EARTH CITY, Mo. -- The St. Louis Rams added more bodies to the roster Monday afternoon, officially announcing the addition of 15 undrafted free-agent rookies.
We'll dive further into the list this week for potential hidden gems, but here's the team's newest additions:
TE Alex Bayer, Bowling Green
CB Jarrid Bryant, South Dakota
S Avery Cunningham, Central Michigan
WR Austin Franklin, New Mexico
DT Deantre Harlan, Bacone
LB Aaron Hill, Minnesota
FB Kadeem Jones, Western Kentucky
T Emmanuel Mccray, Mississippi
LB Johnny Millard, Cal Poly State
CB Marcus Roberson, Florida
T Abasi Salimu, Nicholls State
WR Jamaine Sherman, East Texas Baptist
RB Julius “Trey” Watts, Tulsa
DT Ethan Westbrooks, West Texas A&M
LB Tavarius Wilson, North Alabama
In taking stock of this list, the name that jumps out the most is Roberson. The highly-touted former Gator cornerback was considered a possible Day 2 pick but apparently slipped out of the draft because of some off-field questions and injury issues.
If that sounds familiar for the Rams it's because it is. They took a much bigger risk on Janoris Jenkins in 2012. Jenkins was also a former Gators corner who came with some off-field questions.
Roberson doesn't bring the talent or potential of Jenkins, but could turn out to be a steal if he can pull it all together. According to Todd McShay and the fine people at Scouts, Inc., Roberson was the second-best player available amongst undrafted free agents.
