With the NFL lockout coming to an end soon, undrafted players from the 2011 NFL Draft will finally be able to sign with teams. This weekend we've looked at some of the top available players your team may be considering.

Kendric Burney | 5'9, 190 pounds | CB | North Carolina
Burney likely went undrafted due to his size and poor 40-yard dash times. On the field, Burney projects as a solid cover-2 cornerback where he can rely on his instincts.

DeAndre McDaniel | 6'0, 212 pounds | SS | Clemson
A do-it-all safety who can make plays all over the field. Is pretty strong against the run. At Clemson, McDaniel was frequently asked to cover the slot receiver so he should be useful in nickel formations.

Deunta Williams | 6'2, 210 pounds | FS | North Carolina
It wasn't the suspension at UNC that caused him to go undrafted, it was a broken leg that kept him out of workouts. Williams is a good coverage safety with excellent hands to make a play on the ball.

Cornerbacks:
Talmadge Jackson | 5'9, 186 pounds | CB | Oregon
Ryan Hill | 5'11, 202 pounds | CB | Miami
Devon Torrence | 6'0, 199 pounds | CB | Ohio State

Safeties:
Will Hill | 6'1 202 pounds | S | Florida
Jeron Johnson | 5'10, 212 pounds | S | Boise State
Brian Lainhart | 6'0, 211 pounds | S | Kent State
Joe Lefeged | 6'0, 210 pounds | S | Rutgers
Davonte Shannon | 6'0, 211 pounds | S | Buffalo
Jerrard Tarrant | 6'0, 204 pounds | S | Georgia Tech
