5 Players Who Might Find Themselves on the Patriots' Practice Squad in 2013
Jim O'Connor-USA TODAY Sports

Not everyone can make the roster.

Some guys will miss the cut by a mile, while others will only miss it by a hair. Those near-misses are placed in a metaphorical waiting room where they keep mentally and physically fit in preparation for that moment when their numbers are called.

That strip swung the fate of overtime to a make-or-break field goal from Billy Cundiff. He blew the kick and sent the Patriots to the Super Bowl.

That game stands as concrete proof that an undrafted player like Moore can rise from the practice squad and dramatically alter the outcome of the entire NFL season.
