Name the UDFA

-by DNOMN8R314

With June on the horizon and offseason workouts having commenced, it’s time for another quiz masquerading as an article. Below is a series of questions; for each, you must name the member of this year’s 20-man Patriots undrafted free agent class who fits.

A few points before beginning.

  • First, every UDFA will appear as a correct answer at least once.
  • Second, some questions will ask for a pair of players (noted at the end of the question); you must name both for full credit. (Not that the points matter.)
  • Third, please try answering all questions before looking at the answers, as some answers could spoil subsequent questions.
  • Fourth, some questions have more than one correct answer; any single correct answer will suffice.
  • Fifth, while you may repeat players as often as you like, there is a way to answer the first 19 questions (as many as UDFAs the Patriots initially signed before adding another) without repeating a single player. Try that if you’d like an extra challenge. (For that reason, the 20th and final question is a bonus.)

Let’s go.

Name a 2017 Patriots UDFA…

  1. …who played for a Division II football program?
  2. …who played for a Division I FCS football program?
  3. …who played for the same school as a 2017 Patriots draft pick?
  4. …who is currently wearing the same uniform number as he did in college?
  5. …who wore No. 50 in college?
  6. …who wore No. 24 in college?
  7. …who wore No. 13 in college?
  8. …who shares a last name with at least one other current Patriot, excluding other UDFAs?
  9. …whose last name is also a common first name?
  10. …whose first and last initials are the same letter?
  11. …whose last name is listed on the Patriots website as including a suffix?
  12. …whose last name is also a common English word?
  13. …whose first and last names are acceptable words in Scrabble?
  14. …whose last name is a U.S. state capital?
  15. …whose first name is a U.S. state capital?
  16. …who shares a uniform number with a member of the 2016 Patriots?
  17. …who shares a uniform number with another 2017 Patriots UDFA? (*pair of players*)
  18. …who attended a college in Utah?
  19. …who was among the initial 19 UDFA signings and received no guaranteed money, both in base salary and signing bonus?
  20. BONUS: …who played for the same school as another 2017 Patriots UDFA? (*pairs of players*; one point for each pairing)

That’s the lot.

How do you think you did? Only you know. But now you’ll get to know how well you actually did.

Answers:

  1. Kenny Moore, who attended Valdosta State.
  2. David Jones, who played for Richmond.
  3. Brooks Ellis and Cody Hollister both attended Arkansas, from where the Patriots drafted Deatrich Wise Jr.
  4. Again, Brooks Ellis and Cody Hollister were the correct answers, wearing 51 and 81, respectively.
  5. Corey Vereen and Andrew Jelks.
  6. D.J. Killings and Kenny Moore.
  7. Dwayne Thomas and David Jones.
  8. David Jones shares his surname with fellow defensive backs Cyrus and Jonathan, while Adam Butler’s surname is more well-known as that of cornerback Malcolm.
  9. Max Rich, Dwayne Thomas, and Damarius Travis.
  10. Cole Croston.
  11. LeShun Daniels Jr.
  12. Quite a few answers here – any of Adam Butler, Sam Cotton, David Jones (as in “jonesing” or craving for something), D.J. Killings, Jason King, and Max Rich were acceptable.
  13. Max Rich.
  14. Josh Augusta (Maine).
  15. Austin (Texas) Carr.
  16. Dwayne Thomas (shares 27 with D.J. Foster) and Jason King (shares 74 with Woodrow Hamilton).
  17. Jacob Hollister and Harvey Langi (48), Adam Butler and Cole Croston (70), and Josh Augusta and Max Rich (72).
  18. Harvey Langi (BYU) and Jason Thompson (Utah).
  19. Andrew Jelks. (Give yourself a third of a point if you guessed Cole Croston, as I couldn’t find any information about his guaranteed money or potential lack of it.)
  20. The three pairs are worth one point each: Brooks Ellis and Cody Hollister (Arkansas), Cole Croston and LeShun Daniels Jr. (Iowa), and Adam Butler and Andrew Jelks (Vanderbilt).

And here is how to determine the set of correct answers (aside from Question 20) that includes every UDFA once.

  • There are eight questions for which there is only one correct answer: questions 1, 2, 10, 11, 13, 14, 15, and 19. That removes Moore, Jones, Croston, Daniels Jr., Rich, Augusta, Carr, and Jelks.
  • Questions 3 and 4 have two answers each – the same two answers (Ellis and Cody Hollister). Therefore those two players must answer those two questions, in either order.
  • Six players appear only once in the entire set of answers. One of them is Carr, whom we have already eliminated, but the other five must answer their respective questions: Vereen (5), Travis (9), Cotton (12), Jacob Hollister (17, whose pairing also eliminates Langi), and Thompson (18).
  • There are only four questions left, and by removing the players already eliminated, we can supply the remaining answers. For Question 6, Moore has already been answered, so it must be Killings. Jones’ elimination in Question 2 leaves Thomas and Butler as the answers for Questions 7 and 8, respectively. Finally, Thomas’ elimination leaves King as the only option for Question 16.

Once again, the offseason lull is broken by an entirely pointless article. I hope you enjoyed it.

The Bills were a sneaky good offense in 2016. 11th in points scored, 8th in expected pts. 3rd-best in turnovers.
When you look at last years Bills critically, it’s truly bizarre that they fired Rex Ryan. Did they expect to go 11-5? The team on the field was as good as you could have reasonably expected for them.
And if they didn’t want all the Rex side stuff, why the hell was he hired in the first place? Nothing changed.Report

He was supposed to make theirs a premier defense, and it only got worse, which is why they didn’t had a winning record. Plus, they were undisciplined. Hiring Rex was a mistake, firing him was not.Report

Yes. There is a BBQ restaurant in Davis Square (Somerville) called Redbones that serves the most divine fried catfish on the planet.

Eh, I’m not a big fan of really sweet BBQ sauces. I’m more a South Carolina guy, with mustard based sauces or vinegar hot pepper sauce. I do like more standard BBQ sauces that are on the less sweet side. Blueberrise, though, not sure about that.Report

There is a chain pub that has two franchises in Boston called the Yard House. They have 140+ beers on tap. I like them. They also have interesting food. They recently put a “Kurobata Pork Burger” on their menu. It is very good, but it comes with “blueberry catsup” which is basically blueberry jelly. Great sandwich once you know to not get the blueberry catsup on it.Report

cqrun

Blueberry catsup….. interesting…. wonder if they bothered adding vinegar to the recipe. Not sure how those two would mesh….Report

Neil X
Member

Nice thing is you can get combos with catfish and ribs, etc. Redbone’s has a unique sauce serve with their fried catfish. It is white, but it is not tartar sauce. It is thinner with no pickles and I don’t think any mayo either. Might be yogurt based? I can’t really describe it,you’d have to taste it. Superb.Report

cqrun

Yogurt is versatile when not crammed with fruit and sugar. Tandori chicken is basted in a yogurt sauce, something about the acidity tenderizing the meat or keeping the meat moist while cooking at a high temperature. Can’t remember…..Report

Neil X

Yep, Indian, Greek and Middle Eastern cooking uses yogurt in many ways. We always have a large vat of Nonfat Greek Yogurt on hand. When we entertain, we buy some with fat. Yogurt marinated poultry is divine. Great for duck too.Report

Yep. Kanter is a Gulenist, which is why he reportedly got disowned by his family in the first place. Read that he hasn’t talked to them in years. Somewhat recently, the Edrogan regime issued a warrant for his arrest. Enes that is.
Of course, the US won’t extradite Gulen himself, so I can’t imagine Kanter is in any jeopardy. Still, crazy stuff.Report
