One major reason why the competition for undrafted free agents is so fascinating: every team gets the same amount of money to use for bonuses on undrafted rookies, and it is not much. Per the CBA, the bonus pool was $75,00o in 2011, and it has grown at the same rate of the salary cap since.

Thanks to a report from Weston Hodkiewicz of the Green Bay Press-Gazette, we have a sense of how one team allocated their undrafted rookie bonus dollars this spring. According to Hodkiewicz, the Packers gave Oklahoma State offensive guard Lane Taylor $7,000 to sign. Five other players, per the Press-Gazette, received $5,000 bonuses. However, at least two players didn’t receive a bonus whatsoever, according to the report.

It will be interesting to see how this all plays out. And see if any UDFAs make the roster this year.

Last year, OL Barclay, LB Moses, WR Boykin, and S Richardson did.

I couldn't find much on him as far as scouting info but he's big (6'3 324) and is reported to by physical andshowed a lot of skill as a pass blocker. He's another guy that will certainly push some people in camp, but I am guessing he spends a year on the practice squad and comes up as an injury replacement. if Sherrod isn't 100% or if they decide to drop Lang, I could see him with a shot.
