Default Who will be the post-draft, surprise value FA pickup this year?

In the last 4 years we had

Flowers
Barksdale
Slauson
Boston

All did well the year they were signed (maybe with some diminishing returns after).

Do we get one this year?

Scooby Wright

'tis not uncommon for some draft picks, 'specially on the right side of the line, to have a bad start out of the NFL gate, and.... guessing that @least a coupla few of these guys will turn it around before they call it a career:

Jason Spriggs/Pack
Cameron Erving/KC
Isaac Seumalo/Philly

ps watch: Hercu!es Mata'afa/Minny, Tony Adams/Jax

major health issue worth a look see: Malik McDowell

FA: Alan Branch

and not sure if we could trade Geno, and.... do think our most tradeable asset/player is.... Jahleel.

You think the guy that led the team in tackles, and its not even close, is the most tradeable player ??

The most tradeable player is probably Tyrell Williams or Benjamin.

Gary Barnidge would look respectable in powder blue.

figured I'd get a rise outta you, and yes.... dude has made himself into an integral part of our D, and.... we've got 5 SS's, and.... also agree w/Dha that it's not necessarily endearing to have your S lead the team in tackles.... (Alan Branch please). just throwing a name out there, as do think we would benefit by trading for another Olineman.

#94 in ESPN Top 100 in football 2016.
DNP 2017.
Training hard...good to go now.
Fits the bill as 'move those chains' receiving TE.

The issue will be money.
32 YO... one year deal.
Looks like a good fit all around.
Someone will want to chase a ring w/LAC.

I would also consider fellow ex-Brown, cut-for-no-damn-good-reason Seth DeValve as a bargain pick up.

Joey Bosa is the most tradeable player. Not that we would ever want to trade him.

Really like the Gary Barnidge idea. Still a FA. I wonder why he's not getting a chance. Even if we believe Virgil Green is the answer, there's still huge questions of depth, to say the least.
