After every draft there is a scramble as NFL teams look to scoop up talent that slipped through the cracks and weren’t selected. While teams may sign a few Undrafted Free Agents (UDFA) or a dozen, each season sees some of these seemingly forgotten young men make the Week 1 53-man rosters of various NFL teams. Here we look at which UDFAs have the best chance to stick with opening day rosters of teams in the NFC North.
2016 NFC North Undrafted Free Agent Predictions
Quinshad Davis, Wide Receiver, North Carolina
Davis is the type of young talent that failed to show consistency during his college career, likely leading to his fall out of the 2016 NFL Draft. Standing 6’4”, Davis offers major size at a position that just suffered a major blow with the retirement of Calvin Johnson. While Davis is no Johnson, he does stand two inches taller than the rest of the wide receiver cast in the Motor City. Davis will need to show progression as camp develops to stick as a long term project for the Lions.
