Justin Coleman, CB, Tennessee

The 5-11 Coleman put up impressive numbers at the combine and has a good shot to make the squad as a special teams player.

Davaris Daniels, WR, Notre Dame

Daniels sat out all of last year after being suspended for academic fraud. The 6-1, 201-pound Daniels is an interesting talent but he’s behind the curve a bit after missing a whole year.

Christian Dudzik, DB, North Dakota State

The 5-10, 185-pound Dudzik is obviously undersized and will have a tough road ahead of him if he wants to catch on.

Tom Farniok, C, Iowa State

The 6-3, 301-pound Farniok is not particularly impressive physically.

Anthony Harris, S, Virginia

The 6-1, 183-pound Harris is an instinctive, fast-reacting player who lacks stand-out ability. Nevertheless, he is seen as someone who has a chance to be a factor at the next level.

Taylor Heinike, QB, Old Dominion

Not a big quarterback and doesn’t have a big arm, but people like his leadership and his quick release. The Vikings may try to develop him as Teddy Bridgewater’s backup.

Jordan Leslie, WR, BYU

A tall receiver who ran a 4.41 40 at BYU pro day. The next Adam Thielen?

Gavin Lutman, WR, Pittsburg State

Another taller receiver.

Blake Renaud, LB, Boise State

A linebacker who played at Boise State.

Bobby Vardaro, G, Boston College

Draft Insider said:

"Vardaro was productive and durable during his time at Boston College but is an average athlete with poor size/speed numbers. His tenacity and run blocking ability could help him catch on as a backup lineman."
