Sometimes the best kept secrets on NFL rosters aren't products of getting drafted. These players often take different routes to the NFL, but they are tied to one common link and that is going undrafted. Fortunately for the Cowboys, they have been quite successful in this area.
Tony Romo and Miles Austin are current examples of the flaws of the draft process. Neither player had character issues, arrest warrants or bad attitudes, but whether it's coming from a small school or lacking a certain measurable, the scouts failed to see beyond the stop watch.
But that's the beauty of the NFL and the proof that if you can play, they will find you. Sometimes I think that an UDFA often has a certain advantage because they can exploit weaknesses in team's rosters and set themselves up for greater success.
Last year the Cowboys were able to add Lance Dunbar, Ronald Leary and Cole Beasley to their list of free-agent findings and 2013 will certainly present these players with many opportunities.
Can the Cowboys add a few more this year? Early indications are that might be the case. Let's check out this year's collection of free agents.
