A recent Bleacher Report article went through each NFL team and predicted an undrafted free agent who could make the final roster.
The Buffalo Bills seemingly picked up some great talent in the 2018 NFL Draft, but that event is not the only way to find young talent.
The process of bringing in undrafted free agents is not new and remains a valuable way to find talent that may have wrongfully been passed over in the draft.
The Bills started the process by signing 12 such players.
It is nice to see some major programs represented on that list. Sometimes those schools are so deep in talent that top players aren’t able to show off their abilities the same way as if they were the face of the team at a smaller school.
That may end up bring true for Levi Wallace, who was chosen by Bleacher Report’s Brent Sobleski as the UDFA most likely to make the Bills final roster. Sobleski went through every team in the article.
Wallace was a walk-on at Alabama and ended up playing in every game during the 2017 season at arguably the hardest program to walk-on to in the country. If he was able to achieve that goal, his chances of essentially walking-on to the Bills are in his favor.
The fact Wallace wasn’t drafted may have some fans wondering if there is something wrong with him that caused teams to keep passing, but it may be a matter of teams simply not ranking him high on their boards. And considering we all know teams don’t exactly hit 1.000 in terms of drafting, this is not a negative reflection on Wallace.
He also plays a position that features a rotation and allows him to play on special teams. There are currently eight cornerbacks listed on the team’s roster, so Wallace will get his shot.
