NFL 5 1580 Top undrafted 2012 NFL Free Agents 30952682 NFL

Once the seventh round ends with the selection of Mr. Irrelevant and the NFL Draft is complete, the next phase of scouting commences. Teams begin scrambling to sign the best of the undrafted players and every year, there are future stars among this group who begin their NFL careers as rookie free agents. Who is the next Victor Cruz or Arian Foster? FOXSports.com looks at the most notable undrafted players of 2012.

NFL 5 1580 Top undrafted 2012 NFL Free Agents 30956272 Leonard Johnson, CB, Iowa State Leonard+Johnson%2C+CB%2C+Iowa+State NFL

Johnson is undersized (5-foot-10, 196 pounds), but as physical as any other cornerback in the 2012 NFL Draft. He would be a perfect fit for a Cover-2 team that likes to press at the line of scrimmage. | UPDATE: Signed by Buccaneers

NFL 5 1580 Top undrafted 2012 NFL Free Agents 30956274 Tauren Poole, RB, Tennessee Tauren+Poole%2C+RB%2C+Tennessee NFL

Poole has the skills to be a solid third down back at the next level, but he could be more patient with the ball in his hands to set up his blockers. His quickness stood out during the East-West Shrine game, but he will need to hold up in pass protection to be that third down back in the NFL. | UPDATE: Signed by Panthers

NFL 5 1580 Top undrafted 2012 NFL Free Agents 30956268 Chase Minnifield, CB, Virgina Chase+Minnifield%2C+CB%2C+Virgina NFL

Minnifield is a two-time first team All ACC selection but missed the Cavaliers’ bowl game with a knee injury. He also missed the Scouting Combine with an ankle injury, and then pulled up with a hamstring at his Pro Day. Despite the poor timing of his injuries, Minnifield has second to third round talent. | UPDATE: Signed by Redskins

NFL 5 1580 Top undrafted 2012 NFL Free Agents 30956275 Kellen Moore, QB, Boise State: Kellen+Moore%2C+QB%2C+Boise+State%3A+ NFL

Some will be surprised to see the most successful quarterback in college football history (50 wins) go undrafted, but he lacks the physical tools that scouts drool over. His three losses in college came at a combined point differential of just 7 points. He was a mere seven total points from being undefeated in college! | UPDATE: Signed by Lions

NFL 5 1580 Top undrafted 2012 NFL Free Agents 30952680 Dwight Jones, WR, UNC Dwight+Jones%2C+WR%2C+UNC NFL

Jones had 85 receptions in 2010, but could have easily topped the 100-reception milestone had it not been for multiple drops on what should have been routine catches. He is lazy as a blocker on the outside, but if someone can keep him interested in the game, he has the tools to be a starter in the NFL. | UPDATE: Signed by Texans

NFL 5 1580 Top undrafted 2012 NFL Free Agents 30956269 Chris Polk. RB, Washington Chris+Polk.+RB%2C+Washington NFL

Polk has the production and skillset on par with any other running back taken on Day 2 or later in the NFL Draft. But a degenerative shoulder issue most likely scared teams away. Despite the injury, Polk was able to start 36 consecutive games for the Huskies and he amassed over 4,000 yards on the ground. | UPDATE: Signed by Eagles

NFL 5 1580 Top undrafted 2012 NFL Free Agents 30956270 Vontaze Burfict, LB, Arizona State Vontaze+Burfict%2C+LB%2C+Arizona+State NFL

Burfict quite possibly just completed the longest slide in NFL Draft history. Once considered a first round prospect, his underwhelming performance at the Scouting Combine, followed by revelations of a failed drug test, sealed his fate as an undrafted free agent. With that said, you put on the game tape and you see flashes of brilliance. | UPDATE: Signed by Bengals

NFL 5 1580 Top undrafted 2012 NFL Free Agents 30956271 Deangelo Peterson, TE, LSU Deangelo+Peterson%2C+TE%2C+LSU NFL

Peterson is an overgrown wide receiver, but his inconsistent hands are probably why he went undrafted. He can run, but Peterson must prove he can be a reliable third down target if he is to find a home in the NFL. | UPDATE: Signed by Rams

NFL 5 1580 Top undrafted 2012 NFL Free Agents 30956273 Mike Brewster, C, Ohio State Mike+Brewster%2C+C%2C+Ohio+State NFL

Brewster was rated higher than his arch rival from Michigan, David Polk, but went undrafted. Brewster isn’t going to wow anyone physically, but he can be a serviceable center in the NFL. The simple fact that he plays the center position shows he’s likely versatile enough to make a final 53-man roster. | UPDATE: Signed by Jaguars

NFL 5 1580 Top undrafted 2012 NFL Free Agents 30952681 James Brown, OT, Troy James+Brown%2C+OT%2C+Troy NFL

Brown started at left tackle the past three years at Troy and I am shocked that a team didn’t secure him with a late round pick. He is a solid run blocker who comes out of his stance with a burst ,and he rarely slides off his block. I see him fitting best as a guard in the NFL, but regardless, someone will get a nice player in Brown. | UPDATE: Signed by Bears
