NFL free agency officially begins on March 15 at the start of a new league year. Two days earlier, on March 13, teams can begin contract negotiations with unrestricted free agents but can’t officially sign them until 4 p.m. ET on the 15th.
Teams can bring back their own free agents by using the franchise or transition tags prior to March 7. After that deadline passes, players who are not tagged become unrestricted free agents and can negotiate with any team once the negotiating window opens on March 13.
With players getting tagged and veterans getting released, The 33rd Team’s top 150 free agents list below will change frequently between now and the start of free agency. We will update the rankings accordingly.
Note: All ages are calculated by how old the player will be at the kickoff of the 2023 NFL season on Sept. 7.
Top 150 Free Agents
1. Lamar Jackson, QB, Age 26
2022: Passing Yards: 2,242 | Passing TDs: 17 | INTs: 7 | QBR: 59.1
Lamar Jackson will define this year’s free agency — if he ever gets there, and there’s no reason to believe he will. He is a former MVP and a top-10 quarterback. The Baltimore Ravens are 45-16 in games when Jackson starts. Quarterbacks of this caliber are rarely available in free agency, and it’s difficult to imagine a scenario in which the Ravens allow him to get there. But for now, he sits atop our rankings.
MARCH 7 UPDATE: The Ravens placed the non-exclusive franchise tag on Jackson.
2. Derek Carr, QB, Age 32
2022: Passing Yards: 3,522 | Passing TDs: 24 | INTs: 14 | QBR: 55.5
Derek Carr has moments when he is clutch (33 game-winning drives) and others when he makes questionable decisions. Someone is going to bet on his upside and pay him big this offseason. He’s already visited with the New York Jets and New Orleans Saints, and is expected to meet with the Carolina Panthers at the NFL Combine, so there’s a strong market for his services.
MARCH 6 UPDATE: The Saints and Carr agreed to a four-year contract.
3. Saquon Barkley, RB, Age 26
2022: Rush Yards: 1,312 | Rush TDs: 10 | Catches: 57 | Rec. Yards: 338
Saquon Barkley returned to prominence in 2022, showcasing his explosion and ability to carry an offense. He stayed healthy all season and bounced back from two down years with more than 1600 yards from scrimmage. He added two TDs in the New York Giants‘ first playoff win in more than 10 years.
He will be one of the top playmakers available in free agency, but the Giants can use the franchise tag on him. Both sides have expressed interest in reaching a long-term agreement.
MARCH 7 UPDATE: The Giants placed the franchise tag on Barkley.
4. Jessie Bates, S, Age 26
2022: Tackles: 71 | INTs: 4 | PBUs: 7 | FF: 1
After playing last season on the franchise tag for just less than $13 million, Jessie Bates likely will be looking for a long-term deal at the top of the safety market. If the Cincinnati Bengals were to tag him again, that number would go up to 120 percent of his 2022 salary. Cincinnati also has to worry about extensions for players like Joe Burrow and Tee Higgins in the near future.
If Bates makes it to the market, he will be highly sought after thanks to his strong play, which includes an All-Pro 2020 season.
5. Orlando Brown Jr., OT, Age 27
2022: Snaps: 1133 | Penalties: 6 | Sacks Allowed: 4 | Pressures: 39
Orlando Brown Jr. has been solid at left tackle for the Kansas City Chiefs; however, he is likely asking for top left tackle money when his play doesn’t necessarily merit that kind of contract. Like Bates, Brown played the 2022 season on the franchise tag, earning $16.7 million.
Kansas City could tag him again, but Brown’s salary would be 120 percent of last season’s amount. The Chiefs seem motivated to re-sign him, but if they don’t, Brown will receive a huge payday elsewhere.
6. Chauncey Gardner-Johnson, S, Age 25
2022: Tackles: 67 | INTs: 6 | PBUs: 8 | FF: 0
The Philadelphia Eagles traded for Chauncey Gardner-Johnson last offseason, and he answered the bell in a big way this season. He led the league with six interceptions and the Eagles with eight pass breakups as part of a top-tier secondary. Gardner-Johnson is a versatile chess piece who can drop into the box, cover TEs and RBs and stuff the run.
The Eagles have multiple other high-impact free agents on defense — specifically the defensive line — so Gardner-Johnson could hit the open market if Philadelphia values other positions over safety.

7. Javon Hargrave, IDL, Age 30
2022: Tackles: 60 | Sacks: 11 | Run Stuffs: 4.5 | FF: 1
Javon Hargrave was at the heart of the Eagles’ historical success up front on defense this year. He had favorable matchups all season because foes paid so much attention to the Eagles’ edge rushers. He was a wrecking ball with a career-high 11 sacks and was involved in three turnovers.
Hargrave is 30 and may not command a monstrous deal, but he is a top-flight defensive tackle who stands out in this market.
MARCH 13 Update: The 49ers and Hargrave agreed to a four-year, $84 million deal.
8. Josh Jacobs, RB, Age 25
2022: Rush Yards: 1,653 | Rush TDs: 12 | Catches: 53 | Rec. Yards: 400
Josh Jacobs lead the league in rushing and scrimmage yards, and he did it with little offensive line help from the Las Vegas Raiders. Jacobs is a true RB1 and is only 25. He’s going to draw a lot of attention on the open market.
The Raiders could have avoided this outcome by picking up Jacobs’ fifth-year option before the 2022 season, but they decided it wasn’t worth it.
MARCH 6 UPDATE: The Raiders placed the franchise on him.
9. Mike McGlinchey, OT, 28
2022: Snaps: 987 | Penalties: 10 | Sacks Allowed: 6 | Pressures: 26
Mike McGlinchey is 28 and has been an anchor at right tackle for the San Francisco 49ers, starting 12 or more games in four of his five NFL seasons. The 49ers likely will re-sign McGlinchey to stay opposite Trent Williams.
10. Jimmy Garoppolo, QB, Age 31
2022: Passing Yards: 2,437 | Passing TDs: 16 | INTs: 4 | QBR: 54.3
There is no doubt Jimmy Garoppolo has been a winner with the 49ers. Garoppolo trails only Patrick Mahomes, Drew Brees, Jackson, and Tom Brady in quarterback win percentage since he joined the 49ers in 2017. However, the 49ers already have committed to moving on from Garoppolo this offseason.
His health is a major question, but some quarterback-needy teams will desire Garoppolo.
MARCH 13 UPDATE: The Raiders and Garoppolo agreed to a three-year, $67.5 million deal.
11. James Bradberry, CB, Age 30
2022: Tackles: 44 | INTs: 3 | PBUs: 17 | FF: 0
James Bradberry had his best season with the Eagles of his seven in the NFL and was selected second-team All-Pro. Bradberry was one of the best shutdown corners in 2022 and was part of arguably the NFL’s best 1-2 tandem with Darius Slay. Despite his crucial holding penalty in the Super Bowl, Bradberry is one of the top cornerbacks available.
Bradberry hinted at wanting more than a one-year deal while cleaning out his locker in a press conference with reporters after the Super Bowl.
MARCH 14 UPDATE: The Eagles re-signed Bradberry to a three-year, $38 million deal.
12. Daron Payne, IDL, Age 26
2022: Tackles: 64 | Sacks: 11.5 | Run Stuffs: 8 | FF: 0
Daron Payne had a career season in 2022. He racked up career bests in pass deflections, sacks, tackles, TFLs, and quarterback hits en route to his first Pro Bowl. He was a force on the talented Washington Commanders‘ defensive line, and he’ll be just 26 this season. As one of the best interior defenders in football, there’s a solid chance he never reaches the open market. The Commanders are expected to franchise tag Payne at a cost of just under $19 million.
