How amazing would it be if 3 UDFA's made this season's roster? If you would have told me that would be a serious possibility when the season ended earlier this year in Atlanta, I wouldn't have believed you. Especially after the team's activity in FA. Well, Bailey, Lotulelei, and Mayowa all stand the chance to crack the final 53. You seriously just never know with Pete and John. Earn Everything, Always Compete, etc. everyone associated with this team take's it to heart. It's amazing and I love it.
As for Lotulelei, he's already making himself one of my favorite guys to watch. At practice, I kept watching him on Special Teams and he would always end up around the ball. He's got that Jordan Babineaux gene, or so it seems, maybe he'll be this team's version of Big Play Babs? Plus, the team needs a dude with long hair (no dreads.)
I really hope that Bradford and Lotulelei stick, even at the expense of Heath Farwell who though I respect his game a ton, feel that like Leon Washington he can be replaced. You could essentially have Mike Rob fill Farwell's shoes and be the Special Teams Captain while then allowing Russell to be the Captain on Offense. Regardless of the logistics, Lotulelei's gonna put up a fight to make the final 53 and at the very least he'll end up on the Practice Squad or on someone else's Opening Day roster.
Edit: We absolutely can't let Heath Farwell go. I'm sorry I ever even thought about it Heath! Can't let him go after an interview like the one below. Mike Morgan, sorry dude, you just added 15 pounds for nothing cause you gotta go.

• If you could only have one meal, what would it be? “I think my go-to would be a Daniel’s porterhouse. Big fan of that. Mashed potatoes, asparagus, cold beer. I’d go Corona.”
• What’s your mentality on kickoffs? “You just want to be relentless. You just want to have your hair on fire. That’s what special teams is about.”
• If you played in the XFL, what would the name on the back of your jersey be? “I would be J.A.G. — Just Another Guy.”
Farwell and Lotulelei on Special Teams, with some Derrick Coleman sprinkled in? Now that would be fun to watch! That's what's so amazing about this team, they've got me more hyped than I've ever been in my life to watch even the Special Teams Unit!!! Wooo!!!
