The 2014 NFL draft represents the final major roster construction phase of the offseason, but that does not mean that every team's current roster is set in stone.
The New England Patriots have extracted tremendous value from undrafted free agents in recent years. Just last season, the Pats received big snaps from past undrafted players such as Kyle Arrington, Ryan Wendell and Dan Connolly.
With an especially deep 2014 draft class, the undrafted free-agent crop figures to produce more talent than in most years. At the draft's conclusion, the Pats still had 15 roster spots open on the 90-man preseason roster, and filling out the bottom end with cheap upside is always good practice.
Thus, even though many of the names on this list will be relatively anonymous, several will not only make the team, but play important roles on the 2014 roster. For Pats fans seeking to identify the next young sleeper, check out vital scouting information, measurables and statistics for every undrafted signing.