FEB. 28 UPDATE: The Commanders placed the franchise tag on Payne.
MARCH 12 UPDATE: Payne signed a four-year, $90 million deal with the Commanders.
13. Lavonte David, LB, Age 33
2022: Tackles: 124 | Sacks: 3 | PBUs: 5 | FF: 1
Lavonte David is an aging linebacker at the core of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers‘ recent run of success, but he is showing no signs of slowing down. He played all 17 games and logged the 23rd most tackles in the league last season.
Given the Buccaneers’ roster construction, David likely will hit the open market and go to a contender to ring chase.
MARCH 15 UPDATE: The Buccaneers re-signed David to a one-year, $7 million deal.
14. Daniel Jones, QB, Age 26
2022: Passing Yards: 3,205 | Passing TDs: 15 | INTs: 5 | QBR: 60.8
Daniel Jones had his fifth-year option declined last offseason, making 2022 a make-or-break year for Jones under new coach Brian Daboll. Jones stayed healthy, cut his turnovers by more than 50 percent, and led the Giants to the playoffs. He showed a new, surprising element of speed and toughness with his running ability, something the Giants should look to build on in 2023.
Jones showed considerable improvement, but the sides seem to be at an impasse in long-term contract talks. Jones reportedly wants $45 million per year after firing his agent. In all likelihood, this could lead the Giants to franchise tag Jones at $32.4 million for next season.
MARCH 7 UPDATE: The Giants agreed to terms with Jones on a four-year, $160 million deal.
15. Geno Smith, QB, Age 32
2022: Passing Yards: 4,282 | Passing TDs: 30 | INTs: 11 | QBR: 60.8
Geno Smith revived his career this past season with the Seattle Seahawks, miraculously guiding them to the playoffs. Seattle owns the No. 5 pick in the 2023 NFL Draft, so should it could opt to bring in a young quarterback.
However, Smith has expressed interest in returning to Seattle. And in an interview this offseason, general manager John Schneider said he’d like to bring Smith back.
MARCH 6 UPDATE: The Seahawks re-signed him to a three-year, $105 million deal.
16. Tony Pollard, RB, Age 26
2022: Rush Yards: 1,007 | Rush TDs: 9 | Catches: 39 | Rec. Yards: 371
Tony Pollard had an exceptional season before sustaining a broken ankle in the playoffs. Pollard put up nearly 1,400 scrimmage yards on more than five yards per carry as the Dallas Cowboys‘ lead back. He took a majority of the snap share from Ezekiel Elliott. Pollard is a dynamic player who can be used all over the field and is one of the best backs in space in the NFL.
He’s hard to tackle with arm tackles and runs through contact. The Cowboys have a tough decision to make when it comes to whether they want to keep Pollard and Elliot, just Elliott or just Pollard.
MARCH 6 UPDATE: The Cowboys placed the franchise tag on Pollard.
17. Jason Kelce, OC, Age 35
2022: Snaps: 1,149 | Penalties: 8 | Sacks Allowed: 0 | Pressures: 11
Jason Kelce is the best center in football and it’s not particularly close. Kelce was dominant as the vocal leader, communicator, and enforcer of the Eagles’ offensive line. His athleticism and ability to move in space are textbook for younger NFL linemen.
Kelce is undecided about playing next season, but if he does return, it’s almost guaranteed he’ll be back in Philly.
MARCH 13 UPDATE: The Eagles re-signed Kelce for a one-year, $9 million deal.
18. Jimmie Ward, S, Age 32
2022: Tackles: 50 | INTs: 3 | PBUs: 5 | FF: 1
Jimmie Ward has been a cornerstone piece of the 49ers’ defense since he was drafted in 2014, but he’ll be 32 next season. That age, for a defensive back, makes him a question mark, depending on his asking price. Ward is coming off two of his better seasons, securing multiple interceptions in 2021 and 2022.
19. Cameron Sutton, CB, Age 28
2022: Tackles: 43 | INTs: 3 | PBUs: 15 | FF: 0
Cameron Sutton is a versatile corner that can play in the slot and out wide. Sutton has started three seasons for the Pittsburgh Steelers, one in the slot and two outside. Sutton is coming off his best season and has shown to be a versatile cornerback option.
20. Jakobi Meyers, WR, Age 26
2022: Rec. Yards: 804 | Rec. TDs: 6 | Catches: 67 | Avg: 12.0
Jakobi Meyers is the best slot receiver available in the 2023 free agency class. He has produced well for the New England Patriots during the past four seasons. His dependability will be attractive to any team.
New England has more than $32 million in cap space, according to Over The Cap, so it’s possible he returns there next season.
MARCH 14 UPDATE: The Raiders and Meyers agreed on a three-year, $33 million deal.
21. Jamel Dean, CB, Age 26
2022: Tackles: 57 | INTs: 2 | PBUs: 8 | FF: 0
Jamel Dean is only 26 and plays a highly coveted position. He is an ascending player who should do nicely this offseason. Expect the cap-strapped Buccaneers to extend an offer, but he could be out of their price range.
MARCH 13 Update: The Buccaneers re-signed Dean to a four-year, $52 million deal.
22. David Long, LB, 26
2022: Tackles: 86 | Sacks: 0 | PBUs: 5 | INTs: 2
David Long is a linebacker with natural instincts to track the ball and make interceptions. He was one of the better off-ball run defenders of the 2022 season. The Titans already cut offensive tackle Taylor Lewan, wide receiver Robert Woods, kicker Randy Bullock and linebacker Zach Cunningham, saving the team nearly $38 million against the salary cap. Those moves and any additional cuts could allow them to bring back Long on a long-term deal.
23. Dalton Schultz, TE, Age 27
2022: Rec. Yards: 577 | Rec. TDs: 5 | Catches: 57 | Avg: 10.1
Dalton Schultz overcame a slow start to the season as he was nagged by injuries. He had two multi-touchdown games in the last eight weeks and ended the season with three TDs in two playoff games.
He is a solid receiving and blocking tight end who should command a near-top-of-the-market deal for a tight end. The Cowboys tagged Schultz last season, and his value on the second tag would run them $13.1 million. It also would prevent them from tagging Pollard.
24. Tremaine Edmunds, LB, Age 25
2022: Tackles: 102 | Sacks: 1 | PBUs: 7 | INTs: 1
Tremaine Edmunds has been in the middle of the Buffalo Bills‘ defense since being drafted in the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft. Edmunds improved in the one area some considered him to be weak in this season — coverage. Edmunds has five NFL seasons under his belt and will turn 25 this spring, so he will be a hot commodity this cycle.
25. Miles Sanders, RB, Age 26
2022: Rush Yards: 1,269 | Rush TDs: 11 | Catches: 20 | Rec. Yards: 78
Miles Sanders had never produced a 1,000-yard season before 2022. He answered critics with a career year — 1,269 yards and 11 TDs. Sanders was the leading back for the Eagles, who also had talented backups in Kenneth Gainwell and Boston Scott. Sanders is a steady, versatile back who can run outside and in between the tackles.
MARCH 15 Update: The Panthers and Sanders agreed to a four-year deal.
26. Isaac Seumalo, IOL, Age 29
2022: Snaps: 1,135 | Penalties: 6 | Sacks Allowed: 1 | Pressures: 20
Isaac Seumalo is a rock-solid guard. He started all 20 Eagles games this past season and was one of the top guards in football. He can play either guard spot and will be paid handsomely for his versatility and ability. The Eagles have many other free agents and limited cap space, so it’s hard to imagine Seumalo returning to Philadelphia.
