The Philadelphia Eagles enjoyed a highly successful offseason. They spent some draft picks on a slew of talented and much-needed players, traded for Pro Bowl linebacker DeMeco Ryans and re-signed several key members of their own squad in DeSean Jackson, LeSean McCoy, Todd Herremans, Evan Mathis and Trent Cole.
Perhaps the top mark of a good team, though, is its ability to spot talent that other teams can’t; hence, the players that go undrafted in April, yet still find their way onto NFL rosters and leave an impact.
New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz is probably the most notable example, as last year’s Pro Bowler was an undrafted free agent when he first joined the Giants, and then played a key impact on the 2011 Super Bowl champion team.
Other undrafted superstars include Tony Romo and Arian Foster, each of whom is vital to the success of his respective team.
The Eagles have 90 players on their current roster, and many are undrafted. They see training camp as the best opportunity to find their way onto the official 53-man roster.
The following players have the best chance of sticking around once roster cuts are done.
