As is the case every year, once the draft comes to an end, there are many players still looking for a home. Usually, those undrafted players quickly sign with a team and get ready to go to work. Often times it is better for a player to go undrafted instead of getting picked in the final round. Players can assess their situation and see if a team has a need at their position or has shown a lot of interest in them. In some cases, players simply choose to stay closer to home.
Former Florida Gators’ cornerback Loucheiz Purifoy once touted as a fantastic NFL prospect because of his size (6’1) and speed, but had a sub-par season and saw his stock plummet.
Purifoy wound up going undrafted this weekend. He reportedly agreed to a deal with the Denver Broncos, but instead will join the Indianapolis Colts.
Colts signed former Florida CB Loucheiz Purifoy. Played in 37 games (19 starts). Plenty of talent but plenty of off-field issues too. #Colts
