NFL Draft 2016: Best players available after the draft

There are plenty of big names from big schools available as undrafted free agents.

The 2016 NFL Draft is in the books, but there are still some talent players available as undrafted free agents.

The top player left is Duke safety Jeremy Cash. Considering how many safeties who play near the line of scrimmage were taken, it's a surprise Cash didn't get picked. At worst he can contribute on special teams.

Why, there are even solid Ohio State players worth picking up. Wide receiver Jalin Marshall entered the draft after a junior season where he had 36 receptions for 477 yards and five touchdowns. He can line up inside and outside and offer some athleticism. Buckeyes safety Tyvis Powell is a big hitter who can play near the line of scrimmage.

There are some massive blockers still out there, including guards Landon Turner of North Carolina and Denver Kirkland of Arkansas. Center Jack Allen of Michigan State could stick on a roster as well.

One player out there is Shawn Oakman of Baylor. He had an up-and-down career, but his size and athleticism are so unique for an end. He was on plenty of draft boards before a recent arrest for sexual assault. Here who are the best players available following the 2016 NFL Draft:
