The Patriots always seem to find a gem in their Undrafted Free Agent classes, be it Dane Fletcher, Ben-Jarvus Green-Ellis, or many more. Which of this years UDFA’s will make the cut?
Our best bet to make the 53-man roster would be Iowa linebacker Jeff Tarpinian. He started as a special-teams ace for the Hawkeyes, becoming an absolute menace on kickoff coverage. We feel that he could be a low-price, high-energy guy that could replace Tracy White if he is deemed expendable.
Here is “Tarp” in action (Fast forward to :40):
