The St. Louis Rams announced that they have signed 15 undrafted free agents on Monday, but the most notable player among the group was Florida CB Marcus Roberson.
Roberson declared for the NFL Draft following his junior season with the Gators. He appeared in 30 games throughout his college career and accumulated 56 total (46 solo), three interceptions, 1.5 sacks and one forced fumble while with Florida. He also earned time as a return man in 2013, receiving 14 punts for 129 yards.
Roberson appeared in just seven games in 2013 after battling several knee injuries and was suspended due to violating team rules, which may have been key factors into him going undrafted.
Through his injury history, Roberson clocked a subpar 40-yard dash time during the NFL combine of 4.61, possibly adding to his diminished draft stock.
Prior to the injury plagued season and issues that led to his suspension, Roberson was one of the highest regarded cornerback prospects for the NFL Draft.
In fact, ESPN’s Todd McShay had Roberson as the No. 101 overall player in his top 300 prospects list leading up to the draft.
It will be interesting to see what he’s able to do in training camp as he could prove to be a great undrafted free agent signings for the Rams.
