That doesn’t mean that the search for undrafted talent is over, there was a feeding frenzy amongst several undrafted players. Players like Oregon running back LeGarrette Blount being snatched up seconds after the draft had ended by the San Francisco 49ers Tennessee Titans.
There’s always a diamond in the rough; just ask the undrafted Denver Broncos poster boys linebacker Wesley Woodyard or better yet, legendary wide receiver Rod Smith.
Currently there are an endless amount of prospects out there.
At least one being homegrown, Vic Lombardi of KCNC’s CBS4 is reporting that the Broncos are close to signing Colorado University tight end Riar Geer.
While West Viginia University Buzz is reporting via twitter that the Broncos have signed wide receiver Alric Arnett.
Finally a running back, Oklahoma’s Chris Brown via Ed Thompson of Scout.com’s twitter.
Young defensive tackle talent out of Mizzou Jaron Baston via coach Pinkel’s twitter account.
A whole lotta UDFA’s via here.
