UFL Draft Results Include Mark Herzlich, Derrick Locke, Mario Fannin

The complete list of picks from the Monday night UFL Draft features a few names that also appeared on the unofficial list of NFL undrafted free agents, most notably Boston College Eagles LB Mark Herzlich and Kentucky Wildcats RB Derrick Locke. While those players are more likely to try and make their way into a NFL training camp, they now have a fallback plan, at least.

Georgia Southern Eagles RB Adrian Peterson was also selected, as were a handful of players from SEC schools -- including Mississippi Rebels QB Jeremiah Masoli. The ACC put picks in six rounds. I think Virginia Cavaliers OLB Clint Ingram might be the most prominent. Up for VERY VIGOROUS DEBATE.

And just for funsies, here's the list of picks made by former Atlanta Falcons coach Jerry Glanville (yes, that Cecil Newton is Cam's brother):

1. Hartford Colonials - Jerrod Johnson | QB | Texas A&M

6. Hartford Colonials - Kurt Quarterman | G | Louisville

11. Hartford Colonials - Cecil Newton Jr. | C | Tennessee State

16. Hartford Colonials - Ricky Henry | G | Nebraska 

22. Hartford Colonials - Phillip Tanner | RB | Middle Tennessee State

27. Hartford Colonials - Ervin Baldwin | DE | Michigan State

32. Hartford Colonials - Greg Smith | TE | Texas

37. Hartford Colonials - Colby Whitlock | DT | Texas Tech

42. Hartford Colonials - Jonathan Lewis | DT | Virginia Tech

47. Hartford Colonials - Keith Grennan | DE | Eastern Washington

NFL Undrafted Free Agents List Includes UGA, Georgia Tech, Fort Valley State Players

The list of 2011 undrafted free agents features a handful of Peach State prospects representing three different schools. The biggest name on the list of players who missed the NFL Draft comes from the smallest institution: WR Ricardo Lockette of Fort Valley State fame, who produced one of the five fastest 40 times at the 2011 NFL Combine. He's a track star who hasn't fully shown that he has pro football skills, but somebody (OAKLAND) will give him a call.

The three Georgia Bulldogs players listed by the NFL and hoping to join A.J. Green, Justin Houston, Akeem Dent, Clint Boling, Kris Durham and Shaun Chapas in the league: DB Vance Cuff, DL DeMarcus Dobbs and OL Josh Davis. All three were seniors, so no head-shaking about their presence on the UDFA list. Of the three, Cuff probably has the best chance, considering the rate at which GMs were claiming DBs this weekend and his impressive athleticism.

Two Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets players (FS/PR Jerrard Terrant and DB Mario Butler) were listed by NFL.com, and I added ATH Joshua Nesbitt to our list. Butler certainly has a chance to find his way into a camp, but Terrant's a solid athlete but got some bad advice about leaving after his junior year. Left off the semi-official list was also Georgia Tech OL Nick Claytor, who definitely shouldn't have chosen to leave school early in the first place. CB Dominique Reese and LB Brad Jefferson are also longshots.

Noel Devine And Seven Other Undrafted Free Agent Signings The Falcons Might Consider

The list of 2011 undrafted free agents isn't going to get any shorter any time soon, as no team can make a move until the NFL lockout ends. So the NFL Draft's leftovers are stuck waiting, but that doesn't mean teams can't plan out which players they'd like to have a shot at. Here's my best guess at a list of players the Atlanta Falcons might be thinking about:

RB Noel Devine, West Virginia: The theme of the draft was explosiveness, based on every interview Falcons brass has given since the offseason began. Here we have a short crate of dynamite, capable of lining up anywhere on the field and raising utter hell -- in 2009 he produced a gaudy 1,642 yards from scrimmage. Devine survived a heartbreaking childhood and lived to tell about it. Literally -- he spends his free time counseling New Orleans kids. He's still mentored by Falcons legend Deion Sanders despite taking advantage of Prime a few years ago. Openly trying to sell you on Noel Devine in Atlanta, rocky background and all. I'm done for now, though, I promise. Devine has been bench pressing more than double his body weight for years. OK, done. I swear. Skipped the Draft to return for his senior year. OK!

