For context, if you think of the UDFA signings as extension from our 7 round draft, here is what would be the 1st pick of every round, 6, 7th to fictional 8-13th. So theoretically, your top five signings of UDFA's would be your 8th - 12th round selections.

1st pick of round: UDFA in those ranges based on average rankings of NFL.com, ESPN, Draftek, CBS, Fox
6th = 176 - nobody
7th = 222 - D. Greene, OG = 235, A. Shittu, DT = 246
8th = 254 - none
9th = 286 - B. Marshall, WR = 302
10th = 318 - C. Jones, WR = 322, H. Sharp, WR = 329, C. Wujciak DT = 336
11th = 350 - D. Vaeao, DT = 350
12th = 382 - M. Tavarress, LB = 388

Greene and Vaeao both made my list as they were top 150 on one of the sites; Greene #113 NFL.com, Vaeao 125 NFL.com

Others with just rankings in CBS's top 1000,didn't make the others top 500, etc

M. Johnson WR = #477 per CBS
B. Johnson OC = #700 per CBS (maybe Kelce has no worries?)
J. Depalma LS = #728 per CBS (Dorrenbos??)
D. Gordon TE = #792 per CBS
Q. Gause OLB = #793 per CBS
CJ Smith CB = #883 per CBS
C. O'Neill RB = not in top 1000 on CBS or top anything of other sites.

Overall a decent UDFA haul. Nothing flashy. There were many better choices a lot of times but a solid B.
If two of these guys make the team and two on PS it would be much needed because of poor draft class.

Added a 16th UDFA:

Paul Turner WR LA. Tech, #740 by CBS.

Byron Marshall RB/WR seems interesting as a potential 3rd down back and return man. Had a nasty injury that cost him a year. Unfortunately one site suggested his hands are not very reliable.
