Super Bowl 2012: Giants' Undrafted Warriors Will Affect the Game

Every NFL team has a handful of players who fill roster slots despite being undrafted.

Some of those players have very successful careers, and all of them are probably told the stories of Warren Moon and John Randle, both of whom were overlooked on draft day.

And Cruz, playing what was essentially his rookie season after he spent the bulk of last year on IR, was ninth in receptions (82) and third in yards (1,536.)

But Cruz is not the lone undrafted Giant who will have a huge impact in the Super Bowl this weekend.
