        He will make the team. He lead all EDGE defenders in the nation last year with 65 QB pressures. He finished with 11 sacks, 12 hits, and 42 hurries. We struck gold with Holland.

        I also think Lowell Lotulelei has a good shot at making the 53 as well.

          CBS Sports had Holland pegged as an early 3rd round pick (67th best player in the draft)

          Draft Prospect Outlook:

          Super-charged speed rusher who showcased impressive hand use and especially bend to the quarterback. High motor helps him with coverage sacks. Stand-up rusher at the next level.

          College Recap:

          Holland was the top backup behind future NFL star Carl Lawson at Auburn's hybrid pass rushing position at Buck, so his production was limited in 2016. He had 13 tackles, including a pair of sacks, while waiting for his time to become a starter on Kevin Steele's defense at Auburn. He ended the 2016 season knowing he would be a starter with a chance to develop into a star if he could live up to the top-10 ranking provided to him by 247Sports out of high school.

          Holland more than lived up to expectations and perhaps met or exceeded them in his first and only season as the Tigers' starter at Buck. He had 45 tackles, including 13 for losses and 10 sacks. He led the SEC for most of the season in sacks. He also was credited with 22 quarterback hurries and forced an incredible four fumbles while also breaking up a pass. He definitely proved himself worthy of an early entry into the NFL Draft after his junior season after proving he was likely Auburn's MVP on defense. - Brandon Marcello, AuburnUndercover

            The reason why Jeff Holland went undrafted seems to be very similar to Shaquil Barrett's situation in 2014. Some evaluators thought he has a bad body.

            Holland doesn't have a shredded physique and could struggle with some of his athletic testing at the Combine, but he's a hard-nosed player who found a way to consistently harass quarterbacks in 2017. Holland wins as a rusher with a smart approach, good angles and plus play strength. While he has athletic limitations, his play strength and aggression will fit on an NFL roster. His rush ability could make him a solid rotational edge rusher with solid starter potential.
            .Plays with hip tightness and poor body composition

            .Carries bad weight and doesn't have typical physique of an NFL starter along the edge

            .Tight throughout his lower body

              Well then imo this guy is a good fit for us. Realistically speaking Barrett will likely want more than we will offer him (if we offer anything). Also this could open up the option of us trading one of Ray or Barrett if another team has a rusher get hurt.

              We will need to see how he does in the weight room AND how he plays in a PS game.

                Per Mike Klis:

                Broncos agreement with undrafted RB Phillip Lindsay includes impressive $15,000 signing bonus. Besides running the ball, Broncos will give him chance as a returner. #9sports.


                to put this in perspective Jamal Carter (who I am still excited to see his growth this season) received a $20,000 bonus last season as an UDFA and he made the 53-Man roster. CJ Anderson again also had a similar bonus if memory serves correctly.

                Also of note Jeff Holland received the same $15,000 signing bonus.
