Roy Finch, RB, Oklahoma

UDFA. Signed by the Patriots as a UDFA but was released in August. But he could always go to another team or a practice squad, make a team as a return specialist and potentially work his way into a running back rotation. His lack of size is a real problem and will scare off most teams.

All-Star Games: NFLPA Collegiate Bowl.

Positives: Above-average speed and burst. Despite his lack of size, he runs very aggressively, and finishes runs strong. Gives consistently good effort for extra yards. Is most effective when he can stretch runs outside and turn the corner; however, he is also surprisingly effective running inside. Quick feet and changes directions well. Good lateral movement. Above-average vision in the open field. Shows pretty good stamina and can make several moves on one play. Above-average hands and can extend and snatch the ball well, adjusting fairly well to off-target passes. Is fairly dangerous after the catch, and is hard to pin down in the open field. Runs balanced even after contact and is hard to bring down one-on-one. As a kick returner, he is fairly decisive and gets upfield quickly, with above-average acceleration – not wasting sideways motion.

Negatives: Very small for the position, with small hands. Sometimes seems to run out of control and will run into contact. Though he is hard to grab in the open field or to see behind the line, he is easy to bring down once a defender gets his hands on him.

Projection: Keep an eye on him in fantasy football – especially in return yardage leagues. But no pressing need to draft him
