  Bengals | Seven rookies under contract    Mon May 17, 01:06 PM

Cincinnati Bengals fourth-round draft choices DE Cameron Sample, DT Tyler Shelvin and OT D'Ante Smith, fifth-round draft choice PK Evan McPherson, sixth-round draft choices C Trey Hill and RB Chris Evans and seventh-round draft choice DE Wyatt Hubert signed four-year contracts with the Bengals Monday, May 17. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Evans is a hard-charging running back from Michigan who is looking to make the roster as a reserve runner. During his college career for the Wolverines, Evans only started six time in 42 games. He seems like a player who could have a better pro career than he did a college one. Evans is patient as a runner and has burst to and through the hole. As a receiver, Evans is a "catch and go" threat and can make defenders miss in space. We'll watch him in deep dynasty formats.

Footballguys view: Ford has had a cup of coffee in the league. He's strong after the catch and his experience might get him a shot if he impresses in this tryout.

  Vikings | Three draft picks reach deals    Thu May 13, 09:36 PM

Minnesota Vikings fifth-round draft choice WR Ihmir Smith-Marsette, fifth-round draft choice TE Zach Davidson and sixth-round draft choice DT Jaylen Twyman agreed to terms on four-year contracts with the Vikings Thursday, May 13, according to sources. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Smith-Marsette has a nice size/speed combination and can get by defenders with ease. He has "late hands" when passes are incoming, so he doesn't tip off cornerbacks that he's going to make a catch. Smith-Marsette is buried on the depth chart now, but he could develop into a no.3 receiver for the Vikings in the future. Watch him in dynasty formats.

  Cowboys | Four picks agree to terms    Thu May 13, 09:26 PM

Dallas Cowboys fifth-round draft choice WR Simi Fehoko, sixth-round draft choice DT Quinton Bohanna, sixth-round draft choice S Israel Mukuamu and seventh-round draft choice OG Matt Farniok agreed to terms on four-year contracts with the Cowboys Thursday, May 13, according to sources. Financia terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Fehoko is a downfield threat as evidenced by his school record 23.6 yards per catch in 2019. Over 77 percent of his passes went for a first down or a touchdown during his college career at Stanford. Fehoko can run by defenders and is physical at the catch point. We'll watch him in dynasty formats in that high-powered Cowboys offense.

Houston Texans TE Brevin Jordan and DT Roy Lopez both signed four-year rookie contracts Wednesday, May 12. Financial terms of the contracts weren't disclosed.

Footballguys view: Jordan is an athletic tight end who can get open down the seam. He can create large windows for his quarterback and is a player we'll monitor closely as he potentially moves to the top of the Texans depth chart at the tight end position.

  Jets | Five players trying out    Sun May 9, 02:14 PM

Free-agent WRs Trevor Davis (Washington), WR Steven Mitchell Jr. (Texans) and WR Damion Willis (Jaguars) participated in the New York Jets rookie minicamp on a tryout basis. Undrafted free-agent TE Daniel Crawford (Northern Illinois) and DT Mustafa Johnson (Colorado) also tried out for the team.

Footballguys view: Willis is the player to watch here. Undrafted out of Troy in 2019, Willis looked like a player to monitor in deep dynasty formats with the Bengals. He had two starts as a rookie but did not make the team in 2020. Instead, Willis was picked up by the Browns and then released with a failed physical designation. He signed with the Jaguars practice squad late last year and spent about a month on the team. We'll see if he can impress enough at this tryout to earn a chance at a spot with the Jets in the offseason.

  Raiders | Las Vegas adds eight UDFAs    Tue May 4, 12:44 AM

The Las Vegas Raiders signed undrafted free agents RBs Trey Ragas (Louisiana-Lafayette) and Garrett Groshek (Wisconsin), WR Dillon Stoner (Oklahoma State), TE Matt Bushman (BYU), OT Devery Hamilton (Duke), DT Darius Stills (West Virginia), LB Max Richardson (Boston College) and DB TJ Morrison (Stony Brook) on Sunday, May 2.

Footballguys view: Groshek originally went to Madison as a quarterback but converted to running back. He'll try to latch on with the Raiders as a power player. Ragas was a football legend in the state of Louisiana. He has a nose for the end zone and runs with natural instincts and vision. Ragas is a player we'll monitor in crazy deep dynasty formats.

  Falcons | Atlanta adds 18 UDFAs    Mon May 3, 01:44 PM

Undrafted free-agent OT Jack Batho IV (South Dakota School of Mines), DT Zac Dawe (Brigham Young), LB Dorian Etheridge (Louisville), OG Bryce Hargrove (Pittsburgh), RB Caleb Huntley (Ball State), LB Eli Howard (Texas Tech), S Dwayne Johnson (San Diego State), LB Kobe Jones (Mississippi State), CB Marcus Murphy (Mississippi State), OG Ryan Neuzil (Appalachian State), WR Antonio Nunn (Buffalo), S JR Pace (Northwestern), LB Alani Pututau (Adams State), TE John Raine (Northwestern), OG Joe Sculthorpe (North Carolina State), OT Keion Smith (Fayetteville State), LB Erroll Thompson (Mississippi State) and WR Austin Trammell (Rice) agreed to terms with the Atlanta Falcons Monday, May 3. Terms of the contracts were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Huntley is an interesting running back to monitor. He's a strong runner with a low center of gravity and plenty of leg drive. Huntley wasn't proven as a receiver out of the backfield but he gives great effort anytime he touches the ball. The Falcons need running back help and Huntley could work his way onto the 53-man roster but as a priority free agent he's more likely to land on the practice squad.
