Ranking NFL's top undrafted free agents

Wydermyer was the first-round tight end in way-too-early 2022 mock drafts after the last spring and summer.

11. TE Jalen Wydermyer (Bills)

Vilain was a four-star recruit and the No. 5 weak-side defensive end in the 2017 class behind only Jaelan Phillips, Chase Young, Joshua Kaindoh and K'Lavon Chaisson.

10. EDGE Luiji Vilain (Vikings)

The Eagles have like 40 running backs on the roster, which is why Brooks is further down this list than, individually, he should be. This is a human being with an incredibly unshakable equilibrium.

9. RB Kennedy Brooks (Eagles)

Dixon was that dude at Nicholls State. He had over 1,000 yards receiving twice and caught at least seven touchdowns in each of his last four seasons in college.

8. WR Dai'Jean Dixon (Saints)

Buffalo loaded the defensive line during free agency, signing the likes of Tim Settle, Daquan Jones, Jordan Phillips and inside-out rusher Shaq Lawson. What didn't the Bills add? A penetrating three technique to be the primary backup to ascending penetrator Ed Oliver.

7. DT Prince Emili (Bills)

Flowers landing in Indianapolis should come as no surprise, as the Colts under GM Chris Ballard have been an organization that adores freaky athletes more than most.

6. CB Dallis Flowers (Colts)

Evan Engram. Dan Arnold. Chris Manhertz. Luke Farrell. That's the Jaguars tight-end depth chart at the moment. The coaches may not say it right now, but there are jobs available at that position.

5. TE Gerrit Prince (Jaguars)

Weatherford was the discount Kyle Hamilton in this class. Identical size and a similar workout to go along with comparable versatility on film, I'm not sure how and why Weatherford wasn't selected.

4. S Sterling Weatherford (Colts)

Saquon Barkley will begin the 2022 season healthy. How long he can remain healthy is another story. Beyond him, the Giants have Matt Breida, Gary Brightwell, and two former undrafted free agents signed by the previous regime in the backfield.

3. RB Jashaun Corbin (Giants)

Ross' 2021 film, after returning from spinal fusion surgery, was solid. Not spectacular. Not he-should-go-undrafted brutal. Solid. And at a hair under 6-4 and 205 pounds, he has a towering, somewhat lanky frame that helps him win consistently above his head.

2. WR Justyn Ross (Chiefs)

Goodrich had a case as the lightest-footed outside cornerback in this draft class yet still went undrafted. Suddenness and elite change-of-direction ability are central to quality play at the position.

1. CB Mario Goodrich (Eagles)
