Although they weren't among the 256 players drafted in the 2014 NFL Draft, undrafted free agents still provide value. There was a lot of talent among the undrafted players this year and a lot of these guys will get a chance to prove themselves this preseason. That said, here are the 10 undrafted rookies to keep an eye on this preseason.
One of the best guards in the draft, it was quite surprising to see Anthony Steen go undrafted. Steen has the talent to start, and the opportunity is there for him in Arizona.
Although he didn't quite live up to expectations while at Alabama, Adrian Hubbard definitely has NFL-level talent. Hubbard is a physical beast, and with the Packers, he could shine.
George Uko has a lot of potential as a pass-rushing lineman, and his powerful style is a good fit in New Orleans. Uko has the size and talent to make an impact, but he must prove he is good enough to crack New Orleans' defensive line rotation.
It was very surprising to see Shayne Skov go undrafted, especially considering how productive he was at Stanford. That said, he will have a chance to stick as a backup in San Francisco if everything goes well, and he has the talent to one day be a starter.
Although he won't start for the Seahawks, Jackson Jeffcoat could be very productive in a situational role. Jeffcoat is a great pass-rusher, and with some improvement in the run game, he's a future starter.
Dion Bailey is going to find a spot in the NFL due to his hard-working, physical style of play, and he can be a solid spot starter. Bailey isn't afraid to make a big hit, and the Seahawks really like his game.
A perfect H-back, Gator Hoskins will fit right in with the Dolphins. Hoskins isn't a star, but in a role that gives him plenty of short passes, Hoskins will be productive.
A first-round talent who fell out of the draft because of injury concerns, Antonio Richardson is out to prove himself as a starter. Richardson is extremely powerful and he plays with very quick feet. Richardson is a great bet to stick in the NFL.
Disruptive as a pass-rusher, and improving as a run-stuffer, Kelcy Quarles was another surprise undrafted player. Quarles is underrated because he played with Jadeveon Clowney at South Carolina, but he has the talent to star.
Far and away my favorite undrafted player, Brandon Coleman has big NFL potential. Standing at 6-foot-6, Coleman is essentially a slimmer tight end,and he is extremely dangerous in the red zone. In the right offense with the right quarterback, Coleman has No. 1 receiver potential.

There is a report out that the NFL may begin looking into the gloves that wide receivers wear, and whether they're too tacky. This is a joke, right? Read More
