DD.comment: One thing to note, most of the guys on this list were among the last players to make their respective teams, so don't be surprised if a few are cut in upcoming weeks. Also, it's very likely many more UFA rookies will make N.F.L. rosters before the season is over. In years past, there is usually an uptick in UFA rookies promoted to 53 man rosters after week 9, or so. This usually happens when teams that seem to be out of their respective playoff races look to replace injured veterans with young, practice squad types.