27. Ben Powers, IOL, Age 26
2022: Snaps: 1,094 | Penalties: 1 | Sacks Allowed: 0 | Pressures: 12
Ben Powers is one of the top guards on the market. He is a three-year starter for the Ravens and is one of the better pass-blocking guards in the NFL. Baltimore’s main focus will be on Jackson, but they’d be wise to lock up Powers, too, because he’ll help whoever is playing quarterback next season.
28. Evan Engram, TE, Age 29
2022: Rec. Yards: 766 | Rec. TDs: 4 | Catches: 73 | Avg: 10.5
Evan Engram is one of the top tight ends in this free-agent class. He took a big leap by joining the Jacksonville Jaguars and had a lot of production with quarterback Trevor Lawrence. He can line up all over the field and take the top off of defenses with his speed.
Engram has said there is mutual interest in staying with the Jaguars next season. In fact, Engram tweeted “My heart dropped I thought this was the announcement 😂” in response to a Jaguars’ Tweet about his season. This seemingly indicates Engram is expected to be brought back.
MARCH 6 UPDATE: The Jaguars placed the franchise tag on Engram.
29. Vonn Bell, S, Age 28
2022: Tackles: 77 | INTs: 4 | PBUs: 8 | FF: 2
Vonn Bell is the other half, along with Bates, of Cincinnati’s dynamic safety duo. Bell had a career-best season in ball production as his four INTs and eight PBUs helped the Bengals reach the AFC Championship game.
Perhaps Bell will cost less than Bates, allowing Bell to return to Cincinnati next season. If not, plenty of teams will be interested in grabbing Bell after a career season.
30. Kaleb McGary, OT, Age 28
2022: Snaps: 1,051 | Penalties: 5 | Sacks Allowed: 6 | Pressures: 19
One of the pivotal elements of the Atlanta Falcons’ run game, Kaleb McGary played in all 17 games and was one of the better tackles in the league, letting up the 23rd fewest sacks and notching the most run-block snaps in the league. Expect Atlanta to sign him quickly at top dollar.
31. Azeez Al-Shaair, LB, Age 26
2022: Tackles: 44 | Sacks: 0 | PBUs: 0 | INTs: 0
The stat sheet may not indicate it, but Azeez Al-Shaair has become a solid contributor for the 49ers. In 2021, Al-Shaair displayed his range on the field by totaling 102 tackles. Al-Shaair will be only 26 when the season starts and would add some range to any linebacker group.
32. Jordan Poyer, S, Age 32
2022: Tackles: 63 | INTs: 4 | PBUs: 8 | FF: 1
Jordan Poyer has been a dependable player for the Bills, contributing to the Buffalo defense for six seasons. Poyer is a great defender in the pass and run games, and he is still at the top of his game. Any team needing a veteran presence in the secondary will be interested.
33. Fletcher Cox, IDL, Age 32
2022: Tackles: 43 | Sacks: 7 | Run Stuffs: 3 | FF: 1
Fletcher Cox had a smaller role because the Eagles added Haason Reddick and gave Josh Sweat more opportunities in 2022. Cox is one of the longest-tenured Eagles currently and all-time (184 games). He is a great veteran leader who can still play well. His seven sacks came while only playing 65 percent of the Eagles’ defensive snaps.
MARCH 15 Update: The Eagles and Cox agreed on a one-year, $10 million deal.
34. Jawaan Taylor, OT, Age 25
2022: Snaps: 1,095 | Penalties: 7 | Sacks Allowed: 5 | Pressures: 16
Jawaan Taylor is a young offensive tackle who has more room for growth. He can handle power rushers and has the ideal measurables (6-foot-5, 312 pounds) to last at the position for a long time. He had the third-lowest pressure rate allowed among right tackles in 2022.
35. JuJu Smith-Schuster, WR, Age 26
2022: Rec. Yards: 933 | Rec. TDs: 3 | Catches: 78 | Avg: 12.0
JuJu Smith-Schuster is a physical pass catcher who is route savvy and understands how to sit down in zone coverage well. For the current wide receiver market, Smith-Schuster could be an affordable high-end WR2.
MARCH 15 Update: The Patriots and Smith-Shuster agreed on a three-year, $33 million deal.
36. Robert Quinn, DE, Age 33
2022: Tackles: 10 | Sacks: 1 | Run Stuffs: 0 | FF: 0
Robert Quinn was a rare bust for the 2022 Eagles. He was traded to Philly from the Chicago Bears and was virtually a non-factor. He struggled to crack the Eagles’ deep defensive line rotation and was a lightly used rotating defensive end.
Quinn can still play as evidenced by his 18.5 sacks in 2021, it just never worked out for him in 2022 in either Chicago or Philadelphia.
37. Julian Love, S, Age 25
2022: Tackles: 124 | INTs: 2 | PBUs: 5 | FF: 1
The 2022 season was Julian Love‘s first as a full-time starter. He was voted a defensive captain and thrived in the secondary as a leader and playmaker. Love rarely came off the field, playing 95 percent of the Giants’ defensive snaps. He is a smart, dependable player who is utilized in many roles.
Love can blitz, play as the deep safety and stop the run. He had a knack for making game-changing plays such as his interception in the last 5 minutes vs. the Ravens in Week 6, a timely sack in Week 2 vs. the Carolina Panthers, and he helped clinch a win vs. Jacksonville in Week 7. He should only continue to get better.
38. Mike Gesicki, TE, Age 27
2022: Rec. Yards: 362 | Rec. TDs: 5 | Catches: 32 | Avg: 11.3
Mike Gesicki is one of the most athletic tight ends in the league (some consider him more of a “big slot WR”), but he had a hard time fitting into Mike McDaniel’s system in Miami. He had 112 targets in 2021 but failed to reach half of that figure in 2022 (52). He will find a new team that wants to utilize his unique skillset more than Miami did this past season.
39. Germaine Pratt, LB, Age 27
2022: Tackles: 99 | Sacks: 1 | PBUs: 10 | INTs: 2
Germaine Pratt broke out in his fourth season with the Bengals. He was a key starter on a great defense and had his best season in coverage. Pratt has size at 6-foot-3, 250 pounds, and speed; he ran a 4.57 40-yard dash (81st percentile for a LB) at the 2019 combine.
Pratt’s speed shows up as he rallies to punish underneath routes and checkdowns. The downside is, while Pratt was great in 2022, it was his first season playing at an above-average level, so teams may view him as a risky addition at a lower-value position.
40. Nate Davis, IOL, Age 26
2022: Snaps: 682 | Penalties: 4 | Sacks Allowed: 3 | Pressures: 14
Nate Davis has good movement skills and is able to progress to the second level on zone runs to wall off second-level defenders. He needs to improve in pass protection, and he’s recovering from a season-ending ankle injury.
The Titans struggled on the offensive line this season and have begun clearing cap space. Davis likely will hit the market, but a return to Tennessee isn’t out of the question.
41. Marcus Davenport, DE, Age 27
2022: Tackles: 29 | Sacks: 0.5 | Run Stuffs: 2 | FF: 0
Marcus Davenport’s production declined this year, but in 2021 he had nine sacks and three forced fumbles. He likely will be sought after as a young edge with a lot of explosive potential.
42. Marcus Peters, CB, Age 30
2022: Tackles: 47 | INTs: 1 | PBUs: 6 | FF: 2
Marcus Peters is a four-time All-Pro at cornerback, however, he is 30 and coming off one of his weakest seasons. Peters plays a high-risk style. He is targeted fairly often but makes up for it with great ball production. However, in 2022 Peters posted career lows in INTs and forced incompletions. Still, Peters’ pedigree could make him appealing to a team in need of a veteran option on the outside.
