Undrafted Free Agent Signings

Just a quick post of some UDFA signings for each Florida team here. Picks in Italics are my "players to watch" from this list, or players who I at least feel were good signings to at least try.


WR Davone Bess (Hawaii) - I really love this signing, Bess can be a great WR for us.
LB Kelly Poppinga (BYU)
T Mike Byrne (Delaware)
T Dan Gore (Boise State)
QB Jayson Foster (Georgia Southern)


QB Paul Smith (Tulsa)
WR Adam Bishop (Nevada)
DE Alex Boston (Florida State)
TE Chris Brown (Tennessee)
WR Rudy Burgess (Arizona State)
FB Anthony Catrone (Maine)
WR Clyde Edwards (Grambling)
CB Isaiah Gardner (Maryland)
CB Michael Grant (Arkansas)
WR Jeron Harvey (Houston)
DT Theo Horrocks (Vanderbilt)
OL Drew Miller (Florida)
LB Lamar Myles (Louisville)
CB Brian Witherspoon (Stillman)

Tampa Bay

DB Jonathan Hefney (Tennessee)
DT Tywain Myles (Tarleton St.)
DT Chris Bradwell (Troy)
CB Elbert Mack (Troy)
K Chris Gould (Virginia)
WR Amarri Jackson (USF) tryout
T Jared Carnes (USF) tryout
T Walt Walker (USF) tryout

Other Florida College Notables:

Redskins T Shannon Boatman (Florida State)

Titans S Tony Joiner (Florida)
Cardinals G Carlton Medder (Florida)

Vikings DT Leger Douzable (Central Florida)

Texans WR Darnell Jenkins (Miami)
Giants OL Andrew Bain (Miami)
Bills DT Teraz McCray (Miami)
Vikings QB Kyle Wright (Miami)
Browns WR Lance Leggett (Miami)

90% of all of these guys will probably either be cut, buried in the depth charts, put on the developmental list or used with the practice squad, but it's still interesting to see who goes where. Besides, to be a Super Bowl contender, you have to have a complete roster top to bottom. Even the quality of a team's practice squad is important.

Everywhere I go, I keep hearing fantastic things about Bess.

Maybe that can ease the wound of bypassing Andre Caldwell.