DL Pierre Allen, Nebraska: Pierre Allen, will you play any position in our entire front seven? Why yes, I'd be happy to. We know the Falcons are still in the market for a pass rusher, as Thomas Dimitroff sort of admitted Saturday night. Here's one that Rob Rang called a mid-round pick who had 13 career sacks. What's holding him back? Injury concerns.

RB John Clay, Wisconsin: The team added its change-of-pace back in Jacquizz Rodgers, likely finalizing the exit of Jerious Norwood. Now how will they cover for Jason Snelling's potential exit? While Rodgers is much more Snelling than he is Michael Turner when it comes to versatility, it would still be nice to have another hammer around. He suffered a MCL late in 2010 and had trouble with his grades early on, however.

DB Joe Lefeged, Rutgers: Mel Kiper's top-rated UDFA is a 210-pounder who ran a 4.42 Combine 40-yard dash and finished as a Thorpe Award semifinalist. He holds the Scarlet Knights career kickoff returns record, too. He was projected as high as the fourth round -- for a team that just lost a backup safety, Lefeged might be a good option.

QB Scott Tolzien, Wisconsin, or Pat Devlin, Delaware: Do you think the Falcons need to start working on a third-string QB, with the impending (at some point) retirement of Chris Redman? Both of these passers are mind-bendingly safe -- Devlin's TD/INT ratio as a senior was 22/3, in addition to a 4/0 showing in camoes as a Penn State backup. Tolzien completed over 74 percent of his passes as a senior, a school record, while playing in a power running offense not entirely dissimilar to Atlanta's.

TE Zach Pianalto, UNC: The draft's top-rated remaining tight end who wasn't suspended for the entire 2010 season a la Weslye Saunders (that's good!), Pianalto still suffered two major injuries and missed most of 2010 with a broken right leg. Still, if the team wants to stack up bodies at the position in advance of Tony Gonzalez' exit, the rare un-suspended Tar Heel might be worth a flyer.

TE Charlie Gantt, Michigan State: Again, I'm not as sold on the Falcons desperately needing a TE as others are, but they might bring one in to camp just to shut everybody up. Would not blame them. Reading up on Gantt, he sounds like the most Big Ten player in America -- steady but never flashy. You might remember him as the guy who caught Sparty's fake field goal to beat Notre Dame.

Undrafted Free Agents List: 113 Potential NFL Post-Draft Signings (If Lockout Ever Ends)

Due to the sorta-ongoing NFL lockout, we really have no idea when teams will be able to help themselves to the long list of undrafted free agents who slipped through the 2011 NFL Draft's cracks. Until the lockout ends, teams can't have any contact with players -- which includes both drafted and undrafted rookies.

This is terrible for the many draft-eligible players who didn't get picked during the draft's seven rounds, who now have even less time to show their eventual temporary destination that they're worth hanging on to. Lest we forget, 23 undrafted players made the 2011 Pro Bowl, including Atlanta Falcons CB Brent Grimes.

There are a few decently rated prospects out there, too, including Kentucky Wildcats RB Derrick Locke, North Carolina Tar Heels DB Kendric Burney, Clemson Tigers SS DeAndre McDaniel, Fort Valley State WR Ricardo Lockette (the fourth-fastest man at the Combine and a Falcons fan who interviewed with the team), Central Michigan LB Nick Bellore, UNC DB Deunta Williams, Notre Dame Fighting Irish DT Ian Williams and Fresno State WR Jamel Hamler. Names like Oregon Ducks WR Jeff Maehl and Boston College Eagles LB Mark Herzlich also surely ring a bell?