43. David Montgomery, RB, Age 26
2022: Rush Yards: 801 | Rush TDs: 5 | Catches: 34 | Rec. Yards: 316
The 2022 season was another productive one for David Montgomery, both in rushing and in receiving. He was one of the better offensive weapons on a limited Bears roster. Montgomery will be one of the more sought-after backs this offseason.
MARCH 14 Update: The Lions and Montgomery agreed to a three-year, $18 million deal.
44. Ethan Pocic, IOL, Age 28
2022: Snaps: 819 | Penalties: 1 | Sacks Allowed: 2 | Pressures: 10
Ethan Pocic was in and out of the starting lineup during his five years in Seattle but played his best football in his first season with the Cleveland Browns. Pocic is an experienced player and is scheme versatile because the Browns mixed between zone and gap runs frequently.
45. Zach Allen, DE, Age 26
2022: Tackles: 47 | Sacks: 5.5 | Run Stuffs: 11 | FF: 0
Zach Allen has continued to improve each season in the NFL. Allen recorded career highs in pressures, quarterback hits, and sacks in 2022, and is only turning 26 this summer. Teams are always looking to add pass rushers, and Allen projects as a less-expensive option.
MARCH 14 Update: The Broncos and Allen agreed to a four-year, $45.75 million deal.
46. Dalton Risner, IOL, Age 28
2022: Snaps: 967 | Penalties: 1 | Sacks Allowed: 3 | Pressures: 29
Dalton Risner is a strong, rugged mauler who can bolster any team’s interior offensive line. Risner ranked 10th in the league in run block win rate this past season among guards (74.4 percent), and he can set an anchor in pass pro.
47. Dalvin Tomlinson, IDL, Age 29
2022: Tackles: 42 | Sacks: 2.5 | Run Stuffs: 6.5 | FF: 1
Dalvin Tomlinson had another productive year on the Minnesota Vikings‘ defensive line. He brings consistent play in the running game and can rush the passer. Any team looking to shore up its interior defensive line will look to add Tomlinson.
48. Hayden Hurst, TE, Age 30
2022: Rec. Yards: 414 | Rec. TDs: 2 | Catches: 52 | Avg: 8
Hayden Hurst posted his second-best season in receptions and yards in his first year with the Bengals. Hurst has been a solid but not outstanding starter at TE. If a team misses out on some of the top-flight options, they could add Hurst at a cheaper price.
49. Bobby Okereke, LB, Age 27
2022: Tackles: 151 | Sacks: 0 | PBUs: 5 | INTs: 0
Bobby Okereke primarily stepped in at the WILL position and had a career season for the Indianapolis Colts. He has a high IQ, great instincts, high-level athleticism, and great length and speed. He has shown the ability to play more than one linebacker spot during the course of his career.
MARCH 13 Update: The Giants and Okereke agreed to a four-year, $40 million deal.
50. Leighton Vander Esch, LB, Age 27
2022: Tackles: 90 | Sacks: 1 | PBUs: 1 | INTs: 0
Leighton Vander Esch had a solid albeit unspectacular season. He missed the last three games of the regular season before returning for both playoff games. In 14 games, he had 90 tackles and was a dependable linebacker in Dallas’ defense. He’s been slowed down by injuries during his career, including neck surgery in 2019, but 2022 was his best season statistically since his rookie year.
51. Juan Thornhill, S, Age 27
2022: Tackles: 71 | INTs: 3 | PBUs: 9 | FF: 0
Juan Thornhill has been inconsistent; sometimes impactful, other times invisible. He hasn’t lived up to some of the draft hype he received, but he has been a good role player who is rarely caught out of position.
52. Carlos Dunlap, DE, Age 34
2022: Tackles: 39 | Sacks: 4 | Run Stuffs: 7.5 | FF: 1
Carlos Dunlap is a savvy vet who was added by the Super Bowl Champion Chiefs as a spare third-down edge rusher. Dunlap is on the home stretch of his career, but any team that needs depth on the defensive line could use him.
53. Brandon Graham, DE, Age 35
2022: Tackles: 35 | Sacks: 11 | Run Stuffs: 6.5 | FF: 2
Brandon Graham was treated similarly to Cox in 2022. He had fewer snaps and is getting up there in age, but he still produced in big fashion. His 11 sacks came on just 474 snaps, and 22 of his 35 tackles were sacks or TFLs. He’s still a threat off the edge and likely will join a contending team if he doesn’t remain with the Eagles.
MARCH 10 UPDATE: Graham re-signed with the team.
54. Donovan Wilson, S, Age 28
2022: Tackles: 101 | INTs: 1 | PBUs: 2 | FF: 2
Donovan Wilson broke out in 2022 for the Cowboys. He had career highs in tackles, TFLs (seven), QB hits (nine), and sacks (five). Wilson had a crucial role as a blitzer, and he thrived causing havoc in opposing backfields. Wilson also contributed three turnovers and was a force all over the field.
55. L.J. Collier, DE, Age 27
2022: Tackles: 7 | Sacks: 0 | Run Stuffs: 0 | FF: 0
A former first-round pick, L.J. Collier is still looking to make a larger impact in the NFL. Collier has not recorded a sack since the 2020 season, but it’s worth noting he didn’t more than 10 games for the Seahawks in 2021 and 2022 due to injuries.
56. Garrett Bradbury, OC, Age 28
2022: Snaps: 809 | Penalties: 4 | Sacks Allowed: 2 | Pressures: 24
Garrett Bradbury has had some inconsistent play and shown a deficiency in pass protection, but he has the ability to be a solid run-blocking center. He missed time due to injury in 2022, and the drop-off in play was noticeable.
57. Taylor Rapp, S, Age 25
2022: Tackles: 92 | INTs: 2 | PBUs: 6 | FF: 0
Taylor Rapp was a highly touted prospect out of the University of Washington. He might not be as consistent as the Rams had hoped, but Rapp has been a solid safety. He is two seasons removed from recording his career high of four interceptions, a great number for a safety.
58. Bradley Bozeman, OC, Age 28
2022: Snaps: 680 | Penalties: 4 | Sacks Allowed: 2 | Pressures: 12
Bradley Bozeman played all of his snaps at center last season. He became the Panthers’ starting center in Week 7 against the Buccaneers and played well enough to hold on to the job for the remainder of the season.
59. Patrick Peterson, CB, Age 33
2022: Tackles: 66 | INTs: 5 | PBUs: 15 | FF: 0
Patrick Peterson showed he can still play in his 12th season. He tallied five INTs, which tied him for second among cornerbacks. He also had the most tackles of his career with 66. He will draw interest, despite his age.
MARCH 13 Update: The Steelers and Peterson agreed on a two-year deal.
60. Jonathan Jones, CB, Age 29
2022: Tackles: 69 | INTs: 4 | PBUs: 11 | FF: 3
Jonathan Jones had a strong year in New England as he transitioned from a slot corner to an outside corner. The Patriots are unlikely to pay him what he is looking for, and he will find a new team that needs a dependable cornerback.
61. Jamaal Williams, RB, Age 28
2022: Rush Yards: 1,066 | Rush TDs: 17 | Catches: 12 | Rec. Yards: 73
Jamaal Williams had a career year in 2022. He was a goal-line specialist and led the NFL in touchdowns. Detroit would like to bring him back if he doesn’t command too much money on the open market.
62. Yannick Ngakoue, DE, Age 28
2022: Tackles: 29 | Sacks: 9.5 | Run Stuffs: 4.5 | FF: 1
While Yannick Ngakoue has his limits defending the run, he is an above-average pass rusher with a quick burst off the ball. He has the length and speed to test any offensive tackle in the league.
