Former Minnesota defensive tackle John Randle was an undrafted free agent after the 1990 NFL Draft. Minnesota signed him and 137.5 sacks later he is in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Since the end of the 2012 NFL draft, the Minnesota Vikings signed 14 undrafted free agents to the roster. Now I know what you're thinking: Does it really matter?

Yes, it does matter.

The Vikings have had an up close and personal experience with what an undrafted player can bring to a franchise. In 1990, Minnesota signed a defensive tackle from Texas A&I Kingsville after the draft. His name: John Randle.

Randle played 11 seasons in a Vikings uniform and recorded 114 sacks during his time in purple. In 2010 he was elected into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Not too shabby for an undrafted free agent.

There are numerous other success stories of undrafted free agents, too: Kurt Warner, Antonio Gates, James Harrison, and Warren Moon, just to name a few.

With that in mind, let's look at Minnesota's 14 newest players and assess if they have what it takes to make Minnesota's roster in 2012.
