Undrafted free agency doesn't come with all the fanfare of the NFL draft, but it's almost as much of a resource for building a team.
If you're an NFL prospect, and Mr. Irrelevant gets his ceremonial No. 200-something jersey before your phone rings, you are officially an undrafted free agent.
Many undrafted free agents agree to terms with teams hours after the draft ends. Some players would rather go undrafted, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, so they have more control over where they go. Some undrafted free agents go on to have decent careers in the NFL.
However, it wasn't supposed to be that way for some players.
These guys were supposed to hear their name called at Radio City Music Hall, or at least read their name at the bottom of the TV screen during the fast and furious late rounds.
But these players became undrafted free agents because they killed their own stock with bad behavior off the field or lackluster performances during the pre-draft process.
No man-hug with Roger Goodell for these guys.
