NFL Free Agency: Top players left following draft

The market is pretty barron at this point, but several notable veterans are still waiting to be signed following the NFL draft.

Tim Fuller-USA TODAY Sports

The 2015 NFL draft is over, and now teams are filling out their rosters to get to the 90-man limit.

Some teams will reach that limited simply by signing their draft picks and adding a few undrafted free agents. However, others are still looking at veterans still waiting to be signed. One of the best on the market is middle linebacker Brandon Spikes, who just visited the Patriots.

If he doesn't sign with them, Spikes would easily be the best player left on the market. Other veterans of note include Knowshon Moreno, Ahmad Bradshaw, James Jones and Wes Welker. Most of the aforementioned guys are or have dealt with injuries that have caused their markets to dry up. In a situation role with the right team, most, if not all of them could make a positive impact for a team next year.
