Undrafted Free Agent Signings: Recapping the Rams' moves so far

It was a busy evening for NFL front offices, agents, players and fans as teams jumped into the waters of free agency chasing undrafted free agents with contract offers. The St. Louis Rams added a handful of players last night. GM Billy Devaney and Co. will probably be adding some more as the week goes on since camp rosters can be stuffed with 90 players this year, 10 more than normal. 

The big news is still uncomfirmed. Many considered Kentucky RB Derrick Locke to be one of the premier players available. Injury history and durability concerns kept him from being drafted in April. Several sources said that the Rams and Locke agreed to an offer, but nothing was confirmed. At one point, several people mentioned on Twitter reports that he had committed to the Vikings. Locke would be a great get for the Rams, a speedy, versatile playmaker in the mold of Dexter McCluster

Oregon State CB James Dockery was the first player to agree in principal with the Rams, at least the first to report doing so. Dockery has press skills and missed time in college with an injury. He'll be fighting an uphill battle for a roster spot with the Rams, but Spagnuolo does have a history with defensive backs. 

Texas Tech QB Taylor Potts will give the team another camp body at a minimum, but does profile as a very raw, but talented pocket passer that offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels has a history with over the years.

Arthur Thomas, a DT from the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff, also joins the Rams as an UDFA. Can he repeat the relative success of previous UDFA defensive tackle Jermelle Cudjo?

Late in the evening it was reported that they added another CB, Dionte Dinkins from Fort Valley State. Dinkins is a tall corner at 6'1" 196 lbs, and not particularly fast with a 4.5s forty time. 

We'll be profiling each player and updating this list as the week goes along, so stay tuned. Be sure to follow us on Twitter for up to the minute action. A complete list of UDFA signings so far is here, courtesy of NE Patriots Draft.
