OT Mike Gorlic Jr (Notre Dame)
DE Cordian Hagans (Louisiana-Lafayette)
OG Chris Hubbard (UAB)

OC Joe Madsen (West Virginia)
RB Curtis McNeal (USC)
OC Ivory Wade (Baylor)

WD J.D. Woods (West Virginia)
TE Will Shaw (Youngstown State)
Lot's of DL in there.
I think at least two or three of the Off Linemen make the final 53 for depth. I like Farrell (both OT) and Golic (C and OG) because both can play multiple positions. If I was Golic I'd be practicing long snapping...alot!
Madsen is a knucklehead that didn't care about his grades and missed two bowl games during his career at WVU for it. Doubt he will put in the study time to be a backup. JD woods has good hands and was the third WR option in WVU offense. He can produce decent numbers and could e a serviceable backup. Not a star though, at this point.
JD Woods Highlights. You might want to mute the audio...
Hunter was pretty decent a couple years ago. Floyd blew by him though.
Doesn't seem to be able to break tackles. Guys get a hand on him and he is going down. Does seem to have excellent hands though.

I would say that is an accurate assessment. He would be a possession WR here.