63. Byron Murphy, CB, Age 25
2022: Tackles: 36 | INTs: 0 | PBUs: 4 | FF: 0
Byron Murphy is coming off the least productive season of his four with the Cardinals. He sustained a season-ending back injury in the ninth game. Murphy is only 25 and would be a nice addition to a cornerback-needy team.
64. T.J. Edwards, LB, Age 27
2022: Tackles: 159 | Sacks: 2 | PBUs: 7 | INTs: 0
T.J. Edwards was a dynamic playmaker at the second level for the Eagles. He had a ridiculous 159 tackles and had a knack for being around the football no matter where it went. Edwards likely will get priced out by Philly’s cap situation and will be a top undervalued player in free agency.
MARCH 13 Update: The Bears and Edwards agreed to a three-year, $19.5 million deal.
65. Allen Lazard, WR, Age 27
2022: Rec. Yards: 788 | Rec. TDs: 6 | Catches: 60 | Avg: 13.1
Allen Lazard had career highs in every receiving category in 2022 after Davante Adams departed last offseason. How teams view him will depend on how much he will command this offseason, but he has shown the ability to be a productive NFL receiver.
MARCH 14 Update: The Jets and Lazard agreed to a four-year, $44 million deal.
66. Odell Beckham Jr, WR, Age 30
2022: Rec. Yards: 0 | Rec. TDs: 0 | Catches: 0 | Avg: 0
Odell Beckham Jr. held the NFL world captive when it seemed like he was going to sign during the 2022 season. However, he decided to wait until the offseason while recovering from the torn ACL he suffered during the Rams’ Super Bowl LVI win. If Beckham Jr. is healthy, he could be a steal.
67. Charles Omenihu, DE, Age 26
2022: Tackles: 20 | Sacks: 4.5 | Run Stuffs: 1 | FF: 1
Charles Omenihu did not make noise in the NFL prior to enjoying his best season as a pro in DeMeco Ryans’ 49ers defense during the 2022 season. Omenihu is a young pass rusher with room to develop even further.
68. Alexander Mattison, RB, Age 25
2022: Rush Yards: 283 | Rush TDs: 5 | Catches: 15 | Rec. Yards: 91
Alexander Mattison had a drop in production in 2022 but has shown in previous years to be a high-quality No. 2 back. He’s a good option for teams looking to create backfield depth.
69. Arden Key, DE, Age 27
2022: Tackles: 27 | Sacks: 4.5 | Run Stuffs: 1.5 | FF: 0
Arden Key’s 14.6 percent pressure rate during the past two seasons ties for 17th among edge defenders. Key led the Jaguars’ defensive line and edge rushers in pass-rush win rate and was second on the team in pressures and quarterback hits despite being a rotational player.
70. Parris Campbell, WR, Age 26
2022: Rec. Yards: 623 | Rec. TDs: 3 | Catches: 63 | Avg: 9.9
Parris Campbell is a dependable WR2/WR3. His game isn’t flashy, but he can consistently get open and played all 17 games last season.
71. Eli Apple, CB, Age 28
2022: Tackles: 49 | INTs: 0 | PBUs: 8 | FF: 0
Eli Apple was on the path to becoming a first-round bust but has revived his career in two seasons in Lou Anarumo’s Bengals defense. Apple has posted two very good seasons in terms of yards per cover snap. Apple does a good job preventing targets but could improve at the catch point.
72. Jacoby Brissett, QB, Age 30
2022: Passing Yards: 2,608 | Passing TDs: 12 | INTs: 6 | QBR: 60
Jacoby Brissett exceeded expectations filling in for Deshaun Watson. The Browns’ offense ranked sixth in EPA per play under Brissett compared to 24th in Weeks 13-18 under Watson. Brissett showed he can be the starter for a good offense with pieces around him. Brissett should be targeted by teams looking for a bridge quarterback or short-term starter.
73. Marcus Mariota, QB, Age 29
2022: Passing Yards: 2,219 | Passing TDs: 15 | INTs: 9 | QBR: 55.5
Marcus Mariota started the first 13 games of the 2022 season for the Falcons before being benched for rookie Desmond Ridder, who started the final four games. Atlanta released Mariota in a cost-cutting move. He’s now had two opportunities with two different teams at a starting role. It might be time to look for a No. 2 job, a role he served for two seasons with the Raiders backing up Derek Carr.
74. Juwan Johnson, TE, Age 26
2022: Rec. Yards: 508 | Rec. TDs: 7 | Catches: 42 | Avg: 12.1
Juwan Johnson had a breakout season, finishing third in TDs by a tight end and in the top 20 for catches and yards. He was a huge red-zone option for the Saints. The 26-year-old is an ascending tight end and is an interesting option for those looking to add athleticism and speed to the position.
75. Ogbonnia Okoronkwo, DE, Age 28
2022: Tackles: 44 | Sacks: 5 | Run Stuffs: 6 | FF: 1
Ogbonnia Okoronkwo has experience playing as a stand-up pass rusher and a down lineman. He had his most productive season for the Texans, and he plays with a lot of heart and energy on every snap.
76. Marcus Epps, S, Age 27
2022: Tackles: 94 | INTs: 0 | PBUs: 6 | FF: 1
Marcus Epps almost never came off the field for the Eagles in 2022. He wasn’t the flashiest player, but he’s dependable and can cover the deep ball and help in run defense. He will be a glue guy for whoever he plays for in 2023.
77. Greg Gaines, IDL, Age 27
2022: Tackles: 36 | Sacks: 4 | Run Stuffs: 7.5 | FF: 0
Greg Gaines has been a consistent interior presence for the Rams. While he does not light it up in terms of sack numbers, he has been a great complement and anchor in the middle with Aaron Donald. Gaines’ ability would be missed in Los Angeles, but he should be seen as a nice defensive tackle option in this free-agent class.
78. Rashaan Evans, LB, Age 27
2022: Tackles: 159 | Sacks: 2 | PBUs: 4 | INTs: 0
Rashaan Evans ranked 21st in defensive snaps among all positions and was sixth in tackles. At only 27, he should be sought after on the market, and the Falcons should try to bring him back to lead their defense.
79. Irv Smith Jr., TE, Age 25
2022: Rec. Yards: 182 | Rec. TDs: 2 | Catches: 25 | Avg: 7.3
Irv Smith‘s production dropped after the acquisition of T.J. Hockenson, but he had a quality 2020 season before missing the entire 2021 season due to injury. Interested teams will bet they can rekindle the potential he flashed early in his career.
80. Adrian Amos, S, Age 30
2022: Tackles: 102 | INTs: 1 | PBUs: 5 | FF: 0
Adrian Amos had an up-and-down 2022 season but has been one of the more productive safeties in the league the past few years. He can fly around the field and make tackles, making him an easy upgrade for most teams at the position.
81. Jadeveon Clowney, DE, Age 30
2022: Tackles: 28 | Sacks: 2 | Run Stuffs: 8 | FF: 1
Jadeveon Clowney had an off year in terms of sack production but his pressure rate was on par with his career average. Clowney is one of the better run defenders at his position. His low sack total is misleading given his pressure rate, but Clowney is an average pass rusher.
82. Drue Tranquill, LB, Age 28
2022: Tackles: 146 | Sacks: 5 | PBUs: 4 | INTs: 1
Drue Tranquill burst onto the scene with a team-high in tackles and multiple sacks and turnovers to match. He can perform at every level of the defense, and many teams should be interested in him as a cost-effective off-ball linebacker.
83. Sheldon Rankins, IDL, Age 29
2022: Tackles: 43 | Sacks: 3 | Run Stuffs: 5 | FF: 1
Sheldon Rankins is about to enter his eighth season in the NFL after five seasons in New Orleans and two with the Jets. Rankins is not a top-tier option at defensive tackle, but he is a good interior pass-rushing option for a team that needs help on the defensive line.
