Undrafted Free Agents 2014: Philadelphia Eagles UDFA scouting reports

Jim O'Connor-US PRESSWIRE

The Eagles signed 15 undrafted free agents. Here's what you should know about them.

In addition to the 7 new players the Eagles acquired from the 2014 NFL Draft, they also signed 15 players in the undrafted rookie free agency period. BGN kept track of those signings here. We've already written an individual post for every Eagles draft pick but the undrafted free agent signings have been largely uncovered so I figured it would be a good idea to take a look at their scouting reports. Click on the links to read more if you're interested in reading more. Note that these UDFA signings have been officially confirmed by the Eagles.

OG Josh Andrews (DraftInsider)

Three-year starter at left guard with experience at the center position. Quick, versatile blocker with limited upside. Fires off the snap, stays square, and keeps his feet and hands active throughout the action. Explosive at the point, shows ability pulling across the line of scrimmage, and blocks with good lean.

TE Blake Annen (DraftInsider)

Moderately productive tight end who moved into the starting lineup as a senior. Efficient, blocks with solid fundamentals, and shows terrific vision. Fluid releasing of the line into pass routes, displays good movement skills, and solid eye-hand coordination. Takes a big hit but holds onto the throw. Terrific athletic.

OG Karim Barton (DraftInsider)

Junior-college transfer who started the past three seasons at right tackle. Bends his knees, sets with a wide base, and strong at the point of attack. Stays square, anchors in pass protection, and easily gets positioning on defenders. Jolts opponents with terrific hand punch and makes good use of blocking angles. Keeps his head on a swivel, displays good awareness, and blocks with a nasty attitude.

WR Kadron Boone (DraftInsider)

Caught 7 passes for 129 yards and 2 TDs last season in 13 games. Started seven games as a junior and posted career-best totals of 26 receptions, 348 yards, and 4 TDs. Consistent receiver who does the little things well. Displays good focus, timing, and eye-hand coordination. Sells routes, works to separate from opponents, and effectively makes catches in stride. Gets up and fights to come away with the ball. Extends to make catches away from his frame.

TE Trey Burton (NFL.com)

Very good athlete. Natural hands-catcher. Catches in stride and adjusts very well to the flight of the ball. Keeps working to uncover and has a good feel for zones. Good route runner. Sets up defensive backs and can create some separation out of his breaks. Can make the first tackler miss and is fairly elusive. Versatile and has played every offensive skill position. Football smart -- understands offensive concepts and how the pieces fit together like a former quarterback. Outstanding personal character and will represent a team with class. Is tough and durable and will play through pain. Willing, effective special-teams contributor. Highly competitive team player.

RB David Fluellen (HustleBelt)

Fluellen currently projects as a late round pick or priority free agent signing. He ranks 24th out of 210 Draft eligible running backs, and 323rd of 2,882 total players entered in the draft. The running back is versatile, both in the run and passing game, but will need to refine his pass blocking skills to stick as a third down back in the NFL. His good hands make him a receiving threat, and his strength gives him good power to break tackles, but his lack of speed, and breakaway ability limit the potential he has at the next level.

CB John Fulton (NFL Draft Scout)

A back-up most of his career, Fulton has battled a turf toe injury and started the 2013 season opener, but has adequate size, speed and strength (16 reps of 225 pounds).

OT Kevin Graf (DraftInsider)

Three-year starter at right tackle. Hard-working offensive line prospect with limited athleticism and upside. Works to bend his knees. Anchors at the point and gets a pad on defenders to knock them from their angle of attack. Stays square, adjusts to oncoming blitzers, and keeps his feet moving. Keeps his head on a swivel and works well with teammates.

OG Donald Hawkins (CBS Sports)

Hawkins stays light on his feet with good lateral quickness and shuffle to protect the edge, doing a nice job squaring up defenders with natural body control and coordination. Hawkins looks comfortable pulling and blocking on the move with the athleticism to get to the second level and clear the road down the field.

RB Henry Josey (NFL.com)

Quick-footed and agile -- smooth handling. Nice one-cut ability and burst through the hole. Good long speed. Averaged 7.4 yards per carry his last two seasons. Did not fumble as a junior. Well-liked and highly respected by teammates and coaches. Exhibited mental toughness persevering through injury.

DT Wade Keliikipi (NFP)

He looks and plays bigger than his listed size (6’3 – 306). He is a big, wide body who looks like he is 315+ and is very strong. Like most nose tackles, Keliikipi is not an elite athlete. He does have very good balance, plays with an excellent base, and is rarely off his feet. Because of his size and strength, he can occupy blockers at the point of attack and doesn’t give ground. He shows good hand use to shed and does a good job stuffing inside running plays. He can get some penetration and be disruptive. He is mainly a tackle-to-tackle type player but will occasionally make a pursuit play. While I wouldn’t call him fast, he has good short area quickness and a burst. His change of direction is good for a big guy. Interestingly, Oregon will sometimes play him on his feet and even drop him into coverage, but they give him a very limited area to cover.

S Daytawion Lowe (DraftInsider)

Three-year starter who posted 87 tackles and intercepted two passes last season. Career-best 97 tackles came during his sophomore season. Slightly undersized but athletic safety with next-level football skills. Flashes ability in man coverage, runs downfield with opponents, and gets his head back around to locate the pass in the air. Forceful up the field, squares into runners, and brings opponents down at the point of attack. Plays heads-up football but at same time has a physical nature. Shows cover skills between the numbers.

DE Frank Mays (via PE.com)

A two-year letterman at Florida A&M, Mays played in 11 games for the Rattlers as a senior in 2013 and led the team in sacks (4.0) while ranking second with 10.5 tackles for a loss. The Bemidji, MN, native appeared in 21 total games in his college career, tallying 68 tackles, 15.5 tackles for loss and six sacks.

WR Quron Pratt (DraftInsider)

Named Rutgers MVP last season after posting 32 receptions for 516 yards. Quick, dependable receiver who plays bigger and faster than his size and speed numbers. Runs sharp routes, quickly gets into breaks then stays low on exit. Separates from opponents, uses his frame to shield away defenders, or gets vertical to come down with the difficult reception. Displays good eye-hand coordination, takes a big hit but holds onto the throw. Effective kick returner.

K Carey Spear (Anchor of Gold)

On top of Spear's potentially sociopathic tendencies to destroy opposing kick returners, the Vandy senior was also one of the 'Dores most consistent weapons in his final two years in Nashville. After struggling to make longer kicks early in his career, he went 2-2 from 50+ yards last fall, peaking with a 54-yarder against South Carolina. He also has a 61-yarder on record from his high school days, so his leg should have enough juice in it to succeed in the pros. "Murderleg" also developed a reputation for big kicks as his tenure at Vandy wore on. His 2011 miss from 27 yards out against Arkansas may have cost the 'Dores an upset win, but it served as a turning point in his career. He made 12 of his 14 FG attempts in games that were decided by seven points or fewer as an upperclassman and that composure lifted Vandy to a key win over Wake Forest as a senior. His only misses in that span came from 45 and 51 yards.
