The Skins drafted a few defensive backs and it would not hurt for them to bring in some undrafted free agents for competition. Some of the players that were not drafted had better pre-draft measureables than those the Team drafted. The measureables for the drafted players are shown separately.
Deunta Williams, North Carolina, has listings at FS and CB, but was unable to perform predraft test due to surgery. Nevertheless he looks like a good prospect, had the best NFP grade of the UDFA listed, and was CBS Sports 6th ranked FS.
