Top 20 undrafted players1. Jerrard Tarrant, FS, Georgia TechMissed the 2009 season after being suspended for rape charges that were later dropped. Has legitimate cover skills and could force his way onto a roster and get playing time thanks to his athletic skills.2. Mark Herzlich, OLB, Boston CollegeBeat cancer to start in 2010. Herzlich needs more time to regain his explosiveness and speed, but he’s a smart, tough, physical player who shares many qualities with Chiefs linebacker Mike Vrabel.3. Ian Williams, NT, Notre DameA three-year starter with experience in both a 3-4 and 4-3 defense, Williams has great character and work ethic. He is a much better run defender than pass rusher at this stage.4. Owen Spencer, WR, North Carolina StateHas great size (6-2, 192 pounds) and length. Good speed (4.55), but not very strong in his run after the catch or tough as a blocker. Does a good job of separating from press. Was a three-year starter for the Wolfpack.5. Derrick Locke, RB, KentuckyAn explosive, big-play threat that fell because of his diminutive stature (5-8 ¼, 187 pounds). Injury-prone. Does have excellent open-field ability.6. Joe Lefeged, S, RutgersLack of production against the run kept him from getting drafted, but he has the speed, acceleration and quickness to become a viable NFL safety and special-teams player. Has the burst needed to close effectively.7. Jeff Maehl, WR, OregonShined in the BCS title game by showing decent speed and toughness. He consistently goes across the middle and takes hits while holding onto the ball. Needs to add some bulk to continue that at the next level.8. Jamar Newsome, WR, Central FloridaVery quick and athletic receiver with good hands. Does not have premier playing speed and lacks size (6-0, 200 pounds). However, showed on film he has what it takes to make it as a slot receiver and returner in the NFL.9. Terrence Toliver, WR, LSUGreat combination of size (6-4, 211 pounds), speed and strength. Struggles with consistency at times and can disappear on film. When engaged, he can dominate his position, especially showing a solid ability to run after the catch. Needs to improve his route running to help create separation.Georgia Tech safety Jerrard Tarrant is Russ Lande's top undrafted player. (AP Photo)10. Damien Berry, RB, Miami (Fla.)A first-year starter in 2010 after a brief stint at safety. Highly productive special-teams player. More of a move-the-chains type of back.11. Kris O’Dowd, C, USCA potential first-round pick last year, but fell this year because he lacks athleticism. What he has is toughness and competitiveness.12. Jimmy Young, WR, TCULacks the explosiveness of TCU teammate Jeremy Kerley, but is a bigger receiver with better strength and deceptive playing speed. Good hands and is a very strong runner after the catch.13. Ryan Bartholomew, C, SyracuseVery muscular and powerful center who is able to lock and control defensive tackles despite being less than 6-foot-1. Highly productive college player.14. Justin Boren, G, Ohio StateDecent size (6-2, 309 pounds) with strength and toughness. He is not really flexible and struggles with his balance. Should be a backup at all three interior offensive line positions.15. Jon Cornell, MLB, MississippiA smart, instinctive linebacker who is constantly around the ball making tackles against the run. Solid in small-area pass coverage, but lacks speed.16. Anthony Elzy, RB, North CarolinaHad three straight 100-yard games before getting hurt. A quick and athletic back with excellent hands and open-field running ability. Potentially a good third-down back.17. Zac Etheridge, DB, AuburnA neck issue kept Etheridge from going in this year’s draft. He can be an immediate contributor on coverage teams. Has enough skills to eventually crack a starting lineup in the right situation.18. Will Hill, S, FloridaUndrafted because of maturity issues and poor top-end speed. However, he plays faster on film than he did at the Combine and shows the instincts needed to break effectively on plays in front.19. Alex Linnenkohl, C, Oregon StateA three-year starter for the Beavers. He has a square build with shorter arms for the position. Although he has very good initial quickness, he is only a marginal athlete with little upside. Smart and savvy.20. Pierre Allen, DE, NebraskaA solid prospect with the measurables to be a prototypical defensive end. Gives maxium effort on every snap and could add depth for any 4-3 defense.

The part that got eliminated was the fact that you posted that twice. For future reference, a link with a snippet of the good stuff probably works better.
