Adrien Cole LB Louisiana Tech
Trevor Coston S Maine
Terriun Crump WR Western Illinois
Britton Golden WR West Texas A&M
A.J. Greene T Albany
Jeremy Jones S Wayne State

The player of note who has some notable YouTube highlights is DT Ronnie Cameron from Old Dominion. Cameron flashes some strong one gap DT ability against lower competition, but the burst, hustle and athleticism is evident. We’ll see how he fair with a step up in competition. Other notable signings are Adrien Cole from La-Tech who seems to fit in the role as a weak-side linebacker or strong side prospect, as well as James Brown the OG from Troy. Brown was named one of the top undrafted free agents in this recent Yahoo Sports article. He was given a third round grade by some scouts and seems to fit into the Bears’ zone blocking scheme that they run under Tice. At first glance all four are the ones to keep an eye on during camp and the pre-season games to see if they can battle to remain on the 53-man roster.
