Undrafted free agents


Recommended Posts

posted at Jungle Talk

C Brandon Newton's 6-2 311 (Hofstra) agent, Joe Linta, has confirmed to KFFL that his client has signed as an undrafted rookie free agent with the Cincinnati Bengals.

Couldn't find a bio on him.

Sportsline listed him as a T and ESPN listed him as a G

i grew up in nebraska and married a girl from kyle larson's tiny hometown. trust me, the guy is a stud. he was actually hoping not to get drafted so he could pick a team to sign with that really needed a punter. i watched all the husker games last year and kyle was the main reason nebraska was able to win some games they probably shouldn't have; he was their best offensive player.

if this news is true, it's a great day for the bengals!

Kyle Larson

P | (6'0", 204, 4.85) | NEBRASKA

Data from Scouts, Inc.

Comments: Larson gets rid of ball quickly, very solid mechanics, soft hands. Good leg strength. Plus athlete for position, will contribute on cover teams. Terrific directional skills, Gets good hangtime on punts when he strikes ball solidly. Excellent job of pinning opponents' deep with accuracy and hangtime on directional attempts. Must improve quickness of approach. Too many punts blocked. Hangtime inconsistent. Must improve consistency. Misses too many attempts off side of foot for top punting prospect. As a junior in 2002, Larson finished 11th in the nation with 43.2 yards per punt. As a senior, he finished seventh with 45.1 yards per attempt. He did not handle kickoff duties at Nebraska, but he is one of the most accurate and strongest punters in college football, and he continues to improve. Larson could be the top punter drafted.

Jeremiah Cockheran

Wide Receiver

College: Hawaii · Year: Sr

HT: 6-0 · WT: 193 · 40: 4.26

Hometown: Fontana, CA

Strengths: Jeremiah has pure speed; he's a real burner. He plays in a run-and-gun offense and is one of the real threats. He has game breaking ability. He's a real terror running after the catch. He's a deep threat. Jeremiah also should really be strong on special team units in the NFL as a gunner or return man.

Weaknesses: Jeremiah has put up terrific numbers but a large part of that could be due to the offense Hawaii runs. Jeremiah also lacks ideal size, which will make scouts wonder if he can make it through a full NFL season healthy, and whether he can beat a jam. He also needs to become a more consistent receiving threat. His route running could use a little upgrade, but it's not that bad.

Bottom Line: Jeremiah has terrific speed, but doesn't have great size, and he drops some balls. He should make a solid special teams player in the NFL. Jeremiah has game breaking ability. He's put up huge numbers, but a large part of that could be to the fact that he plays in a pass happy offense. The ideal situation for Jeremiah would be for him to get into another pass first offense like the Rams, Chiefs or Redskins. Look for Jeremiah to go in the late rounds of the draft, if he gets drafted at all. He needs to show more consistency to get drafted and make an NFL roster.

Doesn't look like we were that aggressive trying to sign the "best of the rest" (and with 11 picks, we didn't have to be). The P and QB make sense, and Young sounds intriguing
