2015 Philadelphia Eagles undrafted free agents

PHILADELPHIA -- The Eagles signed 15 undrafted free agents after Saturday's draft. Here's a closer look at each player.

Rasheed Bailey, wide receiver, Delaware Valley College. Bailey is a Philadelphia kid who played at a small local college. But he has big-time size (6-foot-2, 205 pounds) and caught 80 passes for 1,707 yards and 19 touchdowns last season. The Eagles will find out how he holds up against the big boys.

Brett Boyko, offensive line, UNLV. The 6-foot-7, 301-pound Boyko is on the right side of Chip Kelly's “big people beat up little people” credo. Kelly said Saturday that the Eagles need to find some offensive linemen to develop. Boyko will get every chance.

Malcolm Bunche, offensive tackle, UCLA. Bunche played for the University of Miami before transferring to UCLA as a graduate student. He lost his starting left tackle job during the season and then missed the Alamo Bowl due to academic issues. He is 6-foot-6, 310 pounds.

Mike Coccia, offensive line, New Hampshire. The 6-foot-3, 301-pound Coccia is from Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, a former Eagles training camp site, and played at New Hampshire, Chip Kelly's old stomping grounds. As a center, Coccia started 40 games in his college career.

Devante Davis, wide receiver, UNLV. Davis has good size at 6-foot-3, 220 pounds, but is raw. He caught just 34 passes for 599 yards and four touchdowns last season.

Jordan DeWalt-Ondijo, outside linebacker, Duke. DeWalt-Ondijo goes 6-foot-4, 240 pounds. He had 4.5 sacks last season. The Eagles will see if he has the potential to get to NFL quarterbacks.

Andrew Gleichert, tight end, Michigan State. The 6-foot-5 Gleichert will have an opportunity because of the departure of tight end James Casey. The Eagles weren't able to draft a tight end this week. Gleichert caught just eight passes in his career, but is a capable blocker. In Kelly's offense, that's a plus.

John Harris, wide receiver, Texas. The 6-foot-2, 218-pound Harris barely made an impact in his first three years, playing for coach Mack Brown. With Charlie Strong taking over in 2014, Harris caught 68 passes for 1,051 yards and seven touchdowns as a senior.

Cole Manhart, guard, Nebraska-Kearney. The 6-foot-6, 300-pound Manhart played tackle at Nebraska-Kearney. He will be dealing with a higher level of competition and likely a position change to guard, but he has potential.

Raheem Mostert, running back, Purdue. Mostert has exceptional speed, winning the Big Ten track championships in the 100- and 200-meter dashes. His numbers as a running back -- 529 yards on 93 carries -- weren't that impressive, but he led the nation in 2011 with an average of 33.5 yards per kickoff return.

Travis Raciti, defensive line, San Jose State. Raciti is 6-foot-5, 285 pounds, and may be one of these hybrid guys who could be a big outside linebacker or a smallish defensive end. Chip Kelly likes to get these guys onto the practice field and figure it out there.

Denzel Rice, cornerback, Coastal Carolina. The 6-foot, 190-pound Rice told the Winston-Salem Journal that he hoped to go on the third day of the draft but that he would be a “premium free agent” if he wasn't. Pretty good scouting report by a cornerback with good size.

Kip Smith, punter, Oklahoma State. Smith started his college career at UCLA as a field goal kicker. He finished it at Oklahoma State as a punter. Smith averaged 41.8 yards per punt as a senior.

Eric Tomlinson, tight end, Texas-El Paso. Another candidate to take James Casey's roster spot. Tomlinson goes 6-foot-6, 263 pounds and is a blocking tight end by trade. Given how much the Eagles intend to run the ball, that's not a bad thing.

Justin Tukes, tight end, Central Florida. There's a pattern with the tight ends on this list. Tukes caught 30 passes for 286 yards and three touchdowns -- in his entire college career. Kelly is clearly looking for a blocking tight end to replace James Casey. The 6-foot-5, 250-pound Tukes has the size for the job.
