Several former SEC standouts make impact undrafted free agent list

BY foxsports • May 9, 2015

The NFL is filled with contributing players that never heard their name called on draft day. Which players entering the league this season have the best shot of joining the list of undrafted NFL stars? 

ESPN's Scout Inc. recently compiled a list of their top 10 choices, which included a number of former SEC players.

Terrance Magee, former LSU running back: signed with the Baltimore Ravens

Magee never stared with the Tigers, as he came off the bench his entire career and had only 226 carries in four years at LSU, but he had an excellent average of 5.9 yards per rush with those carries. The Ravens zone-blocking scheme fits the one cut running style of Magee. If injuries occur at running back, don't be shocked if Magee has an Arain Foster type impact, as the Ravens only have Justin Forsett and Buck Allen in front of him.

Cody Prewitt, former Ole Miss safety: signed with the Tennessee Titans

Somehow the twice-named All-American leader of the Landshark defense didn't get drafted this year. The Titans moved quickly to sign Prewitt, as they are currently thin at safety following the release of Bernard Pollard and the offseason surgery of Michael Griffin. Prewitt brings a vast amount of toughness and has the intangibles and leadership to make an impact right away for the Titans.

Leon Orr, former Florida Gator defensive linemen: signed with the Oakland Raiders

Orr was sent home from a game and subsequently kicked off the team in the process last season. That surely played a part in no one trusting him enough to use a draft pick on him because he possess NFL talent on the field. If the Raiders can get the huge lineman to focus and keep his nose clean off the field, they could have found an undrafted gem in Orr.
