Most NFL teams have wrapped their first round of rookie minicamps at this point. The Pittsburgh Steelers had theirs, and the nine undrafted free agents they signed right after the draft have had their first chance to impress coaches and hopefully making positive steps toward the NFL goal.
Obviously, when it comes to a player all 32 teams passed on over the course of 256 picks, it is clear that making the final roster is going to be a daunting task. Oftentimes, the key to an UDFA making the roster is getting on a team with a need at their position, and an excellent scheme fit.
Some of the UDFAs the Steelers signed fall well into these categories. No one should be shocked if three of these young men make the final roster and two or three more find their way to the practice squad. Nevertheless, realistically, what are the chances of any of these players making the team? Read on and find out.
