Here's a brief synopsis of where they stand, though could have a lot of outdated information. Feel free to correct and update.

Brandon Allen:      Jacksonville Jaguars- 3rd string behind Henne though will likely phase Henne out
Jared Collins:        Los Angeles Rams-UDFA, but they've lost good talent in free agency, realistic roster shot
Alex Collins:         Seattle Seahawks- Backup RB behind Rawls, Lacy, and different role than Procise.
Knile Davis:          Pittsburgh Steelers- Been shuffled around a lot lately, KR specialist mostly but has the physical attributes to be a star if any coach can mentally get him there.

A.J. Derby:           Denver Broncos- traded there last year, started to pick up steam as a player. Drafting Butt could really cut into Derby's production though.

Brooks Ellis:          New England Patriots-UDFA, they are pretty good at LB. Practice squad is probably ceiling right now

Trey Flowers:        New England Patriots- super bowl star, started about half the season last year
Chris Gragg:         Buffalo Bills- was on the roster bubble last year but injury allowed them to keep him on the IR, iirc. Really make or break this off-seaon for him.

Cobi Hamilton:      Pittsburgh Steelers- Finally was starting to be an important rotational player for them. However, with Bryant back and some of the draft moves, they are definitely not content at receiver. Worst case, some other team will have seen what Hamilton did and perhaps give him a shot.

Keon Hatcher:       Oakland Raiders- UDFA, but they could use some more receiver help. Plus, his physical style of play is perfect for the offense they are wanting to run. Realistic chance to make the roster, likely to make practice squad at worst.

Hunter Henry:        Los Angeles Chargers- entrenched as the #2 behind HoF Gates but still getting plenty of work.

Javontee Herndon: Los Angeles Chargers- Did some good work for them a season ago but spent the year on IR last year. They like him in the Chargers but he needs a good off-season to stay likely.

Cody Hollister:       New England Patriots- UDFA. His special teams skills could get him a roster spot but unlikely if that is the only place he contributes. He showed some flashes as a WR when healthy but not a lot. With his height and strength, could become a TE/H-back for them.
   
Sam Irwin-Hill:      Dallas Cowboys- Cowboy's aren't in desperate need for a punter but competition always helps.

Cameron Jefferson: Buffalo Bills - He was on the practice squad for the bears a while back, which isn't bad for not starting in college.

Denver Kirkland:    Oakland Raiders - started to get some work last season iirc as an extra blocker.

Jeremiah Ledbetter: Detroit Lions - Lions have lost productive DL players so he will have a chance
Mitchell Loewen:      New Orleans Saints- Saints have somewhat established starters, but need more of a pass rush. Could be a situational player, but practice squad is probably the ceiling.

Ryan Mallett:          Baltimore Ravens- entrenched as Flacco's backup and doing well.
Darren McFadden:   Dallas Cowboys- Elliot's backup and got a somewhat surprising extension.
Tevin Mitchel:         Indianapolis Colts- Colts are desperate for secondary play. They value him after snatching off of washington's IR.

Drew Morgan:         Miami Dolphins- UDFA, following a bit too much in welker's path
Jason Peters:         Philadelphia Eagles- all pro, possibly future hof, getting old though
Darius Philon:        Los Angeles Chargers- Bosa really took his spot, now Bosa's backup
Dan Skipper:         Dallas Cowboys - A good run blocking RT for them, but struggles with good pass rushers on the edge. They just lost their RT so there is opportunity. However, if he makes the team, will likely be more as an extra run blocker in the jumbo packages.

Chris Smith:          Cincinnati Bengals- designated pass rusher but buried in jax. Cincy traded for him so they clearly value him.

Martrell Spaight:    Washington Redskins- mostly a backup so far, but spoken well by teammates, could become a starter this year or next.

Jeremy Sprinkle:    Washington Redskins- Reed is a very good TE, but often injured.
Travis Swanson:     Detroit Lions- Started 12 games last year but nobody is safe as a starter on that porous OL

Robert Thomas:      New York Giants- been with washington for a while. Now with giants. Never been on the 53 man roster for more than a couple of weeks though been in the NFL for several seasons now.

Sebastian Tretola:  Tennessee Titans - appeared in 1 game last year. No idea what his future holds there.
Jonathan Williams: Buffalo Bills- had some carries and did well. They got rid of a lot of the players in front of him so his playing time should increase.

Deatrich Wise Jr.:   New England Patriots- Going into his rookie year. More athletic, explosive, and stronger than flowers along with better height and arms. However, very prone to injury and not as complete. However, could be a major player if healthy.

Jarius Wright:        Minnesota Vikings - was on the roster bubble last year and they've been adding a lot of WR's. His production peaked in 2014. Only had 47 yards last year as a healthy scratch most of the time.

Speaking of Dan, hope he gets a legit shot.

Rookie offensive lineman Dan Skipper was expected to sign as a free agent with the rest of the class on Thursday. But the Cowboys team officials wanted to check out a previous issue Skipper informed the team about concerning his bloodwork. Head athletic trainer Jim Maurer went with Skipper Friday morning to a nearby clinic to get more tests. The results were good enough for Skipper to get on the field Friday on a tryout basis. The Cowboys still have the option to sign him to the roster this weekend.

UofA has certainly proved to be a legit steeping stone to the League. Nice. WPS.

Skipper officially signs with the Cowboys. Apparently he made the tryout.

Dominique Reed had a tryout spot with the Texans but didn't appear to make the cut. Key word is appear to make the cut since it ended 5 days ago and 3 days ago, one player was reported to have signed after trying out. However, that article specifically said "at least one" who tried out has signed. Not looking good for him though.

Also just saw that last month the browns cut Bailey. Terminated, Vested Veteran, all contracts? Don't know what that means.

Bailey had some troubles. Substance infraction with the league and arrested for a DUI in September. He's probably going to have to earn his way back into a backup role with some team... if he gets a shot at all.

This rookie receiver Drew Morgan has a knack for getting open.

Drew Morgan with another catch between the hashes during 7-on-7. I've already learned his number (81).Those who know me know what that means.

I was really impressed with undrafted Arkansas receiver Drew Morgan during Thursday’s practice, the third of the offseason and first open to the media. He repeatedly got open and caught at least four passes.
