6 Undrafted Free Agents Most Likely to Make the Detroit Lions' Final Roster

For as much attention as the NFL draft gets, it's a shame more people don't pay as much attention to undrafted free agents.

Sure, they may not be the marquee college stars Andrew Luck and Trent Richardson were in college, but you can't pretend it's not exciting when your team signs a dozen hopefuls out of college within a day of the draft ending.

And in the case of the Detroit Lions, they actually managed to sign a UDFA who was also a marquee college star.

Now, there's a very good chance that none of the players picked up in the days since the draft will go on to make any impact whatsoever in Detroit or anywhere else in the NFL. That's the nature of the UDFA, and ultimately the reason nobody pays attention.

However, every once in a while, a superstar goes undrafted. More often, a UDFA will make it to camp, impress the coaches and make his way onto the roster as a role player.

I'm not going to say any of the Lions' UDFA signings are future superstars, but here are the six that have the best chance of making some waves in camp and cracking a competitive 53-man roster.
