For most college football players their dreams of hearing their name being called on draft day never actually become a reality. Instead of a screenshot of them hugging their mom with their cell phone pressed against their ear they are left to wonder if there is still any shot of making their dream of playing in the NFL a reality.
Immediately following the draft, NFL teams contact dozens of players who they think may have some potential to help their team and invite them to rookie minicamp. After evaluation, most players are sent home, leaving a select few to get an opportunity to go to training camp and continue their dreams.
Eleven undrafted free agents signed contracts with the Bears following the draft and another handful were brought in on a tryout basis for the rookie minicamp in May. Following camp, the Bears signed seven more rookies and they will all be competing for a limited number of spots on this roster.
Here are four undrafted players who could possibly make the 2012 Chicago Bears roster.