84. Devin McCourty, S, Age 36
2022: Tackles: 71 | INTs: 4 | PBUs: 8 | FF: 0
Devin McCourty has been with New England since the 2010 season and has been remarkably durable. He has not missed a regular-season game since 2015. He will be 36 entering his 14th season, but his level of play suggests there is still something left in the tank.
85. Andrew Wylie, OT, Age 29
2022: Snaps: 1,093 | Penalties: 8 | Sacks Allowed: 9 | Pressures: 49
Andrew Wylie played the game of his life in Super Bowl LVII, capping a career year in which he started every game and made tremendous strides. Wylie has peaked at the right time for a fine payday, and his timing is excellent because the tackle market is not deep.
86. Dre’Mont Jones, IDL, Age 26
2022: Tackles: 47 | Sacks: 6.5 | Run Stuffs: 8 | FF: 1
Dre’Mont Jones was a welcome force on a deep Broncos’ defensive front. Bradley Chubb was traded, and Randy Gregory and Baron Browning missed games for various reasons. Jones stepped in to lead the charge on the opposing quarterbacks.
87. Mecole Hardman, WR, Age 25
2022: Rec. Yards: 297 | Rec. TDs: 4 | Catches: 25 | Avg: 11.9
Mecole Hardman was a gadget player for the Chiefs, scoring six touchdowns, all in the red zone this season. He is coming off pelvis surgery, and given the new weapons in Kansas City, it looks like he will find somewhere else to call home. His 4.33 speed and versatility will be attractive to teams.
88. Dane Jackson, CB, Age 26
2022: Tackles: 57 | INTs: 2 | PBUs: 12 | FF: 1
Dane Jackson was taken in the seventh round of the 2020 NFL Draft. Since then, he has been a quality depth piece for the Bills’ secondary. After starting 14 regular-season games this season, Jackson proved he can handle some responsibility on the backend if a team needs him to step in.
89. Connor McGovern, IOL, Age 30
2022: Snaps: 1,111 | Penalties: 4 | Sacks Allowed: 5 | Pressures: 24
Connor McGovern started every game at center for the Jets this season and was in the top third for both pass-block grade and run-block grade. McGovern will be appealing to teams looking for a veteran starting center.
90. Isaiah Wynn, OT, Age 27
2022: Snaps: 423 | Penalties: 9 | Sacks Allowed: 4 | Pressures: 17
Isaiah Wynn was drafted in the first round of the 2018 draft, and he has played an average of 8.5 games per season. He missed his rookie year due to injury and has yet to play a full season in five years. He likely will be viewed as a swing tackle in free agency.
91. Elandon Roberts, LB, Age 29
2022: Tackles: 107 | Sacks: 4.5 | PBUs: 0 | INTs: 0
Elandon Roberts was one of the best pass rushers at inside linebacker this season, but he greatly struggled in coverage and in run defense. Any team with a poor pass rush might try and maximize his production as a blitzer.
92. Will Hernandez, IOL, Age 28
2022: Snaps: 843 | Penalties: 7 | Sacks Allowed: 3 | Pressures: 16
Will Hernandez had a rough season in 2021, which ultimately became his final season with the Giants. However, Hernandez responded well after signing a one-year deal with Arizona and might have earned himself some value on the open market.
93. Austin Hooper, TE, Age 28
2022: Rec. Yards: 444 | Rec. TDs: 2 | Catches: 41 | Avg: 10.8
Austin Hooper is a serviceable receiver and a solid blocker. He will rarely be the point of attack as a blocker, but he’s consistent enough to plug into an offense and have a role.
94. Billy Turner, OT, Age 31
2022: Snaps: 483 | Penalties: 1 | Sacks Allowed: 2 | Pressures: 19
The offensive tackle market is thin, so two-time Bronco Billy Turner could find himself a decent payday from a needy team. Turner isn’t an All-Pro talent, but he is good enough to start for many teams.
95. Jordan Akins, TE, Age 31
2022: Rec. Yards: 495 | Rec. TDs: 5 | Catches: 37 | Avg: 13.4
Jordan Akins is an undervalued player at the position and a consistent performer. The Texans used him a lot for check-downs, and he hasn’t been on a team with elite quarterback play to maximize his abilities since Deshaun Watson in 2020.
96. Justin Houston, DE, Age 34
2022: Tackles: 21 | Sacks: 9.5 | Run Stuffs: 2 | FF: 1
Justin Houston continues to produce as a pass rusher even at 34. His 11.5 sacks for the Ravens were the most he has had since 2018. He is at his best when placed in a role that limits him to mostly pass-rush situations.
97. Jerick McKinnon, RB, Age 31
2022: Rush Yards: 291 | Rush TDs: 1 | Catches: 56 | Rec. Yards: 512
Jerick McKinnon was record-setting in the receiving game this season, with nine receiving touchdowns. He proved to be a productive third-down back, and there were many games when he was the Chiefs’ No. 2 receiver.
98. Rashaad Penny, RB, Age 27
2022: Rush Yards: 346 | Rush TDs: 2 | Catches: 4 | Rec. Yards: 16
Rashaad Penny showed he has the potential to be a lead back at the end of the 2021 season, and many hoped that would carry into 2022. That didn’t happen because Penny battled injuries. The reality is Penny is neither consistent nor healthy enough (he’s missed an average of eight games per season) to maintain such a role, which will affect how teams view him.
99. A’Shawn Robinson, DT, Age 28
2022: Tackles: 42 | Sacks: 0 | Run Stuffs: 2 | FF: 0
Much like his teammate Gaines, A’Shawn Robinson is a nice rotational defensive lineman. Robinson will help in the run game, and it should not take a crazy deal to get someone with his skill set.
100. Troy Hill, CB, Age 32
2022: Tackles: 67 | INTs: 1 | PBUs: 4 | FF: 0
Troy Hill returned to the Rams in 2022 after a one-year stint with the Browns, and he was a solid contributor. However, his age is a concern, which means he is likely going to receive a shorter contract, whether he stays in Los Angeles or goes elsewhere.
101. Larry Ogunjobi, DE, Age 29
2022: Tackles: 48 | Sacks: 1.5 | Run Stuffs: 8 | FF: 0
Larry Ogunjobi posted his lowest sack total since his rookie season in 2017. However, Ogunjobi has been a capable rotation player to low-level starter for three different teams and should have a market.
102. DJ Chark, WR, Age 26
2022: Rec. Yards: 502 | Rec. TDs: 3 | Catches: 30 | Avg: 16.7
DJ Chark started to come on late in the season as he and Jared Goff developed a better connection. He has the speed to blow the top off a defense. Detroit will try to bring him back, but many other teams will inquire about his services.
103. Kareem Hunt, RB, Age 28
2022: Rush Yards: 468 | Rush TDs: 3 | Catches: 35 | Rec. Yards: 210
Kareem Hunt was less efficient as a runner in 2022 but flashed big-play ability. Hunt was frustrated playing a secondary role to Nick Chubb, and he has a point because he has the tools to be a solid three-down back.
104. George Fant, OT, Age 31
2022: Snaps: 516 | Penalties: 7 | Sacks Allowed: 5 | Pressures: 27
George Fant started seven games for the Jets this season, but a team looking at him in free agency most likely would prefer to have him serve as a swing tackle who can start in case of emergencies.
105. Rock Ya-Sin, CB, Age 27
2022: Tackles: 45 | INTs: 0 | PBUs: 7 | FF: 0
Rock Ya-Sin is a good, young developmental defensive back who would make a solid No. 2 or No. 3 corner on many teams. He is 6 feet, 190 pounds, making him ideal size for a slot cornerback if a team needed that.
