Florida football has four players off the 2022 roster that went undrafted in last week’s NFL Draft but signed on with a team as an undrafted free agents. The odds are stacked against UDFAs from making the 53-man roster come September, but last season 23% of the players on a 53-man roster were undrafted during their draft season.
With that in mind, Brenton Cox, Trey Dean, Rashad Torrence, and Richard Gouraige will try and beat the odds and still be in the NFL once the season starts.
We handicap their chances to try and predict who will stick around and who might be looking at the XFL or USFL to play their professional football.
Florida Football Undrafted Free Agent: Brenton Cox
Coming into the year, there was talk that he could go in the first round. Even after his dismissal from Florida last season, Cox was one of the surprises to be undrafted.
What seemed to doom Cox was a pedestrian NFL Combine and Pro Day that couldn’t convince teams he was worth the draft pick, given his past baggage and dismissal from Georgia and Florida.
The talent is there; if he can unlock it, he can be on the roster of the Packers. But considering Green Bay spent a first-round pick on Lukas Van Ness and a fourth-round pick on Colby Wooden, there might be too much of a log jam at the position to truly break through.
