Detroit Lions 2013 Undrafted Free Agents


The 2013 NFL Draft is complete, but that does not mean a number of talented players are still available to be had. Every year, the players who were not selected in the draft will still have an opportunity to contribute and make a NFL roster thanks to the undrafted free agency process.

There have been stars all around the league that emerge from the undrafted free agent ranks and this year will be no different.

Who did the Detroit Lions bring in as an undrafted free agent? Here is the list (alphabetical order by last name):

  • Skyler Allen, OL, Ohio
  • Michael Brooks, DT, East Carolina
  • Alex Carder, QB, Western Michigan
  • Joseph Fauria, TE, UCLA
  • Austin Holtz, OT, Ball State
  • Steven Miller, RB, Appalachian State
  • Jon Morgan, LB, Albany
  • Martavius Neloms, CB, Kentucky
  • Travis Tarpley, WR, Delaware State
  • LaAdrian Waddle, OT, Texas Tech
  • Cody Wilson, WR, Central Michigan

All of the players will have an uphill battle if they hope to make the Lions roster, but you can never count these motivated players out. Remember, current NFL starters like Arian Foster, Tony Romo and Wes Welker have all emerged from the UDFA ranks.
