Kenneth Olugbode, LB, Colorado
Simply put, this man can do it all. In his time at Colorado, he totaled 264 tackles, 11 for loss, 3.5 sacks, three interceptions (one touchdown), nine pass deflections, six fumble recoveries and a forced fumble. Obviously his secondary teammates Chidobe Awuzie and Ahkello Witherspoon took all the attention, but Olugbode seemed to be a silent killer for the Buffs.
At about 6-foot-1, 225 pounds, he looks like a player whose best chance to play would be at WILL and as stated before, the question marks at the linebacker position could give a player like Olugbode an opportunity to shine.
Roster Chance: 6/10
Karter Schult, DL, Northern Iowa
A small school product? Or small school star? 35.5 sacks (17 senior season), 56 tackles for loss and five forced fumbles. They say numbers speak for themselves but in the case of small school players, there’s always doubt.

His skill set and size, 6-foot-3, 260 pounds, suggests he would play defensive end. This means he’d be competing with Garrett, Ogbah, Nassib, and Xavier Cooper for playing time as well as a spot. Not impossible, but not as likely as he may want. However, he could work his way to the practice squad, and eventually get a spot on the team, but I’d be surprised if he was on the roster for Week 1.
Roster Chance: 5/10
Channing Stribling, CB, Michigan
Almost all of Michigan’s secondary was drafted this season. To go along with Cleveland taking Jabrill Peppers, Delano Hill, Jourdan Lewis and Jeremy Clark were all drafted. However, Channing Stribling was the lone man out, which was bizarre considering his 5-6 round range. Along with Kai Nacua, Stribling was one of my favorite undrafted players this year and is who I give the best chance to make the final roster.
His career numbers are impressive (six interceptions, 15 pass deflections), and his size is good (6-foot-1, 190 pounds) but what may be best of all is coverage on the receiver. Scouts have lauded his ability to stay toe to toe with the opposing receivers. However, his strength has come into question and will need to improve on that. I, however, wouldn’t bet against a product of Harbaugh.
I know many (if not most) Browns fans are Buckeye fans and it will make them cringe to cheer for a Wolverine, but it’d be worth it in this case.
Roster Chance: 9/10
As the offseason continues into training camp and eventually preseason, some of these players will step up and above others, but as of today, if I had to guess how these 11 would end up, it’d be this way. Who knows? The next undrafted gem could very well be here and we don’t even know it yet.
