How many of these 10 do you think have a legitimate shot to make the team? Low $ risk ...high reward potential if you yield just 1 or 2.

I think Conrad has the best shot at making the 53 man roster. Tauaefa too if injuries hit the LB unit. Dungey is probably a lock to make the practice squad.
No problem Milton

It seemed odd that Adams, Conrad, and Dungey didnít get any guarantees. I checked out spotrac also and Iím not sure why they donít list any guaranteed money for those three but do for the others.
kind of odd distribution of money. More about offers from other teams  
Ivan15 : 5/17/2019 8:15 am : link
than talent?

For example, why does Wesley get much more than White?

Agreed I think Conrad is a near lock as long as he stays healthy. His competition is Simonson who offers nothing as a receiver. I would add James OíHagan as well. He will be competing with Evan Brown for the other backup interior spot. Alex Wesley, Paul Adams, Eric Dungey, and Austin Droogsma could end up on the practice squad.
My thoughts

I agree that Conrad and Tauaefa may have the best shot but I'm anxious to see Dungey (for his versatility) and Alex Wesley ... Wesley was listed by some as a mid round pick and he ran a 4.45 ... back to back 1000 yd seasons though he may need some weight room work at only 180

Yeah, looking at the pre-draft predictions for all these guys, Wesley was rated highest, and it looks like he and Tauefa got the most coin from the Giants. Not sure I see the attraction in Tauefa but the Giants obviously see something to give him that much.

6'4" 280.

Long shot athletic.

Make him a blocking tight end help out remmers wheeler.

Avery moss maybe also. 6'4 270
Keep in mind that any NFL salary, including practice squad pay...

...will likely count as an offset against those guarantees. So even the larger guarantees, like Tauaefaís, would probably be covered by 10-12 weeks on a practice squad, or 3-4 weeks on an active roster. Anyway, the bigger financial risk the team incurs with the UDRFAs, by far, is injury-related.
One of the more exciting camp battles  
Jay on the Island : 5/17/2019 7:15 pm : link
will be between Evan Brown and James O'Hagan for the final interior backup spot. I think the winner sticks and the other heads for the practice squad.

. Dungy us intriguing but he has no experience relaying TR Wouldn't he be a lot more effective after a year on the practice squad? Especially if he gets to play all those positions vs. defense?