106. Bradley Roby, CB, Age 31
2022: Tackles: 36 | INTs: 0 | PBUs: 5 | FF: 0
Bradley Roby fought through injuries and showed improvement this season. New Orleans has to shed salary to be cap compliant, but the Saints have been a good fit for him.
107. Devin Bush, LB, Age 25
2022: Tackles: 81 | Sacks: 0 | PBUs: 2 | INTs: 0
The Devin Bush experiment is likely coming to a rough end in Pittsburgh, where he was benched down the stretch of the 2022 season. Bush has solid strength and speed, which should keep him employed in the league.
108. Marvin Jones, WR, Age 33
2022: Rec. Yards: 529 | Rec. TDs: 3 | Catches: 46 | Avg: 11.5
Marvin Jones is inconsistent at creating big plays but will show flashes of brilliance with ball tracking and speed. He’s a good low-budget WR3 to add depth to a team’s roster, but he brings good size (6-foot-2, 198 pounds) and experience.
109. Kaden Elliss, LB, Age 28
2022: Tackles: 78 | Sacks: 7 | PBUs: 2 | INTs: 0
Kaden Elliss had a breakout season in 2022. Elliss and Pete Werner could head the linebacker group and take care of the Saints’ needs there for years to come. The Saints should make a big effort to retain Eliss despite their lack of cap space.
110. Mike Edwards, S, Age 27
2022: Tackles: 82 | INTs: 2 | PBUs: 3 | FF: 0
Heading into his age-27 season at a key spot in the Buccaneers’ defensive scheme, Mike Edwards has shown great potential. Tampa Bay likely will bring him back while letting Logan Ryan and Keanu Neal walk. Edwards is expected to shoulder a heavier load next season.
111. David Onyemata, IDL, Age 30
2022: Tackles: 43 | Sacks: 5 | Run Stuffs: 4.5 | FF: 0
David Onyemata had his best season since 2020 in 2022. He was one of the Saints’ most consistent players in terms of production and availability. He’s low on this list, but he could fetch good money on the market because he does so many things well.
112. Terrell Edmunds, S, Age 26
2022: Tackles: 70 | INTs: 0 | PBUs: 5 | FF: 0
Terrell Edmunds hasn’t lived up to expectations as a first-round pick, but he has five years of starting experience. Edmunds can be a solid contributor as a third safety who competes for a starting job.
113. Darius Slayton, WR, Age 26
2022: Rec. Yards: 724 | Rec. TDs: 2 | Catches: 46 | Avg: 15.7
Darius Slayton wasn’t a sure thing to even survive the Giants’ final cut last summer. Yet he did and began the season as WR7. He gained the coaching staff’s trust and eventually became the Giants’ No. 1 deep threat.
114. Taylor Heinicke, QB, Age 30
2022: Passing Yards: 1,859 | Passing TDs: 12 | INTs: 6 | QBR: 44.4
It was an up-and-down season for Taylor Heinicke. He began as Carson Wentz’s backup, then started after Wentz’s injury. He won five of his first six starts before struggling down the stretch. He failed to win his last three starts and was benched. Still, he profiles as a solid backup quarterback.
115. Akiem Hicks, IDL, Age 33
2022: Tackles: 22 | Sacks: 1 | Run Stuffs: 4 | FF: 0
Akiem Hicks missed six games due to a plantar fasciitis tear and didn’t make much of an impact once he got back on the field. He brings a nice veteran presence and will look to bounce back next season. We expect him to sign somewhere else because the Buccaneers have cap issues and a capable, more cost-effective replacement they could re-sign in Rakeem Nunez-Roches.
116. D’Onta Foreman, RB, Age 27
2022: Rush Yards: 914 | Rush TDs: 5 | Catches: 5 | Rec. Yards: 26
D’Onta Foreman is a true ground-and-pound running back and one of the bigger backs in the league at 6-foot-1, 236 pounds. He’s not explosive, but he’s a great power back for any team looking to add toughness to their ground game.
117. Matt Ioannidis, IDL, Age 29
2022: Tackles: 37 | Sacks: 1 | Run Stuffs: 6 | FF: 1
118. Samaje Perine, RB, Age 27
2022: Rush Yards: 394 | Rush TDs: 2 | Catches: 38 | Rec. Yards: 287
Samaje Perine was great in his role as a third-down back in Cincinnati. He is one of the best pass-blocking backs in the NFL and is a capable runner and receiver. Perine can contribute a lot to any backfield committee.
119. DeShon Elliott, S, Age 26
2022: Tackles: 96 | INTs: 1 | PBUs: 3 | FF: 1
120. Foster Moreau, TE, Age 26
2022: Rec. Yards: 420 | Rec. TDs: 2 | Catches: 33 | Avg: 12.7
Foster Moreau filled in nicely for the Raiders in Darren Waller’s absence and showed he can be a reliable pass-catching tight end. Moreau could be a steal and give a franchise a big boost at tight end.
121. Kyzir White, LB, Age 27
2022: Tackles: 110 | Sacks: 1.5 | PBUs: 7 | INTs: 0
Kyzir White is a fun, electrifying force at linebacker. He thrived in Jonathan Gannon’s defense as an off-ball linebacker in 2022. He has excellent speed and can run sideline-to-sideline with ease.
122. Geno Stone, S, Age 24
2022: Tackles: 38 | INTs: 0 | PBUs: 1 | FF: 1
A former seventh-round pick, Geno Stone found himself playing consistent snaps each week for the Ravens. Stone played well filling in as a starter and maintained a role even when the starting safeties returned. Expect Baltimore to bring him back.
123. Duron Harmon, S, Age 32
2022: Tackles: 86 | INTs: 2 | PBUs: 5 | FF: 2
Duron Harmon is a consistent force at safety. He forced four total turnovers and is silky smooth in coverage. His age is a downside, but any team looking for a veteran safety on a short-term deal should look at Harmon.
124. Nasir Adderley, S, Age 26
2022: Tackles: 62 | INTs: 2 | PBUs: 4 | FF: 1
Nasir Adderley stepped into the difficult AFC West and produced well for the Chargers whenever Derwin James was absent. Adderley is ready to take the next step and become a full-time starter. His stats could double with the additional playing time.
125. Denzel Perryman, LB, Age 30
2022: Tackles: 83 | Sacks: 1 | PBUs: 2 | INTs: 2
Denzel Perryman dealt with injuries this season and missed five games. When he was on the field, he was as productive as ever and back on his 2021 Pro Bowl pace. However, a 30-year-old linebacker with a shoulder injury will scare off some teams.
126. Jerry Tillery, IDL, Age 26
2022: Tackles: 18 | Sacks: 1 | Run Stuffs: 1 | FF: 1
Jerry Tillery was claimed off waivers by the Raiders and played the second half of the season in Vegas. He did not record a sack with his new team and was mostly a run-stopper. Tillery will draw interest from teams who need an athletic defensive tackle on a budget.
127. Cody Ford, IOL, Age 26
2022: Snaps: 350 | Penalties: 2 | Sacks Allowed: 3 | Pressures: 20
Cody Ford was a much-anticipated second-round pick by the Bills in 2019, but he has struggled in the NFL. Ford started in only three games for the Cardinals, so it is likely another team will have a chance to pick him up for a low price.
128. Kwon Alexander, LB, Age 29
2022: Tackles: 69 | Sacks: 0.5 | PBUs: 1 | INTs: 0
Kwon Alexander is a middle-tier inside linebacker. He has not had many flashes. Any team seeking inside linebacker depth or a cheap starting option could look to Alexander.
