    Dylan Cole gets more love as undrafted free agent to watch

    Now that all the NFL teams have at least one week of OTAs in the books, the fate of more of the undrafted rookie free agents is a little clearer. The Houston Texans still have one regarded as a great bet to make a legitimate impact in linebacker Dylan Cole. Hyped up as soon as he signed in Houston after going undrafted out of Missouri State, Cole continues to draw league-wide accolades. This time it’s NFL.com analyst Lance Zierlein, also a Houston radio personality, singling out Cole in his list of the six UDFAs in the most favorable situations.

What surprising however is that the AFC South didn’t have a single team in the top 10, but Brandt did sure to include the Jacksonville Jaguars and Houston Texans in his honorable mentions, along with the Miami Dolphins and Seattle Seahawks. The AFC South and NFC West were the only two divisions not represented in the list and receiving “also considered” designations. Brandt has been optimistic about the Jaguars since the end of the 2016 season and he hasn’t been quiet about the fact
