Any Undrafted FA's worth keeping?

Has anyone found any worth keeping??

I've just been mindlessly deleting all of them because of the "we're taking over" bug. But the thought crossed my mind that keeping a couple of them would actually be more realistic, if any of them actually develop into anything good, that is.

Kept a FB one year my starter was on the way out, turned out to be a B potential in the 70s so not to bad.
Most of the time they are utter rubbish but you can tell after a Preseason game or two by looking at some of the unlocked stats. E.g MLB with speed in the 50s is never going to be good.

Re: Any Undrafted FA's worth keeping?

So far out of 3 Franchises (only in season 1 in any given 'chise) I have only seen 2 UDFA worth keeping.

One was a WR, his Speed/Agility/Accel weren't great (mid-to-upper 80's), but he had a good CIT rating (85 as a rookie) and was a decently big WR (6'3" 220 lbs). He was a 69 OVR with a B potential.

The other one was a SS, he was terrible in Man Coverage and couldn't tackle for crap, but he had good Zone Coverage (79) and Pursuit (83). I think he was 65-68 OVR with C potential.

Only one I ever kept was a RG. 67 OVR with B Pot.

Only because I didn't have a back up for Jahri. If it wasn't for that, he would of been released.

I'm guessing, but I'd say at least 80% aren't worth keeping, but I've had the occasional FA who had a low OVR but had great ratings for his position. IIRC I had a DE who was 80+ in all the relevant stuff (BSH PMV, FMV, tackle) but was like a high 60s OVR.

I've only kept one.

6'8 277 pound tight end

73 speed upper 80s strength

Low catch rating...like upper 60s

half decent blocking attributes

59 overall C potential

he's my backup tight end, useful in goalline situations.

Re: Any Undrafted FA's worth keeping?

Most of the UDFA's are terrible but every once in a while you'll find a keeper. For example, the last preseason I went through I found 2 CB's with B potential. Just finished that season and one of them progressed from a 65 ovr to a 73, the other one went from 63 to 67. Also in this last free agency class I saw a 6'6 275lb LOLB who was rated 77 ovr and just 22 years old. Looked a little further into him and found out he was an UDFA. I'm stacked at LB so I didn't sign him and find out what his potential was, but he did progress from a 72 to a 77 that offseason. So there are a few hidden gems out there to be uncovered.
