Hill is old, but he has a gun. 
I'm right and everyone else does not have an opinion worth talking about.

Taysom Hill is one of the strongest QBs I've ever seen. He's a guy who is really intriguing just because he's got great tools, but hasn't been healthy at all. Probably my favorite non-drafted QB after Seth Russell (who has the same issues.)

Whatever the list becomes remember 2 or 3 of these guys make the 53 day roster. History shows EDGE and DB have a shot. I would say DB going to have an uphill climb this year. Maybe an offensive lineman cracks the 53. The punter should have an honest chance too.

With 10 draft picks, and with such a large rookie class last year, I wonder if it might not be tougher this year?  Heh heh, plus with TT going crazy signing bunches of FA's.  (Is it four, many of whom will likely make the roster?) 

Obviously the separation between a 5th/6th/7th round guy and an UDFA may be slim, but VERY rare for Ted to cut even a 5th without giving him camp-rookie-2nd-year-camp. 

Obviously access to making roster hingest heavily on how good/promising an UDFA looks, and perhaps even more importantly on injury.   

Hopefully injuries will be few and the need for UDFA will be slim.

At first blush Brown, Heiman & Evans look like the best prospects... All three arre good physically, Brown is a freak- it makes you wonder, why would a player with such great size/speed numbers not get drafted?

If Hill doesn't stick as a QB, look for the Packers to make him a FS. He's a great athlete.
