all of you guys just saw how are draft just went and also saw last season’s special teams unit. We never can have too many special teams players here.
Going into the draft, we were looking to add some players in at outside linebacker and we left without drafting one. Mark Herzlich out of Boston College may be a good linebacker to target. He can compete for a spot and he can also contribute on special teams.
AJ is probably looking through the list of players and is ready to make the call as soon as the free agency period starts.
