The evaluation period is done. Over. Finito. NFL teams have stacked their roster at 53. There are 13 former Utes who made their way onto ten teams this season. Here’s the breakdown:
Defensive end Derrick Shelby is still on the active roster.
The only Ute still going strong in Baltimore is Eric Weddle.
Star Lotulelei is on the active roster.
Linebacker Jared Norris was able to secure a spot on the active roster this season with the Panthers.
Kylie Fitts, Utah’s only draftee in 2018, definitely made a lot of noise in the offseason. Fitts is a defensive end turned linebacker.
Darren Carrington and Dres Anderson were cut by the Dallas Cowboys. But Anderson didn’t go too far and is now on the practice squad.
There’s a lot of Utah action on this squad. Garett Bolles, Devontae Booker and Tim Patrick are all on the active roster.
Los Angeles Chargers
Tackle Sam Tevi is on the active roster for the Chargers in 2018.
Los Angeles Rams
Dominique Hatfield didn’t make the 53-man roster but he found a place on the team’s practice squad.
New England Patriots
To no surprise, defensive back Eric Rowe is on the active roster.
New Orleans Saints
Another roster spot that’s not surprising is Marcus Williams.
The Steelers released Brian Allen from the roster but picked him up on the practice squad.
San Francisco 49ers
Things were looking good for Pita Taumopenu, but ultimately he was released from the active roster and placed on the practice squad.
This should be a no brainer but Alex Smith and Tony Bergstrom are on the team’s active roster.
Hans Olsen of The Zone Sports network tweeted out the following list of everyone who has been cut that has ties to the state, and there are a lot of Utes on there. As stated above, some of these guys have been added to practice squads.
What do you think about this group of Utes on NFL rosters? Are there any Utes that didn’t make it that you were surprised about? Let us know in the comments.

All these guys on the 2 lists I sent have a chance to be picked up. Some might already be on PS.
The NFL is a female dog! Too many good men cut!
