Anyone know any thing about these guys? I'm not familiar with either. They just a stop gap until cuts?

I don't know much about these guys but just pulled up Oren Wilson and here is what I got from the Sports Illustrated Draft Guide:

Biography: Michigan State transfer who totaled 38 tackles/4.5 tackles for loss/3.5 sacks during his only season on the field at Akron. Started as a sophomore and junior at Michigan State.

Positives: Small yet quick defensive lineman who chases hard to make plays. Gets leverage on opponents, keeps his pads low to the ground and wedges through blocks to get behind the line of scrimmage. Tough to move off the ball, quickly changes direction and displays the ability to move laterally then get down the line of scrimmage or outside the box to make plays. Possesses good first-step quickness, stays with the action and keeps his feet moving on contact. Works his hands well to protect himself.

Negatives: Lacks bulk on the inside and easily controlled by a single blocker. Lacks top pursuit speed.

Analysis: Wilson was a productive college player and has the skills necessary to be used as a three-technique lineman at the next level.

Projection: FA

Just bodies to fill a space is all. I really don't think both put together would even rival the potential that just Rogers alone had
