Several Undrafted Gamecocks to the NFL after Labor Dispute Termination

As you undoubtedly know, the NFL's labor dispute is over. Because the dispute placed a temporary hold on contract negotiations, we have not known the destinations of our NFL-worthy undrafted former Gamecocks. Now, several players have signed free-agent contracts, including the following:

DT Ladi Ajiboye - Seattle Seahawks
OL Garrett Chisolm - Miami Dolphins
FB/TE Patrick DiMarco - San Diego Chargers
WR Tori Gurley - Green Bay Packers
OL Jarriel King - New York Giants
K/P Spencer Lanning - Chicago Bears
TE Weslye Saunders - Pittsburgh Steelers

Of this group, the players who I feel is most likely to land on a roster is Saunders. Barring another character episode of some sort, Saunders has the potential to become a solid NFL player with a long, productive career. The talent is there; he just needs to keep his nose clean. I wouldn't be surprised at all if he contributes in Pittsburg immediately. DiMarco has a good shot to make a roster if the Chargers or someone else feel they need a good blocking back for some of their sets. Lanning has good potential as a punter, but I doubt he'll see much time as a placekicker. Gurley has the potential to be a solid possession / blocking receiver, although I wonder if a receiver-heavy squad like Green Bay is the place he'll end up. King has a reasonable shot at a roster. Ajiboye and Chisolm have a chance but may be longshots.
