The NFL draft has come and gone, and with it the somewhat Pynchonian language used by NFL scouts to assess prospects’ weaknesses. So here’s a short list of players who were not drafted and one actual reason why — some reasonable, some nonsensical — as listed by the NFL on its official site.

 

Jordan Lynch, QB, Northern Illinois (signed as UDFA with Chicago Bears)

In college: Finished third in Heisman Trophy voting as a senior behind Jameis Winston and AJ McCarron.

Reason he didn’t get picked: “Is short.”

 

Jackson Jeffcoat, DE, Texas (signed as UDFA with Seattle Seahawks)

In college: Big 12 co-defensive player of the year

Reason he didn’t get picked: Has “tight hips.”

 

Keith Price, QB, Washington (signed as UDFA with Seattle Seahawks)

In college: 75 career touchdown passes set Huskies record.

Reason he didn’t get drafted: “Does not look the part.”

 

George Atkinson, RB, Notre Dame (signed as UDFA with Oakland Raiders)

In college: Finished career as school’s all-time leader in kickoff returns and kickoff-return yards

Reason he didn’t get drafted: “Crude eyes and instincts.”

 

David Fluellen, RB, Toledo

In college: The first Toledo running back to record 100 yards both rushing and receiving in one game

Reason he didn’t get drafted: “Could improve sustain.”

 

James Wilder, RB, Florida State

Reason he didn’t get drafted: “Has a long torso.”

 

L’Damian Washington, RB, Missouri

In college: Tigers team captain.

Reason he didn’t get drafted: “Small, skillet hands.”

 

Anthony Johnson, DT, LSU

In college: Four-year player for Tigers.

Reason he didn’t get drafted: “Plays tall and short-armed — too easily turned and washed.”