129. LaMarcus Joyner, S, Age 32
2022: Tackles: 57 | INTs: 3 | PBUs: 6 | FF: 0
Lamarcus Joyner struggled at free safety this year, and the Jets probably will replace him. Joyner has plenty of experience though, so a team with a young secondary might go after him.
130. Emmanuel Moseley, CB, Age 27
2022: Tackles: 22 | INTs: 1 | PBUs: 5 | FF: 0
Emmanuel Moseley flashed ability as an outside corner, but injuries have riddled him, especially a season-ending ACL tear in October. Moseley’s recovery is worth monitoring for the 49ers, or other franchises that may be interested in him.
131. Devin Singletary, RB, Age 26
2022: Rush Yards: 819 | Rush TDs: 5 | Catches: 38 | Rec. Yards: 280
Devin Singletary was the Bills’ starting running back this season, but RB James Cook ran much more efficiently when he got his opportunities. Singletary likely is headed to a new team in a backup role.
132. Andy Dalton, QB, Age 35
2022: Passing Yards: 2,871 | Passing TDs: 18 | INTs: 9 | QBR: 50.7
The definition of a solid backup QB, Andy Dalton filled in for Jameis Winston when he went down with an injury. Dalton is an asset to any team looking to add depth at QB, but likely not as a starter unless the Saints bring him back.
133. Raekwon McMillan, LB, Age 27
2022: Tackles: 35 | Sacks: 1 | PBUs: 0 | INTs: 0
Raekwon McMillan played in 16 games for the Patriots this past season, but he didn’t produce much on the stat sheet. If a team is looking for a downhill, thumper to stop the run, McMillan could be useful.
134. Damien Harris, RB, Age 26
2022: Rush Yards: 462 | Rush TDs: 3 | Catches: 17 | Rec. Yards: 97
Damien Harris was slowly fazed out of the offense this season, and Rhamondre Stevenson did much better with his workload. Harris also has struggled with injuries, so he probably will sign with another team as a second- or third-string back.
135. Baker Mayfield, QB, Age 28
2022: Passing Yards: 2,163 | Passing TDs: 10 | INTs: 8 | QBR: 24.5
The former No. 1 overall pick took an opportunity with the Rams after things did not work out in Carolina to start the season. You have to love the charisma Baker Mayfield possesses. He seems best suited as a backup but could find a hole in this market, where several teams are looking for a starting quarterback.
136. Jermaine Eluemunor, OT, Age 28
2022: Snaps: 940 | Penalties: 10 | Sacks Allowed: 3 | Pressures: 26
Jermaine Eluemunor graded out to be a solid right tackle for the Raiders, despite flying under the radar for the majority of the season. He surrendered only three sacks and earned a 75.3 grade from Pro Football Focus. He might have been the most cost-effective player for the Raiders this past year.
137. Kyle Van Noy, LB, Age 32
2022: Tackles: 46 | Sacks: 5 | PBUs: 3 | INTs: 1
Kyle Van Noy was a welcome addition to the Chargers, with 32 solo tackles, five sacks, and 37 pressures. Van Noy has the versatility to play inside as a run stopper and outside as an edge pass rusher. That’s the veteran savvy that makes him a valuable chess piece.
138. Jonathan Owens, S, Age 28
2022: Tackles: 125 | INTs: 0 | PBUs: 4 | FF: 0
Jonathan Owens is a low-risk, high-reward type of player. He played a lot of Tampa 2 last year under former Texans coach Lovie Smith.
139. Carson Wentz, QB, Age 30
2022: Passing Yards: 1,755 | Passing TDs: 11 | INTs: 9 | QBR: 33.0
You could make a good case that Wentz doesn’t belong on this list after what’s happened to his career over the last three years, but quarterbacks are too valuable, especially ones — who in the right system and with the right coach — can be more than serviceable in a backup role. That might be tough to accept for a player like Wentz, who sees himself as a starter.
140. DeMarcus Walker, DE, Age 28
2022: Tackles: 32 | Sacks: 7 | Run Stuffs: 6.5 | FF: 0
DeMarcus Walker had a breakout season as he set career highs in sacks, combined tackles, and QB hits. He displayed the ability to work across all positions on the defensive line and appeared in all 17 games. He needs to improve his hands and technique to get around offensive linemen better since he gets held up too often.
141. Chris Manhertz, TE, Age 31
2022: Rec. Yards: 42 | Rec. TDs: 0 | Catches: 42 | Avg: 7
Chris Manhertz won’t be a threat as a receiver and has never had double-digit targets in a season. He is mainly used for his exceptional run blocking. He maintains good leverage and churns through his opponents with good lower-leg drive.
142. Andrew Adams, S, Age 30
2022: Tackles: 62 | INTs: 1 | PBUs: 3 | FF: 0
Andrew Adams is a seven-year veteran who had a mediocre 2022 season with the Titans but showed strong coverage in his first six seasons. He allowed a 63.2 percent passer rating during that span.
143. Matt Pryor, OT, Age 28
2022: Snaps: 576 | Penalties: 5 | Sacks Allowed: 6 | Pressures: 31
Matt Pryor has a lot of position flexibility and was solid as an interior offensive lineman in rushing situations last season.
144. Carl Nassib, DE, Age 30
2022: Tackles: 23 | Sacks: 3.5 | Run Stuffs: 4 | FF: 0
Carl Nassib played decently this season and is a quality depth guy on the edge but not a difference-maker. He can provide a nice veteran presence on a defensive line.
145. Rakeem Nunez-Roches, DE, Age 30
2022: Tackles: 33 | Sacks: 2 | Run Stuffs: 7.5 | FF: 0
Rakeem Nunez-Roches filled in for Hicks when he got injured and earned a spot in the rotation. He was consistent and played hard. The Buccaneers may bring him back on a cheap deal and have him step into a bigger role.
146. Justin Bethel, S, Age 33
2022: Tackles: 26 | INTs: 1 | PBUs: 4 | FF: 0
There was not much production from Justin Bethel this season despite playing in 18 games. He only played 125 snaps and is likely to take another depth role with whatever team he signs with.
147. DeAndre Carter, WR, Age 30
2022: Rec. Yards: 538 | Rec. TDs: 3 | Catches: 46 | Avg: 11.7
DeAndre Carter was a reliable slot target for the Chargers while Keenan Allen and Mike Williams missed time because of injuries. Even at 30, he is explosive and a jitterbug with the ball in his hands. His three fumbles might hurt his stock.
148. Jarvis Landry, WR, Age 30
2022: Rec. Yards: 272 | Rec. TDs: 1 | Catches: 25 | Avg: 10.9
Jarvis Landry was plagued by injuries this season and was not impressive when on the field. He will try to bounce back next season, and he has the hands and veteran know-how to help a team if he can stay healthy.
149. Rodger Saffold, IOL, Age 35
2022: Snaps: 1,058 | Penalties: 10 | Sacks Allowed: 2 | Pressures: 36
Rodger Saffold started every game for the Bills at guard, but his play wasn’t up to starting caliber. He gave up only two sacks, but he was in the bottom third in PFF’s pass block grades and was one of the worst interior offensive linemen in the run game. Saffold likely will take a depth role for a team that needs experience on the offensive line.
150. Sam Darnold, QB, Age 30
2022: Passing Yards: 1,143 | Passing TDs: 7 | INTs: 3 | QBR: 48.3
Sam Darnold showed signs of life when he returned as the Panthers’ starter at the end of the season. At this stage of his career, Darnold is probably best suited as a backup, but he also could be viewed as a low-end starter for a team seeking a bridge quarterback.
