With the draft getting closer every day, and many of the pro days wrapping up, NFL teams are starting to finalize their draft day strategy. But there are still a few big free agents left who could fill the needs of any team and change up what happens on May 8.
1) DeSean Jackson, WR- After being released by the Eagles Jackson finds himself being arguably the most talented free agent left. He is still in the prime of his career and the Pro Bowl receiver is coming off one of his most productive seasons so far. However, with the recent speculation of his gang affiliation, and his desire to get a very large contract, teams may be slow to sign him. With that being said he is still a promising signing and could fill a hole as a playmaker on almost any team. Expect Jackson to have many teams interested including the Jets, Raiders, 49ers, and Chiefs among many others.
2) Alex Mack, C- Mack is still on this list because of the transition tag placed on him by the Browns. He is able to meet with any team, but Cleveland will have the ability to match any offer. Mack is without a doubt one of the top offensive linemen in this year’s free agency, and with the signing of Phil Costa by Indianapolis, it looks like he will stay in Cleveland.
3) Jermichael Finley, TE- Finley is likely going to sign with Seattle at some point. The only thing holding the deal back is medical clearances after his scary injury last season. There are still some doubts as to whether or not he should have come back to play, but assuming he is 100 percent healthy, whenever he signs with a new team he will be a great accusation and a good red zone weapon.
4) Davin Joseph, G- Joseph wasn’t quite the player that he used to be after returning from his knee injury, but another year of recovery under his belt may have helped him become the player he used to be. The Rams seemed to be a good fit for Joseph, but after re-signing Rodger Saffold, it is unlikely he still ends up in St. Louis. Instead Miami appears to be the most promising suitor.
5.) Owen Daniels, TE- Daniels durability is the biggest concern. Last season, Daniels played only five games because of a fractured fibula. When healthy he has the ability to play a promote role as a tight-end and become an addition to receiving core. The Baltimore Ravens are claimed to have the most interest in tight end Daniels also the Washigton Redskins have expressed some interest.
